This turn-of-the-century brownstone was designed by renowned architect Benjamin Dreisler and had a top-to-bottom renovation. The large, sunny double parlor flows into a bright dining room. The gorgeous and gleaming high-end kitchen features cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops, glass backsplash and LG appliances. It steps out to a sun-drenched garden and deck. Upstairs are four bedrooms including a huge master complete with a lovely window seat and oak passthrough, updated with Kohler fixtures. All of the original prewar detail and architectural integrity have been meticulously restored including: handsome built-ins, beamed ceilings, pocket doors, wainscotting, skylights and rich woodwork. Beautiful wide plank real hardwood oak floors run throughout. You also have a full, semi-finished English basement with high exposed beam ceilings, windows on both sides, w/d hookup and a framed out bath. Perfectly located on a peaceful, leafy landmark block, you're surrounded by exquisite turn-of-the-century architecture. You're a short walk to Prospect Park, the express 2, 5, B, Q trains (4 stops into Manhattan!) and Brooklyn's cultural heart: The Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens and Library.
Runs from Empire Boulevard to the north, Clarkson Avenue to the south, Ocean Avenue and Prospect Park to the west and Nostrand Avenue to the east.
Brooklyn’s bedroom community, Lefferts Gardens, and its historic district, Lefferts Manor, have an array of architecturally diverse homes. The quiet residential neighborhood of Lefferts has architecture ranging in style, including Victorian, Neo-Renaissance, Romanesque Revival, Neo-Georgian, Federal and Tudor – a far greater variety than one finds in typical brownstone Brooklyn. These two-story, three-story and four-story homes were built from 1890 to the 1920s, whereas most of the detached homes were built a bit later, towards the 1930s and 40s.
