PRETTY AND PEACEFUL. This lovely turn-of-the-century brick townhouse is currently used as an owner's duplex over a garden rental, but could easily be reconfigured as a one-family residence. Soft light filters through the house from over-sized windows, transoms and skylights. It's rich in detail, including: beautiful marble fireplaces in almost every room (3 that are wood-burning), pristine plasterwork, pocket doors, tin ceilings, period light fixtures, soaring ceilings and arched entryways. The parlor floor is gracious and welcoming with an easy flow. The eat-in country kitchen is sweet as can be with stainless steel appliances and butcher block counters. The master bedroom is dreamy and romantic with a sleeping alcove and cozy fireplace. Perhaps best of all, this is one of the rarified properties that offers a 131-foot lot, creating a peaceful, park-like retreat. Both the front & back garden have been professionally landscaped, perfect for a relaxed indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The house has been lovingly maintained, its updated mechanicals are in excellent condition and there is plenty of buildable space for room to grow. You're located on a landmarked street in the heart of the historic district. You're steps from the B, Q, 2 & 3 trains, a short walk to Prospect Park and all of the neighborhood's wonderful shops and restaurants. A home of this quality is rarely available and shouldn't be missed.
Runs from Flatbush Avenue to the west, Atlantic Avenue to the north, Eastern Parkway to the south and Bedford Avenue to the east.
