STUNNING RESTORATION! This turn-of-the-century brownstone, designed by renowned architect Benjamin Dreisler, has been meticulously restored and renovated. The large, sunny double parlor flows into the formal dining room and the gorgeous high-end kitchen steps out to a sun-drenched, lush deep garden. You'll find four bedrooms upstairs, including a huge master with its own charming window seat and a beautiful pass through. The stunning marble bath is illuminated by a skylight and features a freestanding deep soaking tub. The delightful English basement is currently being used as a game room and guest quarters. There are high, exposed beam ceilings, windows on both sides, a laundry room and a full bath outfitted with gorgeous mosaic glass tile. All of the original prewar detail and architectural integrity have been painstakingly restored, including: handsome built-ins, beamed ceilings, pocket doors, all the original hardware and rich mahogany woodwork. You're perfectly located in the heart of Lefferts Manor, which was designated in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. You're surrounded by extraordinary examples of 19th century limestone and brownstone architecture on a peaceful, lush landmark block. You're a short walk to the express trains (4 stops to Manhattan!) and Brooklyn's cultural heart: Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Museum and The Botanical Garden. FIRST OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY MAY 31ST!!
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.
