We’re surprised to see that this house at 75 Maple Street in the landmarked Lefferts Manor historic district dates from 1910. (At least, that’s what the listing says.) Parts of the exterior and interior appear so altered, at least in the photos, it’s hard to if the house is old or new. While we’re wondering if it hasn’t been a bit over-renovated, there’s no doubt it’s a huge and completely detached single family in what appears to be excellent condition. If it goes for the ask of $1,700,000, it will set a record for sales in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, according to the reader who sent us the listing. What’s your opinion?
