We have never seen anything like this ‘teens one-family at 26 Winthrop Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Outside, it’s Neo-Classical in red brick with white accents and dormer windows. Inside, it’s a ‘teens Tudor with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, Gothic-meets-Arts-and-Crafts fireplace, a bay window with a window seat in a niche with built-in bookcases, parquet and inlaid floors, and floor-to-ceiling mahogany paneling — and that’s just in the living room.
The dining room also has paneling, although less of it, as well as arched stained glass windows. The kitchen is updated, with granite counters and new Arts and Crafts-style cupboards with an arch over the sink that matches the ones in the living room. The inlaid floors continue upstairs, where there are six bedrooms, a blue stained-glass skylight, and a roof deck. We’d love to know what the two bathrooms look like, but they’re not pictured.
The house is not in the landmark district, unfortunately, but the listing says it was built in 1914 by a shipbuilder as his own house. The living room is “a replica of a ship’s stateroom,” it says.
What do you think of it and the ask of $1,550,000?
