About this Property
Built in 1909, this Axel Hedman designed Renaissance Revival, one-family limestone has been thoughtfully updated. With six bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two living/reception rooms and a formal wood-paneled dining room, this home is sprawling and spacious. On four levels and encompassing 4000 square feet, there is more than ample room to live or grow. Many of the original details include pocket doors, tray ceiling and wainscoting in the dining room, plaster ceiling medallions and beautifully finished and preserved wood floors throughout the house. The large eat in kitchen has stainless steel appliances and looks out to the sunny, south facing garden. Baths are newly renovated and a bright, large laundry room has been added to the top floor for your convenience. On the parlor floor, you will find the living room with bay window, additional reception room, formal dining room and kitchen. One of the most interesting features of the house is the back staircase, leading from the kitchen to the "maid's room", currently a sunny guest room/office. The master bedroom & bath and an additional bedroom which is currently used as a den and reached through the original dressing areas of the house, create a large, flowing suite. Master bathroom is located on the second floor. On the top floor are three more bedrooms, a full bathroom and spacious laundry room. Two skylights flood the house with natural light. The English basement/lower level has a kitchenette, full bathroom with large shower and an additional washer/dryer. It can be accessed through the separate street facing entrance, allowing for complete privacy. Bamboo flooring warms the 900 SF area. Perfect as guest quarters, au pair suite, or massive home office, this apartment has many possibilities. Prospect Lefferts Gardens is a vibrant, historic and welcoming neighborhood, bordering the magnificent Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Express Q & B trains are two blocks away. This is a rare opportunity to live on the premiere block in one of Brooklyn's most historic neighborhoods. Prospect Lefferts Gardens is a unique NYC landmarked district of approximately 600 one-family homes, moments to the park, restaurants and cafes on Flatbush and Washington Avenues, and many of Brooklyn's most significant cultural institutions.
