About this Property
COME IN OUT OF THE COLD and explore the beauty of this magnificent Flemish-bond brick home, designed in 1922 by architect Eric Holgrem. The property is located in Lefferts Manor within the main portion of the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. Positioned in the middle of the block, the home features an elaborate triangular central portico with Doric Columns highlighted by a sunburst decoration and a new slate covered roof. To the rear is a two story carriage house which was recently restored. Its entire exterior was replaced with Hardie board, all new Trimline windows, and a new garage door that can be controlled by the touch of your phone. To the side is a long driveway that accommodates extra parking, all features that are very popular in suburban settings but a rare find in Brooklyn. Enter into the Center Hallway. To the left catch a glimpse of the spacious living room and cozy study. To the right is the formal dining room that boasts a gas-burning fireplace. With the flip of a switch this space becomes a perfect setting for romantic fireside dining. The redesigned kitchen offers cherry cabinetry, granite counters, tiled backsplash, a Thermador professional range and stainless steel farm sink. All of the original woodwork throughout this home was meticulously restored and refinished to a lush patina. For convenience, a full bath has been added on this level. Ascend the staircase and note the elegantly carved cherry banister that guides you to the second level. A wide center hallway separates all four rooms on this floor. To the right is a sweet and cozy sunroom with mullioned windows; there is also a front-facing bedroom, and a hall bath. Windows on both ends of the hallway flood the space with southern and northern light. To the front left is the main bedroom and home office. Once two rooms, this space was reconfigured to create an open plan for closets and an adjoining spa bath. Mission accomplished! The finished basement offers generous open space for entertainment or a guest suite with a full bath. There is a dedicated laundry area and a tremendous amount of flexible storage space. All mechanicals are current, and a new central cooling system was installed this year. Most windows in the house were replaced as well as the exterior wrought iron fencing surrounding the house. Lastly, the main roof is in excellent condition and the brick facade has been professionally power washed. We are very pleased to present this unique Prospect Lefferts Gardens listing. Its central Manor location could not be better. Shopping, transportation and Prospect Park are less than 5 minutes away and midtown Manhattan is less than 30 minutes. A hundred years standing, this remarkable and elegant home awaits your visit. Come take a peek! Shown by appointment only, even during open houses.
