Three-Bedroom Limestone With Rounded Bay in Prospect Lefferts Gardens Asks $6,800 a Month

Here’s a two-story house in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District for rent with a rounded bay and slew of original details. Located at 211 Midwood Street, the limestone rowhouse also boasts a finished cellar and is three blocks from Prospect Park.

Designed in 1910 by Benjamin Driesler, the house has a setback front entrance that, along with the decorative lintels, also defines the sister homes on the street. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the tenants could be a family or a trio of roommates.

The front living room has a decorative tiled fireplace with mantel sandwiched between two built-in wood cabinets, original inlaid floors, wood wall moldings and millwork door and window surrounds throughout. There’s a fretwork screen leading to the formal dining room, which is painted yellow, with more built-ins as well as intricate wall panels under an original wood shelf.

More modern is the galley kitchen, with a full wall of windows and door looking out on the backyard. There’s a small eating bar, plenty of counter space and cabinet storage and a dishwasher.

Both pictured bedrooms, on the second story, have original floors and wall moldings, and the master also brags a millwork screen leading to a closet and storage. All three bathrooms appear to be in good shape, one with a glass-brick window and two with glass-enclosed stand-up showers.

The finished cellar, which might not be legal living space, has exposed beams and brick, laundry and a kitchenette with a microwave.

The home is on one of the area’s most charming historic strips and is equidistant four blocks from the Prospect Park and Sterling Street stations. Skyward Steel’s Joan Joseph has the listing, which is asking $6,800 a month. What do you think of the place and the price?
