Here’s an impressive single-family brick townhouse in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District that seamlessly blends both old and new elements. It’s located at 52 Midwood Street, one of a row of 10 houses designed in 1898 by the architect William M. Miller and within walking distance to Prospect Park.
The house is Romanesque Revival in style and has a number of original details, which blend nicely with the full modern renovation. There are pocket doors, some original wood floors, wainscotting and, in the technological conveniences department, a four-zone central cooling and heating system and built-in surround sound stereo.
There’s a working fireplace in the front parlor, with built-in shelves and stained glass in the arched front window. More stained glass can be found in the door leading to the rear parlor, which has a Juliet balcony with floor-to-ceiling windows and a small room that can serve as an office or storage.
Another working fireplace can be found on the garden level, which has an open kitchen with an eat-in island, built-in shelves and a ton of storage. Glass doors open to the backyard, and there’s a laundry room off the back with a washer/dryer and extra storage.
The second floor bedrooms are linked by an original pass-through dressing area with loads of built-ins and marble sinks. There is a ton of storage space in the bedrooms — the master on the top floor has three closets — and there are extra closets on both the second and third floors.
Each of the two full-baths are sizable, one with a clawfoot tub and a separate shower, the other with a double vanity and shower tub with glass doors.
At the top of the stairs is a skylight. The basement is finished, according to the listing, but is not pictured.
Now, it’s up for sale again. Warburg’s Jamie Fedorko and Michael Soheil have the listing, which is asking $2.75 million. What do you think?
