Prospect Lefferts Gardens Townhouse With Stained Glass, Juliet Balcony Asks $2.75 Million

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.

The home is a former House of the Day and was the most expensive sale in the neighborhood the last time it changed hands in 2007, as Brownstoner reported in 2011.

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?
