Here’s an 1897 brownstone in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, with a renovated interior that combines modern updates with some nice original detail. It’s at 140 Rutland Road, on a prime block between Bedford and Rogers avenues.
It’s a single family that offers plenty of areas to play with, including two large spaces on the garden level that could serve as bedrooms or family rooms. The upper floors offer a standard layout: below, a living/dining room and kitchen divided by a fretwork screen; above, three bedrooms, including a master with an en suite marble bath and a walk-in closet.
Everything has been recently renovated/restored, though not by the current owners, who bought it a year ago for just under what it’s asking now. The kitchen is new and quite spacious, with a Bertazzoni range, a large island, a bay window and white marble countertops.
There’s also a tiled mantel back there, one of several, including a working fireplace in the living room. Other details include stained glass, parquet floors, wedding-cake plaster detailing, pocket doors, wainscoting and another fretwork screen in the front hallway.
There’s a finished basement, a laundry room at the rear of the garden level and a backyard accessible via the garden level. Mechanicals are new and include central air.
Listed by Leslie Marshall and James Cornell of Corcoran, the house is asking $2.475 million. As noted, it sold for not far under that a year ago, so that price wouldn’t seem to be a stretch. Like the look of it?
