Prospect Lefferts Garden Detached House With Mantel, Stained Glass, Built-ins Asks $1.495 Million

There’s an unexpectedly large dining room at the center of this otherwise modest early 20th century brick house and the wainscoting, stained glass window and mantel provide some period style for at-home dining.

Historic maps show 177 Winthrop Street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens was built circa 1905. The two-story brick single-family has an angled bay, a bracketed cornice and an enclosed front porch. The circa 1940 tax photo shows the porch was once topped by a balustrade.

In addition to the dining room, the first floor includes a living room, center stair and kitchen at the rear. There are more details to be found including wood floors with inlaid borders, an original stair, pocket doors, picture rails, built-in bookcases and more stained glass windows with a heraldic motif.

The windowed kitchen has a black and white tile floor, wood cabinets and access to the rear yard through a mudroom.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a full bath. The largest bedroom is set in the front bay and has a walk-in closet. The floorplan shows the other two bedrooms are joined with a passthrough that includes a sink; whether its fittings are original is unclear as it’s not shown in the listing photos.

The full bath has a claw foot tub and stained glass window with a reno that includes a patch of exposed brick, a double vanity and marble tiled walls.

There’s laundry in the basement along with another full bath, this one with a shower.

A glimpse of the rear garden shows a brick-lined patio with planting beds at the perimeter.

The property was featured as a House of the Day back in 2014 and it sold the following year for $1.25 million. It’s now listed with Jessica Buchman of Corcoran for $1.495 million. Worth the ask?
