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?
