Description
This 20 foot wide Four Bedroom Two Bath classic Romanesque Revival Brownstone sits on one of the finest blocks within The Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. The residences, designed by Architect George Lawton, reflect the eclectic mix of styles that make Midwood Street distinctive. The block, both leafy and magnificent, is a marvel of design. Lawton combines the characteristic Romanesque details of Sandstone and brick, rounded arched openings, stained glass transoms, and the classically inspired Neo-Renaissance styles. The latter's monochromatic facades, reflecting the symmetry and proportion made popular during the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition. On Midwood, both styles, and four distinct facade come together seamlessly and are unified in that symmetry by the repeated use of the dog-legged Stoop. With their quarter turn and landing, the stoops allow more light to enter the Garden level and bring a beautifully cohesive feel to the block. Additionally charming, the block is a mirror of itself reflecting the vision of a twin facade. The grand entrance of the parlor floor opens to a seven-foot wide receiving foyer, soaring ceilings, pier mirror, fabulously carved newel post, and wainscotting. All wooden details, including original shutters and four original pocket doors, are gloriously intact. On this level, a twenty-four-foot formal front parlor with a decorative fireplace, plus a den/media room and a separate home office. Throughout the home, pristine inlaid parquet flooring on the parlor level and inlaid oak flooring on the second level are authentic. Upstairs, the larger two bedrooms connect by the early passthrough, dressing closet, and sinks. In keeping with the original design, the garden level is home to the formal dining room, parquet flooring, wainscotting, an early built-in china cabinet, and the 4th of the home's decorative mantels. In addition, an enormous rear kitchen with garden access is ready, with your vision, to take center stage! Located just off Bedford Avenue, 138 Midwood is an enviable two blocks to Brooklyn's Masterpiece, Prospect Park.
