Description
Rarely does a home of such caliber and character come to market in historic Prospect Lefferts Manor. Situated in the most convenient location imaginable-voted one of Brooklyns "Greenest Blocks"-with easy access to the shops, subways and Prospect Park, only 20 mins from Manhattan, yet tucked away on a quiet tree-lined street offering a respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life. This charming three-story barrel-front limestone with a finished cellar has been lovingly cared for and wonderfully updated by its current owner, offering its next steward the opportunity to continue the legacy of high style juxtaposed with a rustic modern vibe and modern comforts. Relish your new life in a one-family home flooded in light and original details, a flexible layout offering up to 6 bedrooms, a newly renovated designer kitchen, three fully renovated baths, and a landscaped yard complete with bluestone hardscaping, perennials, your very own magnolia and cherry tree, and the sounds of birds all day long. Awash in perfectly restored historical details throughout, some of the delights you will find include inlaid wood floors, four fireplace mantles, glass and bronze door knobs, plaster moldings, wainscoting, exposed brick, high ceilings, original plantation shutters, exposed wood beams, oversized windows, and a stained-glass skylight. Enter in through the garden level where you will be greeted by a gracious living room awash with original details and bay windows, and a breathtaking designer kitchen that masterfully combines the best of the old and new. Flooded in light all day through oversized casement windows with a peaceful garden view and easy garden access, this kitchen marries form and function to the fullest. Custom gray cabinetry with a pull-out pantry, oversized Bosch fridge, Carrara marble topped counters and island, deep white porcelain apron-front sink and exposed ceiling beams are just some of the delights that await. Large enough for an oversized dining table and sofa, this room becomes the centerpiece of the home with the inclusion of a Hearth cabinet fireplace that crackles and warms your soul. A full marble bathroom on this floor features stunning Carrara mosaics on the floor and walls, and a not-to-be missed steam shower with a marble bench for two. Take a steam and then sit by the fire! The dramatic double parlor floor one flight up offers two spacious rooms separated by French doors. Prepare to fall in love with the high ceilings, incredible light, bay windows, and the addition of a charming renovated full bath complete with clawfoot tub. Use these rooms as extra bedrooms, or keep as-is for a grand entertaining space or additional home office space. A striking staircase with a hand-carved mahogany newel post and banisters will boldly greet your guests when they arrive at the top of the stoop. Two extra-large bedrooms on the top floor share a renovated bathroom and a large dressing room. A smaller third bedroom is now used as a kitchenette, but can easily be returned to its old life as a bedroom, nursery or home office. Wake up to treetop views and great light through the oversized windows. This home perfectly embodies the high/low Brooklyn aesthetic. The clean, dry and high-ceilinged basement now serves as a game room and laundry room and adds incredible storage opportunities to this already spacious property. Front gardens and a lovely stoop will welcome you home every day while also providing a green-screen for privacy from the street. Additionally, the house has very well-maintained mechanicals in addition to having a recently re-pointed front and back faade. If you are looking for a feeling of home, and not just another cookie-cutter house, please make an appointment today. The community of Prospect Lefferts Manor is a rare small-town in a big city, offering convenience, space and privacy just a short subway ride to the city, ample street parking, gourmet grocery stores, and of course, Prospect Park and Express subways only 5 minutes away including the B, Q, S, 2 and 5 trains.
