House, Prospect Lefferts Gardens
This beauty of a rowhouse is waiting for the right touch from a new owner after nearly 40 years in the same family. Bay windows on the front and back, give this classic home an almost emerald cut amongst a block of mixed townhome styles.
As you enter through the parlor level original parquet floors with walnut inlays are still beautiful and intact. The 10’ ceilings and wide rooms inspire grand thoughts with plenty of room for a formal living area, den with fireplace and room for a piano!
The kitchen is at the rear of the home and features original built-ins with glass cabinets, box-beamed ceilings and wainscoting that has not been painted over.
Towards the rear of the main level is a half bath and laundry area with access to the large and private rear yard.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a third that is smaller but very inviting. The current layout features a kitchenette (that would make an amazing en-suite bath for the primary bedroom) as well as a centrally located bathroom with skylight.
The lower level has two forms of egress, one from the front just below the inviting stoop and from the rear to access to the yard. It is finished with tiled floors, a media room, rec room with pantry, bathroom and large vestibule. This lower level is perfect for work at home.
PLG is one of the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn for many reasons, and this home’s location makes it prime. Minutes to Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, under 10 minutes to some of the best cafes, restaurants, bars, grocery stores and bookshops that Brooklyn has to offer.
