112 Rutland Road is an impeccably renovated, single-family home on perhaps the most desirable block in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. A true home, this Georgian/Federal style townhouse offers approximately 3,400 interior square feet, and, unusually for Brooklyn, the home includes private parking for 2-3 cars.
This home greets you with a raised front terrace, a handsome brick façade with bay windows, and mansard roof with dormer windows. The parlor level has a vestibule for coats and muddy boots from walks in Prospect Park. Past the vestibule, there is a triple parlor with separate living and dining areas, and a massive, windowed U- shaped kitchen with custom inset door cabinets, honed Carrara countertops and backsplash, and high-end appliances by Wolf, Liebherr, and Bosch. The rooms are open but nicely delineated in the thoughtful, original historic floor plan. The front parlor has a wood burning fireplace for cozy nights at home.
Upstairs on the 2nd floor is a large master bedroom and an epic master bath with the home's original restored claw foot tub and a curbless walk in shower. There is an additional family room/bedroom with an adjoining, ample south-facing terrace, ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation.
On the top floor are three additional bedrooms, including a huge front facing room with dormer windows, and another huge full bath brightly lit by a new skylight. The bathroom is tiled with cheerful but timelessly elegant cement tile and subway tile, and it has a large cast iron double sink and tub.
On the garden level, there is ample additional entertaining space with a custom walnut wet bar and black slate countertop. There is an additional full bath on this level as well as a large laundry room with an oversized slop sink/dog washing station. Here, you also have direct access to your private garage.
The electric and plumbing systems have been fully updated; there is a new ultra-efficient hot water heating system; and the house is heated and cooled with a new, three-zone central heat and air system controllable by NEST smart home technology. Custom millwork throughout, as well as many carefully preserved original details.
Renovations of this quality and taste are rare, especially in such a convenient and lovingly preserved corner of Brooklyn. Very close to the express Q/B stop at the Prospect Park station, you're conveniently 20 minutes from SoHo and 30 minutes from Bryant Park and Times Square. The 2/5 trains are also nearby providing access to both East and West side service. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Lakeside at Prospect Park, the Prospect Park Zoo, and Smorgasburg on Sundays in the Prospect Park are all close by or take Flatbush Avenue to events at Barclays Center or BAM.
