IN CONTRACT. Rarely does a townhouse opportunity this special come along -- a Prospect Lefferts Gardens brownstone that has been lovingly maintained by the same family for six decades. There have been only two owners in the history of this generously proportioned 20x45 brownstone. All original details remain, including pier mirrors, woodwork, stained glass windows, 5 fireplaces, master bedroom with dressing room and built in cabinets, pocket doors and original chandeliers. At nearly 2,800 square feet, and with four bedrooms and two and a half baths, 120 Midwood Street gives you room to roam. Prepare to be awed when you enter the gracious and stunning double parlour of this Romanesque Revival home in the Lefferts Manor Historic District built in 1901 by renowned builder W.A.A. Brown. The parlour level boasts 10.5 foot ceilings leading to one of the few sun room extensions in the landmarked district. The peaceful and serene south facing yard enjoys mature heirloom plantings including phlox, peony, and a spectacular 100 year old lilac bush. In 'estate' condition, this home needs your TLC to shine once again, and to restore its original grandeur. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create the masterpiece of your dreams. Note most of the mechanicals have been upgraded in the last 1 to 3 years (new boiler, water heater, roof, and rain gutters). A mere few blocks to Prospect Park, Lefrak Lakeside Rink, The Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Prospect Park Zoo, Express 2/5 and B/Q Trains, Greenlight Bookstore, and amazing restaurants make this the ideal location.
