Your chance to own a piece of Brooklyn's Storied past, thoroughly remodeled for your future -- Absolutely stunning 3.5 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Townhome in Historic Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
With your first glimpse of the leafy front garden entrance, you'll know every detail in this spacious and airy 2 Family has been meticulously looked to. From the restored iron and glass front door to the original built-in China Hutch, historic details combine with modern conveniences and sensibilities to create this beautiful home. All the work has been done for you. On the parlor level the space flows from the entry through to the garden door, providing front and rear garden views throughout.
Keeping original details in place -- Oak Parquet flooring with both cubed and Greek Key inlaid borders, fluted door casings with Federal Pediments -- they mix with modern recessed lighting, Carrera Marble and Custom Cabinets in the separate pantry with wine bar, and brand new Chef's style eat-in-kitchen. Large, light and airy, the kitchen has everything needed to entertain family and friends -- 36" Bertazzoni Master Chef 5 burner range, double wide Maytag Stainless Steel refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher are all here, and an expansive Carrera marble island with breakfast seating completes the picture. Another very smart addition on the first level is a powder room with designer tile, neatly tucked away off the inner parlor room. And beyond the kitchen, waiting for grilling, is a private deck overlooking a well-manicured garden.
The top floor continues the grand theme: high ceilings plus a restored stained glass skylight allow light and air to waft through; original single panel doors are throughout; a full bath with mosaic tile, designer custom vanity and marble basin is off the main hall. A King-sized rear facing bedroom has a double wide closet, and a third bedroom makes for a perfect guest bedroom or home office. There are also two hallway closets giving ample storage options.
But the real gem is the sprawling three room Master Suite. The main room, easily fitting any sized bed plus furnishings, has a 3 sided bay window for watching sunsets above the trees. Adjacent is a half bedroom waiting to be customized into the walk-in closet of your dreams. Through an opening flanked by Ionic Columns is an interior sitting room with built-in original cabinetry, perfect for Sunday morning lounging. Further on is the en suite Master Bath. A true showcase, it has a custom built shower with classic subway tile over a mosaic pan, Grohe fixtures, dual basin sink and custom hardwood vanity.
On the garden level is your open rec room/home gym/man cave/laundry room, with the added bonus of a storage/garden shed in the rear and front-of-the-building mud room -- a great "way station" -- to keep the outdoor grime outdoors while still protecting bikes, strollers, rain boots, garden equipment, etc.
As mentioned, the property has been gone through with a fine tooth comb, meaning all the systems have been updated to the most modern standards. High efficiency mechanicals, new electric and plumbing throughout, and most importantly, a multi-zone HVAC system for the ultimate in climate control.
The location is sublime -- Sterling Street between Bedford and Rogers -- you are minutes to all the new and established shopping/dining Lefferts Gardens is becoming known for. Blue Sky Bakery and Oaxaca Taqueria are right on the corner. The newly reopened Southern Gate to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is a short three blocks, Prospect Park is four. The best pies in Brooklyn, Pels Pies, are two blocks, and Midwood Flats (classic burgers, brews and Bourbons), Wholesome Gourmet Market, PLG Coffee House and Tavern, and longtime local Caribbean favorite DE Hot Pot are all in a 5 block radius. Commuting is a snap: the Prospect Park Subway Station (B, S and Q trains) is four blocks away and the Sterling Street Station (2, 5) is less than two.
The work is complete and this house is ready to be made a home. This tasteful and significant renovation has been done for you. This is your chance to enjoy Brooklyn living at its finest in this wonderfully modern, reimagined home in a charming, historic Brooklyn neighborhood!
