45 Rutland Road is a huge 4 story neo-Rennaisance home on perhaps the single most desirable block in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. This 20 foot wide, single family home of brick and limestone was built in 1897 by renowned townhouse architect John J. Petit and contains many intact details including original floors, wainscot, doors, and moldings. This home has a huge, almost 20' extension on the first floor which brings the home to almost 65 deep and would allow for a massive deck on the parlor floor. This home is in need of a total renovation but is priced accordingly.
Your new home is in a neighborhood once referred to by the NY Times as "Brooklyn's best-kept secret". Directly adjacent to Prospect Park, the Botanic Gardens, with some of Brooklyn's most beautiful tree-lined townhouse blocks, the comparisons to Park Slope are obvious. New gourmet markets, cafes, and restaurants are all right at your fingertips. The Q, B, 2, and 5 express trains are all less than 5 minutes from your front door making lower Manhattan 20 minutes away. Prospect Lefferts Gardens certainly may be one of the last Brooklyn neighborhoods where a single family townhouse of this size and quality can be found at this price point.
