Description

One of the most special townhouses in Brooklyn, this serene and elegantly dramatic home combines award-winning design with historic detail and texture. This home is richly outfitted with smart touches and lush details, but thoughtfully designed so that the townhouse character and historic patina haven't been run over by a steamroller of fleeting trends. Set on a landmarked block in leafy Lefferts Manor, 179 Midwood is a quick walk to Prospect Park, several grocery stores, many coffee shops and restaurants, bustling Flatbush Avenue, and both the express B/Q train and the 2/5 trains. So many incredible amenities lie just a few blocks away: the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Lefrak Center with its ice skating rink and summertime splash-pad, and the Prospect Park Zoo to name a few. Upon entering you walk into a rare true mudroom! A place to leave your dog's leash or a scooter, or simply take off your boots and hang up your coat. With an architectural touch inspired by the iconic Flatiron building, the powder room smartly divides the otherwise open living/dining/kitchen area--creating subtle separation and leading visitors through the space to the statement making picture window overlooking the richly detailed, serene garden. The kitchen features Henrybuilt cabinets, Miele appliances, and a stunning marble island with integrated marble sink. The garden has been featured in the Gardenista Guide, on Brownstoner, and in the WSJ. The upstairs is lit with a large skylight over the main staircase. The lush bedroom suite at the front of the house has a to-die-for dressing area and en-suite bath with a double vanity, an Agape Spoon tub, and a walk-in shower tiled in handmade zellige tiles. At the back of the house is another suite, this one perfectly set up as a bedroom with attached study area; or a nursery plus play area; or simply as two separate bedrooms. The design is flexible. A second full bath plus a washer/dryer completes this floor. On the lower level, there's plenty of space for a workout room, play space, and/or another home office. There's a second washer dryer as well as lots of room for storage. A state of the art high velocity central air system heats and cools the home. All showings are by appointment only- -please reach out the sellers agent for scheduling.
