Description

Exquisite from top to bottom, this finely renovated barrel-front limestone and brick house is ideally situated on a beautiful tree-lined street in historic Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. A true Brooklyn gem, the 3-story residence with finished basement retains many impeccably restored original details, complemented by premium modern finishes and amenities for todayÂ’s discerning buyer. Experience city living like never before in a truly elegant home boasting 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4 working fireplaces, 13 closets, and a generous private rear garden for outdoor parties and pleasure. State-of-the-art upgrades abound throughout including all new electrical and plumbing, a new heating and split air conditioning system, new roof, new Marvin windows, built-in speakers and custom kitchen windows and doors imported from Italy to name a few. A gated courtyard welcomes your arrival. Up the front stoop is a bright, expansive front-to-back parlor for entertaining enriched by dual gas fireplaces. Adjoining is a custom-built library with wall of built-in shelving and cabinetry, a custom-made ladder by Putnam Rolling Ladder, built-in window seat with storage. Two hidden pull out desks make this space an idea schoolwork station or home office. On the ground level, the host will serve in style with a stunning kitchen and formal dining room backdrop. The bespoke kitchen & butlerÂ’s pantry by South Britain Millworks is also appointed with exposed original beams, 2 inch Carrara marble countertop, Waterworks backsplash and Rohl faucets, plus a built-in desk & bench seating. For the chef is a Wolf 36 inch gas range with vented hood, Thermador towers fridge, freezer & wine fridge, and Sub-Zero under-counter pullout drawer fridge. The butler's pantry with bar sink and additional storage makes entertaining easy. The inviting dining room affords a lovely setting for sharing meals enhanced by original preserved details, Cole & Sons wallpaper, and a gas fireplace. Awaiting through glass doors off the kitchen is a landscaped white blooming garden oasis featuring a magnolia tree, bluestone patio & wall, and outdoor speakers. Four bedrooms with ample custom-outfitted closets and a full Waterworks bath with Carrara marble tile walls and heated floors occupy the upper level. The comfortable master has a fireplace and walk-through closet area with 2 sinks. One bedroom is used as a dressing room, and another larger bedroom connects to a dressing area with sink. Extending the living space is a finished day-lit basement with a playroom, media room, custom built-ins, oak flooring and exposed beams. A fifth bedroom with en-suite bath is located on this level along with the laundry room and additional storage. Topping the appeal is a prime location on a coveted, charming Lefforts Manor street near Prospect Park, shopping, dining, and a host of conveniences.
