Property Description

This 20 foot wide Four Bedroom Two Bath classic Romanesque Revival Brownstone sits on one of the finest blocks within The Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. The residences, designed by Architect George Lawton, reflect the eclectic mix of styles that make Midwood Street distinctive. The block, both leafy and magnificent, is a marvel of design. Lawton combines both the characteristic Romanesque details of Sandstone and brick, rounded arched openings, stained glass transoms, and the classically inspired Neo-Renaissance styles. Additionally charming, the block's four facades mirror themselves, reflecting the vision of a twin facade. The grand entrance of the parlor floor opens to a seven-foot wide receiving foyer, soaring ceilings, pier mirror, fabulously carved newel post, and wainscotting. All wooden details, including original shutters and four original pocket doors, are gloriously intact. On this level, a twenty-four-foot formal front parlor with a decorative fireplace, plus a den/media room and a separate home office. Throughout the home, pristine inlaid parquet flooring on the parlor level and inlaid oak flooring on the second level are authentic. Upstairs, the larger two bedrooms connected by the early passthrough, dressing closet, and sinks. In keeping with the original design, the garden level is home to the formal dining room, parquet flooring, wainscotting, an early built-in china cabinet, and the 4th of the home's decorative mantels. In addition, an enormous rear kitchen with garden access is ready, with your vision, to take center stage! Located just off Bedford Avenue, this is an enviable two blocks to Brooklyn's Masterpiece, Prospect Park.
