1st SHOWING JULY 6th This is a rare opportunity to own an impeccably-restored and preserved, single-family limestone townhouse and garden in the middle of one of the most desirable tree-lined blocks of the landmarked Lefferts Manor Historic District, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. This well-built, solid house boasts 10-foot first-floor ceilings and the original hardwood parquet floors made of tiger oak with variations of intricately-patterned maple and mahogany inlay borders. The middle parlor, which serves as a library living room, features a fireplace mantle with porcelain tiles, built-in bookcases on both sides, high-raised oak-paneled wainscoting, and an inglenook with a storage chest. Oak pocket doors lead to the large formal dining room that spans the full 20-foot width of the house and is illuminated by an oversized, south-facing window that overlooks the garden. The dining room features more well-preserved original details: a coffered 10' high ceiling, decorative oak fireplace mantle with porcelain tiles, shoulder-high raised red tiger oak-paneled wainscoting and a closet under the staircase. At the rear of the house is the bright, spacious eat-in kitchen that features two large windows overlooking the garden, a decorative tin ceiling, white beadboard wainscoting, antique heart-pine plank flooring, white wood cabinets, black soapstone countertops, and a backsplash wall with white ceramic subway tiles and black and ochre mosaic tile border. The second floor features two large bedrooms, each with three large octagon bay windows, fireplace mantles with porcelain tiles, and closets. There are two original dressing room areas, which connect both bedrooms, separated by a pocket door and featuring original details: built-in closets with beveled pier mirrors, corner marble sinks, and medicine cabinets with triplicate beveled mirrors. The other two bedrooms are smaller with large windows and can be used as bedrooms, home offices, nurseries, or guest rooms. The full bathroom features another large skylight, white subway wall tiles, black and white pinwheel mosaic floor tiles, jet bathtub, glass-enclosed shower with a rain showerhead, a pedestal sink, and a built-in medicine cabinet with a beveled mirror. The finished, spacious basement is an open space that runs the full length of the house and offers plenty of recreational and storage space. There are 7.5' high ceilings and a large window that faces the yard and brings in natural sunlight. The basement can also be accessed through a separate street-facing entrance. This large and open room can be used as a recreation/game room, an entertainment room, an artist's studio/workshop, an exercise room, or a children's playroom. There is an additional storage area at the front of the house where the utility meters are located, with plenty of space for bicycles and other storage. There is a separate area for the mechanicals; another storage area with a window, two closets, and the laundry area (washer and dryer). There is also a full bathroom with a window, a large glass-enclosed, walk-in shower with a rain showerhead. The south-facing garden is accessed via a stairway in the kitchen and is quiet, peaceful, tranquil, and provides ample space for entertaining and grilling.
