Among the beautiful townhomes of the Lefferts Manor Historic District, 67 Midwood Street is a singular masterpiece.

Past the front garden and up the turned-stoop steps, the vestibule has been completely restored: the doors and fixtures are new while the tile floor and coffered ceilings are original. Upon opening the front door, the palatial living room calls back to an earlier age of soaring ceilings and open living space perfect for entertaining.

Topped by arched leaded glass transoms, the south-facing windows have been restructured and resealed. A decorative fireplace sits in the middle of the lounge space while a pier mirror with vintage globe lights anchor the dining area. The powder room has been finished with floor-to-ceiling high gloss lacquer and cut crystal chandelier.

The show-stopping professional chef's kitchen is something out of a dream. The walls are adorned with floor to ceiling custom cabinetry - their full potential accessible thanks to a library ladder. Next to and around the cabinets are top-to-bottom subway tiles accentuating the high ceilings. The center island features a six-burner Jenn-Aire Pro Series stove (vented) and is bordered by gorgeously fatigued soapstone. There are two dishwashers but washing dishes by hand is a pleasure thanks to the oversized sink and garden-facing window with resealed leaded glass transom.

There is under-cabinet lighting throughout and a TV nook for keeping up with the game or staying current with the news amidst preparing the daily feast. The bar room comes with wine-fridge, secondary sink and shelving space for serving ware. The breakfast nook comfortably seats six and boasts views of the brick homes along Maple street. Outside, the deck is perfect for a relaxing evening as well as a transition to the garden below.

Heading upstairs past the linen closet on the second floor landing, the laundry room holds a washing machine, two vented dryers, a sink and marble countertops for folding clothes. The leaded glass entryway door is yet one more original restored fixture.

The first bedroom on this level is currently setup as a home office with custom shelving and north-facing windows overlooking the charming clay roof shingles of neighboring homes. The primary bedroom features a decorative fireplace framed by built-in closet cabinets. The windows boast powered shades and blackout curtains (hardwired to the house) and the room can easily accommodate a king sized bed with myriad furniture arrangements.

The pass-through bathroom comes with oversized dual-head shower stall, private toilet closet with Toto bidet and dual sinks with surround mirrors. The stone countertop is original while the radiant-heat marble floor is new. Opposite the sinks is a dressing room with pocket door entry.

The top level of the house offers fully sealed exposed brick and a rebuilt copper skylight with motorized shade. A rare delight: there is a laundry chute tucked into the landing, leading back down to the linen closet below.

There are two-and-a-half bedrooms on this level. The north bedroom is a massive space with floor to ceiling closets. The south bedroom boasts walk-in closet and overlooks beautiful Midwood Street. The half-bedroom is currently used as a playspace and amidst it all is a walkthrough bathroom adorned with soaking tub, private toilet closet and dual sinks.

Heading back downstairs, the garden level is a fully independent one-bedroom luxury residence, accessible both from the inside of the house as well as outside under the stoop. There is storage beneath the stoop and the mud room houses coat hooks, shelves and cabinets - the perfect place for bikes, wagons and more.

At the front is a bedroom fit for a king-sized bed with room for furniture. The windows gaze upon the front garden and feature powered shades with blackout drapes (hardwired to the house). Opposite is a spacious walk-in closet. The ensuite bath features heated marble floors, dual sinks with Caesarstone countertop, private toilet closet with Toto bidet and an oversized marble shower stall.

The back of the garden level is a den-style living room with banquet dining area. The kitchen comes with stainless steel Jenn-Aire appliances including vented gas range, dishwasher and refrigerator. The hallway laundry closet completes the picture and cements ultimate usability of the space.

The garden provides picturesque turf lawn surrounded by elegant shrubs. The large blue stone patio allows for a seating area, dining area and grilling space. A slim trench drain was installed during the renovation to lead rainwater away to the street.

Beneath it all is a finished basement adding another 400 sq/ft of useable space as well as 250 sq/ft of closets and storage. Cedar storage closets ensure clothing and linens will last for years to come and the poured concrete and sealed floor provide a clean look.

Renovation conceived and executed by Victoria Tomlinson Cole Interior Design.
