Built in 1910, designed by renowned architect Axel Hedman, this lovely limestone townhouse sits on coveted Maple Street, one of Historic Lefferts Manor's most beautiful tree-lined blocks. It offers a wonderful combination of old world elegance and modern amenities. The welcoming entry foyer leads to a large, sun-filled living room with triple bay window and original pier mirror. The central sitting parlor features lovely built-ins including a very handsome fireplace mantle. Pocket doors lead to the windowed formal dining room which is the full width of this 20 foot wide home. The ceilings are high and the original parquet floors are exquisite. The modern and well-designed kitchen with cherry cabinets and stone countertops opens to a large deck with roll-out awning and towering 100 year old rosebushes. There is also a powder room on the parlor level. The second floor features three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a perfect home office. The open English Basement is the full footprint of the house and has windows welcoming natural light, a comfortable den space, a small shop, and the washer/dryer. This very flexible space can be directly accessed from a private entrance at street level. Located in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), this lovely home is close to Prospect Park, the Zoo, the Carousel , the new ice-skating rink, The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the area's newest restaurants and shops.
