A Townhouse Near Lefferts Manor with Craftsman Era Charm

townhouse near lefferts manor

Just one block North of Lefferts Manor is a Townhouse that recast row house living in PLG.

And we’re not kidding.

The area is home to some of the most remarkable townhouse architecture in New York City, most of which can be found in Lefferts Manor.

But the architects of that day applied small variations on the Victorian era theme present in homes throughout the neighborhood.

That is until one decided to rethink what row house living could be in 1925 Brooklyn, free of all the era’s 19th century tradition.

And here is where they remade the row house floor plan inside 1,654 square feet.

Just outside Lefferts Manor

Hints of Lefferts Manor are visible in the entryway of this townhouse.

Of the 31 homes on the block, this 2 story semi-detached building still has its original wrought iron, glass paneled doors.

Walk through its vestibule and you step into an oversized, sun filled living room.

Wood beamed ceilings carry through to its formal dining room just off the eat in kitchen.

A stairwell near the guest bath descends into a spacious finished basement.

And it’s there you’ll find a rec room with a fireplace, laundry room and full bath near the building entrance off the driveway.

Sunshine isn’t exclusive to the living room’s picture window.

The bedrooms and full bath on the second floor enjoy North, East and South facing exposures.

And while the bedroom at the top of the landing will grab your immediate attention, it’s the master bedroom that leaves a lasting impression.

Exclusive to your sleeping quarters is a fenced in, outdoor terrace overlooking Lefferts Ave in each direction.

And that’s in addition to your closet that stretches the length of the room.

In Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Just because the neighborhood feels like a small town doesn’t mean you’re stuck in the burbs. You’re practically steps from where all the action is.

Make Prospect Park your backyard with long walks and bike rides, or maybe get in a run before work.

Want to mediate in a zen garden? Cross Empire Blvd and go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Need a gym? Then head around the corner to Planet Fitness inside the old Bond Bakery building.

Shop organically at Wholesome Foods supermarket at the corner of Lincoln Road and Flatbush Ave.

And when work beckons you back to the office, catch the B / Q or Shuttle subway service at the Prospect Park train station just 2 blocks away.

Now I think I did a pretty good job describing what’s available at this home but pictures and floor plans do a better job.
