On the market for the first time in over 50 years, this incredible Windsor Terrace gem is truly something to see. Lovingly and impeccably maintained, this legal 2-family home has all of the elements of a true “Brooklyn Brownstone” with original woodwork, parquet floors, high ceilings, and classic molding throughout.
Enter up the front steps to the parlor floor and owner’s duplex, you immediately notice every detail from the front doors, to the tiled floor of the front entrance to the entrance-way pier mirror, to the hand-carved banister and gorgeous fretwork of the inside stairway. The living room features another large pier mirror, original floors, and traditional woodwork, which continues through to the middle/sitting room, and finally, to the formal dining room with original pocket doors and a beautiful decorative fireplace. The kitchen is thoughtfully designed with stainless steel appliances and a large built-in pantry for storage. Just off the kitchen is a deck with a staircase leading down to the well-designed backyard- a combination of greenery and pavers- perfect for a quiet morning coffee or for entertaining friends and family. The top floor contains an over-sized primary bedroom and has a decorative fireplace and original fretwork, that leads into a dressing room with 2 closets. There are also an additional 3 bedrooms on that floor, and 2 hallway closets providing plenty of space and flexibility.
The first-floor garden apartment contains one bedroom and features original floors in the living room, a beautiful decorative fireplace, a built-in cabinet with leaded glass, as well as a breakfront for additional storage. The large kitchen provides flexibility with enough space for a dining room table with enough space for a desk/home office.
There is also a full basement that runs the full length of the house with a washer and dryer.
The location is truly perfect- a half a block from Prospect Park, 2 blocks from the bus and subway, and 2 blocks from all of the wonderful shops and restaurants Windsor Terrace has to offer. This townhouse is currently zoned for P.S. 154.
