Prospect Lefferts Gardens is no stranger to beautiful historic townhouses and this 120-year-old home, asking $2.75 million, is no different. The house dates back to 1898 and was designed by architect William Miller, but a full renovation has blended modern convenience with its historic charm.

Spanning 3,800 square feet, the single-family abode offers five bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms spread across five floors. Upon entering through the parlor floor, you encounter an open sitting room on the right— complete with a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves— a rear dining room, arched stained glass windows, and a room toward the rear that can be utilized as a home office or a small bedroom. On the garden level, there is a living room, a huge eat-in chef’s kitchen, a powder room, laundry area, and access to the landscaped backyard.

The second and third levels are where the bulk of the bedrooms are found. The master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom with a claw foot tub and there is another bedroom that also features an en-suite bathroom as well. Between the two floors, there are nine closets that give ample storage space.

There is a full basement and other modern perks include central air conditioning/heating and a built-in surround sound system. Original details like wainscoting, pocket doors, and a skylight were preserved and can be spotted throughout the home.
