Charmingly restored 1922 Craftsman rowhouse in prime Crown Heights South literally minutes away from Franklin Ave/Medgar Evers subway stop, Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens, and Prospect Park. Retaining all of its original detailing, this is a rare find in an extremely convenient locale that is known for its early 20th century classical architecture.
This comfortable 2,000 SF home features three bed, dining and living rooms, kitchen, breakfast nook, kitchen deck, sun deck, a fully finished English basement, four garden spaces, and two full bathrooms. Through the Golden Oak stained doors and paneled vestibule you are greeted with a polished cherry wood staircase landing in a spacious living room with an open arch to the dining room featuring original Arts & Crafts tiled fireplace with unique hand-wrought Spanish Revival copper hood, maple bordered parquet floors, coffered beam ceilings, book nook with leaded glass cabinets, and a comfortable window seat storage bench. The main floor features a chef’s kitchen with an original butler's pantry, granite countertops, a 5 burner KitchenAid gas range & dishwasher, and GE Profile French door fridge. This leads to a cozy breakfast nook, with Moroccan stone decorative floor tiles, that opens to a wrought iron deck featuring a natural gas grill hook-up and shady garden with trees, David Austin roses, herbs, and berry plants - perfect for entertaining. The top floor features restored stained glass windows beneath brilliant skylights, and the warmth of honey-toned parquet floors, three well-proportioned bedrooms, and a fabulous sun deck with southern exposure. The primary bedroom has two full closets and a cozy window seat overlooking the tree-lined street. The full bath on this floor has the original tub and reverse domino pattern motif tiles. The finished English basement features a roomy laundry room with a front-loading Maytag washer/dryer, a full bath, and an expansive recreation/home office area with separate entry to the deep garden and front.
