FREE STANDING MANSION with 2 CAR PARKING!


Landmark Preservation Commission designated Lefferts-Laidlaw House as a rare surviving example of a freestanding, temple-fronted Greek Revival Style structure in Brooklyn. It may be the only remaining one in Kings County.


To own such a large property, whether to restore it and live in it or to develop it to its fullest potential, is a rare and rewarding opportunity.


The main free-standing mansion was erected circa 1836-1840 and sits on 52' x 120' (double) lot. The current structure has 2,225 square feet. There are 6,237 more square feet available for expansion that will total 8,505 SF.


There is parking for two cars.



Historian william Pierson observed that a temple-form building was set in isolation so that it "stood apart from its environment as an object of large and simple beauty, poised, rhythmic, and absolute." Light pours into the building from four exposures. The front portico is supported by four majestic Corinthian columns and the front door is adorned with rosettes. More unique period details grace the main two-story mansion. There are four decorative fireplaces, back terraces on both floors and large basement with windows.



The location presents further upside as the adjoing areas continue to attract residenstial and commercial development. Close to Pratt Institute, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Fort Greene Park, Long Island University, BAM, Fusion Center for Arts, Kum Kau, 5 Spot, Waza Sushi & Ramen, Trilock, M,G,C trains.
