19 Clarkson Avenue is a two family 3-story limestone in Lefferts Gardens, only blocks from Prospect Park, the green heart of Brooklyn. The elegant large 3000SF, two family townhouse with original facade and bay windows is an incredible three story home configured as an owners' duplex over an income producing rental. This home is everything you've ever wanted, it's filled with light, has wide plank oak flooring throughout and 11' high ceilings that provide it a feel of luxury, style and comfort.
The spacious 3 BR, 2.5 BA owner's duplex incorporates an open floor plan on the parlor level for dining, living and hosting. The expansive kitchen is truly the heart of the home, with a wonderful island and room for cooking, working, and eating. The kitchen overlooks the spacious private backyard. The outdoor space is a quiet sanctuary from the city's hustle and bustle. The stainless steel appliances meet the home chef's every need, with a 5-burner commercial grade range, high end refrigerator, and dishwasher. The parlor level has a functional half bath and a built-in shelving system under the designer stairs.
On the second floor, the layout is extremely spacious, unique and magnificent. The master suite offers a luxurious retreat that overlooks the garden through full glass doors which lead to a private terrace with wooden decking. The ensuite master bath blends chic and functional with stylish tiles, an oversized double sink and vanity, and a large shower with a rain-head. The 2 additional bedrooms have wonderful irregular layouts due to the beauty of the building's exterior shape and bay windows. Each room is unique and flooded with light. The second large bathroom features a luxurious bathtub.
The additional unit on the ground floor has a separate street entrance and boasts a 2BR, 1BA that has been renovated with an eye toward producing income. The floors are slick concrete and the unit offers room for play depending on the owner's future wishes.
This townhouse showcases energy efficient LED lighting throughout, while central heating/air, washer/dryer hookups, for both units, make this home functional. The location could not be more ideal: you are in beautiful Leffert Gardens less than 2 blocks from the park's entrance at LeFrac Center and the Prospect Park lake, home to ice-skating in the winter and skating, boat rental and biking in the summer. You'll also be minutes to everything, including new cafes and shopping. In addition, transportation is located just a few blocks away and the B,Q & 2,5 express trains make for an easy commute into Manhattan.
