239 Lincoln Rd - Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, New York


Perfectly positioned on a scenic tree-lined street in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, this rarely available 20 foot wide legal two family Neo-Renaissance style town house makes coming home a daily reward! In 1893, James Lefferts instituted a single family land use covenant still recognized today making the opportunity to live & invest in this neighborhood extremely rare and desirable.

A tasteful marriage of original period detail and modern appliances, this stately Brooklyn brownstone stands three stories tall and is built 20 x 45 ft on a deep 102.5 ft lot. While currently configured as an owners duplex perched atop a free market floor-through garden apartment, this flexible house can also be delivered vacant for single family users who wish to take advantage of nearly 3,000 interior square feet with virtually zero work necessary. Below the 1 bed plus office garden rental, is a dry & tiled cellar offering you the entire foot print of the house for any combination of a screening room, wine cellar, gym, childrens play room, and storage.

Once up the dog leg staircase, your first step into the parlor floor lands on tile work laid in 1905. Hand carved original wood work typical of early 20th century architecture greets you in the entry foyer, which leads to a loft like, open flowing parlor floor. Entertaining friends and family is easily accomplished with convenient access to a half bath, private terrace and planted garden from the kitchen. The 2nd level boasts excellent natural light provided by sky lights, generously proportioned bedrooms adorned by gorgeous original fireplace mantels and separated by a pass through closet & pocket doors.

Surrounded by the 2/5/B/Q/ and S trains, midtown Manhattan is just a 30 minute single train ride away. Residents enjoy nearby attractions such as Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens, and much more.
