A three-story home in the Lefferts Manor Historic District, a Brooklyn neighborhood listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has hit the market for $1.95 million. Designed at the beginning of the 20th century by prominent rowhouse architect Axel Hedman, this limestone Renaissance Revival residence features a ton of historic details, from the herringbone oak floors to its original fireplaces. Located at 149 Maple Street in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, the home sits just blocks from Prospect Park.

An original French door welcomes you into the home through a tiled entrance foyer. An ornate wood-burning fireplace serves as the focal point on this floor. Large bay windows let in an abundance of natural light and serve as the perfect reading/ relaxing nook.

The dining room sits separately from the living area and has an original fireplace. The eat-in kitchen has a huge island and plenty of storage space. And although its design is outdated, the kitchen offers a peaceful overlook of the home’s private garden.

The three bedrooms can be found on the second floor, all boasting adequate closet space. The master suite overlooks Maple Street and gets hit with southern light. There are two tiled bathrooms on this level as well.
