It’s not rare to find an amazing historic townhouse in Brooklyn, but this is a first for us–an Arts and Crafts-style home inspired by the original owner’s career as a shipbuilder.
Built in 1914, 26 Winthrop Street is a 20.5-foot-wide, three-story red brick house that sits on an extra-deep lot of 132.5 feet in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. What makes the residence one-of-a-kind is the living room, modeled after a ship’s stateroom and complete with a vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling mahogany wainscoting.
The living room also boasts an oversized Arts and Crafts fireplace with copper accents and a charming bay window area with a cozy window seat, columns, and built-in bookcases.
Also on the parlor floor is a formal dining room with unique arched stained-glass windows and panel molding, as well as a fully-renovated, country-style chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and granite counters.
The second and third floors house six bedrooms, two full baths and a beautiful sun deck. At the top of the stairs there’s a stunning brilliant blue stained-glass skylight that fills up the stairway with light. And it can all be yours for $1,550,000.
