Situated just two blocks from Prospect Park at 125 Maple Street in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, this 25-foot-wide limestone beauty was built by noted Brooklyn architect Axel Hedman in the Renaissance Revival style. Built on a corner lot, the house gets enough sun to feature a stained-glass-wrapped solarium, and moody, dramatic interior details appear luminous rather than dark.
The home spans three floors from its light-filled grand foyer loaded with original details to five top-floor bedrooms. Below is a refurbished basement with a wine cellar and an art studio.
A dramatic corner solarium features marble-topped window sills and intricate stained glass windows.
An open-plan kitchen has chef-sized stainless steel appliances, rustic tiles and plenty of space. The kitchen opens onto an expansive sundeck with treetop views over the neighborhood.
On the home’s top floor are five spacious bedrooms including a stained-glass-skylit master wrapped with windows and a wall of closets.
The home also features that rare commodity: a garage.
