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.
Want to live in an awesome Prospect Heights townhouse and earn money at the same time? This gorgeous home built in 1910 is currently set up as an owner’s triplex with a one-bedroom income suite on the garden level. It must’ve undergone a pretty intense renovation considering the owners paid $900,000 for it back in 2007, and now it’s back on the market asking $4,075,000. And it has some pretty impressive features, like floor-to-ceiling windows and a floating staircase in the back of the house, which was positioned to join the original building with the four-story glass curtain wall addition. You’ll find exposed brick throughout the home, whether original, whitewashed, or boasting a deep blue hue. There are also keystones with a man’s face carved in them at the entrance.
