For $2.1 million you can nab a turn-of-the-century Italianate brick townhouse on a tree-lined block in Bed-Stuy. The two-family home measures 20 feet wide and 45 feet deep, and offers period details like inlaid parquet floors, pocket doors, pier glass mirrors, and marble mantelpieces. And who doesn’t want a koi pond?
The garden level features a large formal dining room and an equally impressive chef’s kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Beyond the kitchen is a large south-facing sunroom that leads to the deep garden and the koi pond. This, along with the parlor level, which features a front and back parlor and original detail, makes up the owner’s duplex.
The upper duplex has large bathrooms and what appears to be two kitchens. There’s also a den, an office, and multiple walk-in closets. Wedding cake details, lace plasterwork, and ceiling medallions accent the space beautifully.
Just because 166 Lefferts Place is on a quiet street doesn’t mean it’s not close to the action. In fact, it’s near trendy restaurants, bars and cafés like Saraghina and Peaches, with the Barclays Center and Manhattan a short commute away.
