    Property Details

    Built in 1899 by developer William A.A Brown and architect William Miller, 68 Midwood Street has a special provenance among the grand limestone townhouses of Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Its first owner was John Lefferts, Jr., whose brother, James Lefferts, subdivided the family's 200-year old ancestral estate and created the historic neighborhood that bears their name. Over the years 68 Midwood Street has been remarkably maintained and updated. Original details abound, including gorgeously intricate woodwork, six fully intact fireplace mantles, stained glass, parquet floors, crown moldings, a butler's pantry, a dumbwaiter, and much more. The ceilings here soar up to 11 feet high, and the north south windows bring light deep into the house all day long. There's lots to explore here, including five bedrooms, two full baths, two half baths, and a sauna. The garden level flows beautifully with a contemporary open plan and large kitchen that are ideal for entertaining and everyday life. Sliding doors and a mudroom lead to a sunny south-facing garden where you can put your green thumb to good use and create your own tranquil oasis, away from the bustle of Brooklyn. The B, Q, S, 2, & 5 trains are all close by for a quick commute to the rest of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and The Brooklyn Museum are just a few minutes away, as are great neighborhood favorites including Edie Joe's, Hamlet Coffee, Glou & Sons Ham Bar, and The PLG Coffee House and Tavern.
