Talk about wow factor! Stunning single-family townhouse with all its Neo-Renaissance details completely intact on landmarked Maple Street.
Maple Street runs through the center of the ‘Lefferts Manor Historic District’. It is widely considered the jeweled necklace of an unblemished row of limestone Neo-Renaissance townhouses built by E.H. Bishop & Sons who stated in their original advertising in 1909 were built to appeal “only to people of refinement and culture… these homes were built with no skimping, no substituting”. Over a century later, these important and well-built homes are esteemed as some of the finest examples of their kind. Indeed, these single-family townhouses designed by Architect Axel Hedman, were granted landmark status by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1979 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. Could 171 Maple Street be your opportunity to own one of its incredibly rare gems? This historic home has access to the best of Brooklyn: a block from ProspectPark, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens; close to the Brooklyn Museum, and the amazing main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Offered for $2,199,999 in association with my ling time real estate collaborator Laurie Lewis.
