MODERN LIVING IN CLASSIC BROWNSTONE! This stunning 1899 Romanesque Revival townhouse is located in Lefferts Manor, the main portion of the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District, one of four communities that abut Prospect Park. This 3-story home was designed by George Lawton for William A. A. Brown. Brown also designed the row of 4-story townhomes along the first block of Midwood Street between Flatbush and Bedford, perhaps the most architecturally significant townhomes in the single family community of Lefferts Manor. Nonetheless, number 168 and the other nine brick and limestone houses in its row, are designed to perfection and still make quite a statement. Some of their best features are the dog-legged stoops, full-height rounded bays, stained-glass transom lights, decorative ornamental plaques, and galvanized cornices. Inside, the home is also beautifully appointed. Most of the original features like the unique turned intricately carved center staircase, scroll work, and pier mirrors are still very much intact. The grand triple parlor which is exquisite runs the full 20 feet width of the house. The house has been completely updated. As part of an extensive renovation, a new kitchen was constructed on the parlor level, and a lovely powder room was added as well. Perfectly executed for style comfort and convenience, this was an excellent way of bringing modern into the mix without disturbing the original flow. Note the gorgeous drum pendant and the original decorative medallion from which it hangs. Downstairs the garden level offers very generous space too. The layout includes a large playroom (once used as a formal dining room), bedroom, full bathroom, and family room with a French door that leads to a lovely landscaped garden of perennials, vines and flowering annuals. Upstairs the top floor offers three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and generous closets. Off the master bedroom, the new contemporary en suite pass-through bathroom has a gorg
