2111 Albemarle Terrace - Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, New York
Albemarle and Kenmore Terraces are quiet, residential courts located in the most historic area of Flatbush. Albemarle Terrace is a pleasant tree shaded court lined with neo Federal houses and set behind terraces or small gardens. All the homes are of brick laid up in Flemish bond. This historic technique was commonly used in Prospect Park South where Slee and Bryson, the architects, had worked before designing Albemarle and Kenmore Terraces. The homes on Albemarle Terrace were built in 1916-17. 2111 Albemarle Terrace is an extremely charming historically in tact specimen that captures your imagination upon entering instantly. Once you pass the original leaded glass embellished vestibule you have a beautiful, original working fireplace to the immediate right inside the living room. You then pass a second common area (the equivalent to a double parlor) with an arts and crafts stairwell going up to the further floors. Towards the rear of this first landing is a beautiful kitchen well maintained overlooking a private serene back yard. 4 BR's, den 2.5baths surrounded by original molding, plaster relief, wood work and overall charm are abundant. The home has been lovingly maintained by the same family since approximately 1980 and all mechanical functions have been well maintained as well including heating, electrical, plumbing and roof. Kitchen has been remodeled in 2010. Kitchen appliances include Wolf gourmet range, 2 extra freezer drawers built in to existing cabinetry. Outdoor gas grill with outdoor connection to house gas supply. Garden has plantings including perennial roses. Ready for your imprint, this home is an original well kept example of keeping integrity with gentle modern touches and upgrades to accommodate today's life style and conveniences. Basement is semi finished.
