It's been fully-renovated and has many period architectural details, but keep in mind the photos are virtually staged.


While real estate activity does tend to slow down around the holidays, there are, of course, places still on the market. One of them is 175 Woodruff Ave., a four-bedroom, three bath, single-family townhouse in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.

It is four levels, 3,000 square feet, and listed for $1,995,000 (after a couple of price drops from September's original asking price of $2,250,000). 

It's been fully-renovated and has many architectural details such as exposed brick; high ceilings; seven-inch, wide-oak floors; custom millwork; coffered ceilings; and recessed and period lighting. It looks very nice, but you should also know that the images with furniture in them shown here have been virtually staged.

The building has new mechanicals, central heat and air and three exposures. 

The parlor floor has 10-and-a-half foot ceilings, and an open plan living room/dining room area.

The renovated kitchen has walnut cabinetry, Caesarstone counters and backsplash, Bosch and Liebher appliances, a double oven, and wine refrigerator. 

The rear of the townhouse has been opened up with a wall of casement-style windows, which lead to a rear deck. 

The second floor has two en suite bedrooms; the master bath has double sinks and a deep soaking tub and shower. 

The marble and wood bathrooms have floating vanities, casement windows, exposed brick and custom wainscotting. 

There is a third bedroom on this floor as well. 

The garden level has an additional bedroom and bathroom (although no kitchen), as well as a fireplace, making it a nice guest suite or lounge. This floor has a front entrance and access to the yard in the back. 

The cellar one level below is fully finished and has laundry facilities. 


The townhouse is located a half a block from the park, as well as the Q train at Parkside Avenue. Stores and restaurants are along Flatbush Avenue, as well a Church and Parkside avenues.
