134 Rutland Road is a 4,320 square foot, five-bedroom, three-bath, three story crown jewel which sits on one of the most beloved blocks within the historic Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The tree-lined block, both leafy and magnificent, is a marvel of ecological design. Built in 1910 as a luxurious one unit, the home has well preserved the classic Romanesque charm that the turn of the century architects creatively imagined. It boasts an ideal layout and has an intuitive flow. The combination of the characteristic facade details of sandstone and brownstone, pristine skylights, ornate detail, and crown moldings, classically inspired by the Neo-Renaissance period, set this gem apart. The grand entrance of the parlor floor opens to a six-foot-wide receiving foyer, soaring 10-foot ceilings, fabulously hand-carved all wooden newel post, and wainscoting. Additional wooden details, including four intricate fireplaces and mantels, are gloriously intact. On this level sits a twenty-four-foot formal rear parlor with bay windows and a decorative wooden encased bookshelf. Two spacious sitting rooms to the front add dimension and enhance the floor perfectly as an office, media room or two (2) additional bedrooms. On the garden level, once you descend the picturesque staircase, you enter an elegant family room perfect for hosting festive holiday gatherings. This room flows into a dining room and a large, spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Just beyond the kitchen is the solarium with southern sun exposure which is ideal for all-day or morning tea, a good book, or a mindless Sunday brunch gaze upon your large backyard patio oasis. Throughout the home, pristine inlaid parquet flooring on the parlor and third level are original and authentic. The third level boasts the two larger bedrooms which connect using the early 20th century designed passthrough with dressing closets. Two smaller rooms are positioned optimally adjacent for use as a nursery, computer room or home gym, whichever best suits your style. In addition to these three spacious floors there is a fully renovated open concept basement that is superb as a recreational space, home theater, children‘s play area or simply extra storage -you can do it all from within the confines of your own home. Whichever design choices you employ, this enormous and enchanting home is ready for your vision to take center stage! Whether you crave a relaxing stroll in the park, a lively bar, a delightful dining experience, a quick coffee, or a quiet evening at home this neighborhood has it all. - Welcome to 134!
