Welcome to 252 Fenimore St, a well-preserved and beautifully renovated Edwardian-style single-family detached home situated on a picturesque block across from the famed Lefferts Manor historic district. It features 5.5 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, six closets, 34 windows, central HVAC, and a garage.

The oversized porch is framed by white columns and three-sided bay windows off the living room that continue onto the second-floor master bedroom. Through the grand foyer the stairs with teal-painted risers

... and antique brass dust corners lead to a stained-glass windowed stairwell.

The spacious eat-in-kitchen, open to the living and formal dining room with decorative fireplace, is equipped with a Blue Star 6 burner vented gas stove, as well as Fisher Paykel stainless steel french door refrigerator and paneled 2-drawer dishwasher. Open wood shelves across the windows are perfect for displaying heirloom china or an indoor herb garden. Honed marble counters, exposed ductwork, walnut wood-accented wall, and a walnut butcher block breakfast bar overlooking the landscaped garden are additional design details that offer function and style in this chef's kitchen.

All the bedrooms receive abundant natural light from new double-paned windows, including one of the bedrooms off the master that's currently used as a formal dressing room. The bathrooms are outfitted with Restoration Hardware fixtures and sink (full bath upstairs) and Kohler fixtures (main floor half bath).

The enchanting garden enclosed by horizontal wood fencing offers enough room for a full patio set and includes a play yard that abuts the windowed garage. A semi-finished, windowed basement that the new homeowner can restore is currently used as a laundry room, workshop, and wine cellar, but can also be fully finished to become a functional recreation room.

Located in the heart of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, just two and a half blocks to Prospect Park, residents can enjoy numerous playgrounds, activities at the Lefrak Center (splash pad, roller skating, biking, boating, and ice skating), and the Prospect Park Audubon, Carousel, and Zoo. A Foodie destination, the neighborhood offers an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and bars that will delight the most discerning palate, from authentic Caribbean fare to eclectic and classic American cuisine. With the B, Q, 2, and 5 trains just blocks away commuting to Manhattan is a breeze.
