140 Brookwood Road
Brighton, New York
Owners: Michael & Elizabeth Brandt
This handsome Tudor Revival style residence was built in 1929 from a
design by Rochester architect Leander McCord. It was originally the model home for the Brown Brother’s extension of their successful “Browncroft” residential development. This Brighton neighborhood features winding roads, generous lots and the “Triangle of Safety” park all created by landscape architect Francis Hastings Gott. The house was purchased in 2004 by the Brandts, who are only the fourth owners of this property. The rehabilitation of the house, a decade-long project, required extensive interior and exterior work, including roof repair, copper flashing, new gutters and woodwork restoration.
