Stately Home on Sterling Street
Deep two-family townhouse tucked two blocks east of Prospect Park in the PLG Historic District. This 1911 iron brick house is perfectly situated, mid-block, in a row of twenty-one sisters all with connecting front porches. The street, only five blocks long, has express subway stations in either direction. Enter the 20 by 52 ft house through the original wrought iron double doors and glimpse the elegance of a bygone era. The double parlor is illuminated by a bay window providing southerly sunlight. Appreciate the original parquet floors, stained-glass transom windows, plaster moldings and high ceilings throughout. The first floor leads outside to a quiet back porch and rose garden. Upstairs is a rambling two bedroom apartment with the same beautiful decorative oak floors and south facing bay window. Generate income from the second floor or, if converted to a one family house, it could accommodate four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The cavernous basement is partially finished and could be redesigned to make that space you've always wanted. This house is a stunner and, although the kitchens and bathrooms need updating, the desirability is timeless. Located next to Rogers Avenue where new businesses are popping up like crazy. A well-known Mexican restaurant is soon to open at the top of the block and there are whispers of a muffin place too, not of the Connecticut variety. This side of the neighborhood is closer to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park's Carousel & Zoo. Come and experience this vibrant neighborhood.
