Be the first to see this beautiful single-family home with a private guest suite in a vibrant neighborhood close to Prospect Park with phenomenal public transportation. Designed by Benjamin Driesler and completed in 1910, this brownstone has angular sun-filled front bays that sit next to a handsome double leaf wooden front door. The interior is filled with light and showcases pristine honey-colored original woodwork. The parlor floor is a celebration of 19th Century craftsmanship. A gracious foyer leads to the front parlor complete with a full length parlor mirror reflecting the light that streams in through a bay window. The middle room contains an charming inglenook fireplace with surrounding benches; the perfect place to sip mulled wine in the wintertime. Overlooking the garden, the spacious dining room has meticulously restored wainscoting with a plate rail, topped by a coffered ceiling and separated by pocket doors. A swing door opens to a bright kitchen with a French door to the garden. The verdant south-facing garden is terraced under the canopy of a majestic oak tree.An elegant staircase, illuminated by a beautiful stained-glass skylight, leads upstairs to three bedrooms and one bathroom. The high ceilings and generous proportions of the bedrooms add to the charm of this level. The large master bedroom with another sunlit bay has a slatted transom framing an adjacent sitting room or office nook. The master is connected to the large back bedroom through a pass-through dressing room with a preserved shaving station. This area could be converted to accommodate an en-suite bath for the master or to enlarge the existing bathroom that already contains a beautiful skylight.The basement can be accessed from a staircase in the kitchen or through a private entrance under the stoop; it contains a large bright room with a kitchenette, closet and full bathroom as well as a storage area and a washer dryer in the rear.Sterling Street between Rogers and Nostrand has an active block association with enthusiastic participation in the “Greenest Block” competition and hosts a popular festive block party. The 2 and 5 trains are right at the top of the block and the proximity to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is supreme. Restaurant owners have recently discovered this area opening up second locations from Vanderbilt and Franklin Avenues. Developers are snatching up vacant lots and building condos wherever they can but beautiful landmarked homes like these are increasingly difficult to find.
