385 Sterling Pl - Prospect Heights, New York


385 Sterling Place is a historic three family home, currently configured as a single family, and steeped in extraordinary pre-war charm and detail. Built in 1901 and situated in the landmarked Prospect Heights neighborhood, this four-story brownstone sits on an extra-large 20 x 131 lot. Measuring just shy of 3,600 square feet, the home is currently laid out as a four bedroom (4BR) / three-and-a-half bath (3.5BA) and represents the ideal blend of original details and charm with modern convenience and practicality.

As you enter through the parlor level, your eyes are immediately drawn to the original period details which include intricate carvings, a hand-carved mahogany banister, plaster moldings and ceiling medallions. The oversized ceiling height on the parlor level lends an air of lightness and openness to the home. The pièce de résistance of the parlor floor is the formal dining room, replete with original custom cabinetry and storage, stained glass windows, a decorative and ornate wood-paneled ceiling, and one of the homes' five stunning marble decorative fireplaces.

Just off the formal dining room are a set of stairs which lead to the garden level, which features a completely re-designed and re-imagined eat-in kitchen, a living room, washer-dryer room and access to your oversized back yard. The kitchen is truly a chef's kitchen with a six-burner venting Wolf range & double oven, a center island and high-end appliances including Sub Zero and Bosch. Double glass doors lead to the extra deep backyard (131-foot lot), which is a wooded patio for the first twenty feet before giving way to a planted and well-kept lawn.

The third and fourth floors of the townhome house the four bedrooms. The first bedroom floor features a pass through between bedrooms with two wash basins and four closets (all original), decorative marble fireplaces in each of the bedrooms and a chic and stylish full bathroom. The second bedroom floor also has two bedrooms and one full bath, and features Manhattan skyline views. The kitchen on the fourth floor is still intact for those who desire to convert back to a multi-family. Wall-mounted AC's are found in each room of this home, eliminating the need for window AC units.

Located on one of Prospect Heights' most beautiful and historically significant blocks, 385 Sterling Place is convenient to Grand Army Plaza (two blocks away) and the 2/3 subway, Prospect Park (three blocks away) and all the dining and conveniences found in both Prospect Heights and Park Slope.
