Please make an appointment to view this home during the scheduled Open House. Built in 1901, this Axel Hedman-designed brownstone is an impressive 19.7 x 55 footprint sitting on an atypically deep 127.75 ft. lot. In the same family for over 60 years, the current owners use the legal two-family home as a single-family residence. Over the years, the owners have meticulously maintained the house's mechanicals, creating a perfectly move-in-ready sound home.

This historic grand home, located in the Crown Heights North Historic District, is a beautiful reflection of the Renaissance Revival style. Brimming with original period details such as decorative fireplaces, ceiling medallions, built-ins, parquet floors, original woodwork, wainscotting, pocket doors, and much more, the home exudes old-world charm throughout. Comprised of 3,509 Sq ft- not including the finished basement, 1156 Sterling Place has 5-bedrooms, 3-bathrooms, and a huge private fenced rear garden.

The garden-level kitchen was recently renovated with a marble tile floor, marble backsplash, and brand-new appliances. The eat-in kitchen has a window that overlooks the garden and an adjacent renovated bathroom and water closet. This floor can easily be turned into a two-bedroom, one-bathroom rental unit to offset the mortgage cost. Enter through the double doors into the prized Parlor floor with 10+ foot ceilings in the dining room, den, and living room. The top floor of the house contains four bedrooms, a convenient den/office, and a kitchenette which can be used as another bedroom or study. The finished basement has a laundry room and a cozy recreation/media room.

The location is exceptional, close to Brower Park and Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, and Brooklyn Children's Museum. The 3 train is three blocks away on Eastern Parkway, where you can easily transfer to the 4 and 5 trains. Many new and exciting stores are opening in the area, like the community-run Daughter cafe.
Allowances exist to extend or build an additional 2,587 square feet if desired.
