Let there be light!

279 Sterling Place #1C strikes an exquisite balance between old and new: a clean, modern loft in a landmark converted schoolhouse.

Inside, this stunning duplex has been completely reimagined by L/AND/A (Light and Air) Architects, and the work lives up to the firm's name. Light streams through the 10-foot windows of the immense living room with all its old partitions removed to increase the sense of volume. While it maintains pre-war details like exposed brick and hardwood floors, the innovative design allows light to filter through the entire apartment and maximizes usable space with a central armature that contains built-in bookshelves, a coat closet, a powder room, a washer/dryer, and the brand-new kitchen. Down the staircase, the lower level includes two bedrooms, a full bath, and a large vestibule by the separate entrance.

Outside, 279 Sterling formerly Old Public School 9 has an ornate Romanesque Revival red-brick and terra cotta facade. Designed by James Naughton, the building is a NYC landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. The building has a common outdoor space and bike storage, and is seconds from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and fabulous restaurants like Olmsted.

If you must leave the neighborhood, the unit comes with a PRIVATE PARKING SPACE in a gated lot, and is seconds from the 2/3 train at Grand Army Plaza.
