My Notes

Located in the middle of one of Brooklyn's most beautiful landmarked blocks, 398 Sterling Place is a stunning, move-in ready, four story, two family residence. 20x50 on a 123.5 foot southern lot, this spacious home is currently configured as a double duplex, and easily set up for conversion to a single family residence. The lower duplex consists of an eat-in kitchen, full bath, and large sitting room on the garden level, and an open traditional triple parlor on the second floor. The third and fourth floors are a 4 bedroom, 2 full bath duplex. The lower duplex is vacant, and the upper duplex is currently tenant occupied but can be delivered vacant. Perfectly preserved original period detail such as gorgeous fireplace mantels, pocket doors, a parlor pier mirror, exquisite wainscoting, built in cabinetry, gleaming parquet patterns, and carved woodwork combine with renovated kitchens and bathrooms complete with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops to provide the perfect blend of modern living and architectural history. And, you will love the location! 398 Sterling Place is short stroll to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park, and delightful shopping and dining on Vanderbilt and Washington Avenues.  More Less

In Prospect Heights, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 50% less than in New York, and 96.2% less than the national average. This lower local number could help Prospect Heights home values rise more quickly than other regions in New York.
