Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are selling their Park Slope brownstone. The couple purchased the Italianate row house for $1.91 million in 2006. Located at 36 Sterling Place in the Park Slope Historic District Extension II, it is now on the market for $4.599 million.
This one-bedroom, one-bath co-op in a grand Anglo-Italianate brownstone has considerable charms but the current renovation is not making the most of them.
This is a classic Italianate brownstone in Prospect Heights built around 1871 with bracketed window lintels and cornices, and original details on the interior like decorative window moldings and wainscoting.
This 1903 French Renaissance-style row house is verily besotted with carpentry. It’s got a coffered ceiling in the dining room, built-in glass cabinets, garlanded window casings with stained glass transoms, a built-in breakfast nook, decorative baseboard moldings and paneling, and even a wooden sauna inserted in the master bathroom.
It is almost impossible to watch a television show or movie set in Brooklyn without encountering a scene set on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Whether it features heartbroken characters leaning on the railing with Manhattan as their backdrop or chase scenes along its length, the promenade is the perfect setting.
