Here’s a choice three-story home in the Prospect Gardens Historic District with some desirable original details and a landscaped garden with an oak tree. Located at 292 Sterling Street, it stands five blocks away from Prospect Park.
Built between 1908-1910 and designed by architect Benjamin Driesler, the home is less opulent than charming, with an abundance of light millwork to be found throughout.
The parlor level has an inglenook fireplace, a pier mirror and wainscotting, with coffered ceilings and a plate rail in the dining room.
A pass-through dressing room with shaving station connects the two larger bedrooms on the third floor, one of which has an office nook framed by a slatted transom. According to the listing, there is a stained glass skylight above the stairs and in the bathroom.
Neither of the bathrooms are pictured and there’s only one in the main portion of the house, between the larger bedrooms on the third floor (the other is on the garden level).
The kitchen, which has been recently updated, has both wood and marble counters and plenty of room to work. Tucked into the corner is the stove, next to a wall of paned windows and a door leading to the backyard.
The listing says there is a “guest suite” in the below-grade basement, with kitchenette, closet and full bathroom. But the home is a legal one-family (although it is not in the Manor), so the “guest suite” may not be rentable.
Last sold in 2012 for $895,000, the home is just across the street from the Sterling Street station. Kirsten Syrett and Sarah Chamberlin of Compass have the listing, which is asking $1.675 million. Think they’ll get the ask?
