With wood floors, a marble mantel and a wood-burning fireplace, this Park Slope two-bedroom has numerous charms to offer. The no-fee rental is on the top floor of an Italianate brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District.
One of a row of brownstones completed in 1874, ads at the time show that 44 Sterling Place and its neighbors were built by John Magilligan. The architect/builder behind multiple rows in the neighborhood, Magilligan advertised his Sterling Place properties between 1874 and 1875 as “elegant high stoop” houses with “all improvements.”
Up the stoop and on the top floor, this unit has a living room and small bedroom on one end, a kitchen in the middle and a larger bedroom and full bath beyond. The aforementioned working fireplace is in the living room, along with crown molding and two windows.
While there’s no window in the kitchen, the floor plan does show an interior window into the living room, allowing for some light and air into the space. In addition to white cabinets and counters, the kitchen has an exposed brick wall and room for a small table.
Another exposed brick wall can be found in the largest bedroom which also has a walk-in closet and two windows. The smaller bedroom, with one window and two closets, is currently shown set up as a work-from-home space.
There is no laundry in the building, although the listing notes a dry cleaner and laundromat are within walking distance.
Listed with Marianna Dimentman of Compass the unit is available beginning June 1 for $3,250 a month. Worth the ask?
