Welcome to 982 Sterling Place, a grand four-story, barrel front brownstone in landmarked Crown Heights North! In its entire lifespan of 115 years, 982 sterling has remarkably had only two owners. This spectacular home is 18.5 feet wide and 45 feet deep, situated on an oversized lot measuring 140 feet. Built by renowned architect, Axel S. Hedman in the Renaissance Revival style, this home is dripping with amazing period details which include cornice ceiling with modillions, plaster medallions, original inlaid floors with ornate borders, oak pocket doors, hand-carved balustraded staircases and posts, magnificent built-in cabinetry with beveled glass and even the seldom found speaking tubes. Rarely do you find a home like this that is move in ready, with an updated kitchen and...completely new, large-capacity boiler with new gas piping throughout, serving this structures many exquisite antique copper cast iron radiant heating systems. Enter through the door surrounded with fluted columns and use the coat hanger on one of two pier mirrors before walking into the parlor and witnessing the majestic Waterford crystal chandelier which the owner has vivid memories of painstakingly cleaning each individual crystal by hand. Stained-glass transoms over three full-height bay windows mark the beginning of the front parlor with a majestic arched fretwork partition dividing the room into the middle parlor which features glass-doored bookcases and an intricately carved fireplace. Walk through the pocket doors into the rear parlor filled with original high wainscoting, coffered ceilings and a second staircase leading directly to the kitchen. This well-preserved 4070 square foot brownstone features a recently reimagined studio apartment on its top floor plus a full cellar. Located in the heart of Crown Heights, a bucolic tree-lined neighborhood that is known for its many different cultures residing within as well as Brower Park, The Brooklyn Museum and burgeoning Nostrand Avenue where you can take the Express A train for a 25 minute commute to Manhattan as well as the 2,3,4,5 trains which are minutes away.
