169 Sterling Street This is the home you have been waiting for; a beautifully restored neo-Federalist row house, 20x52ft, located in the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Historic District and designed by Architect Louis Danancher in 1910. This light-filled beauty retains the period details of a historic home but with all of the modern comforts. It has an inviting front porch shaded by a plum tree. Originally a two family, it is used as a single family with four bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a finished basement.

The current owner/ architect lived here for three years before completing a thoughtful renovation. The floor plan was mostly kept intact so the walls are smooth plaster topped with beautifully curved coves at the ceilings. Light dances throughout the house streaming in from the south facing double bay windows and is enhanced by filtered light of three colored skylights. Original details include parlor mirrors, coffered ceilings, plate rails and a lot of pretty antique glass transoms, windows and doors. Central air-conditioning has been installed and the home is insulated with recycled blue jeans.

The sprawling parlor level graciously connects each room separated in the middle by opaque French doors. The kitchen and dining room embrace the full width of the house. This stunning room overlooks a cedar deck with a built-in bench and wide staircase to the walled garden with a lovely flowering dogwood tree. The inviting kitchen has modern maple cabinetry, glass tiled backsplash and a breakfast bar topped with recycled glass countertops by Brooklyn-based IceStone. A long hallway with a walk-in coat closet and bathroom leads straight back to the kitchen. Beneath this level is a huge rec. room leading to the laundry, storage and mechanical rooms. This finished bonus room is huge, well-lit and has three windows providing some daylight.

The elegant staircase ascending to the second floor is illuminated by a restored stained glass skylight. This level has two large bedrooms connected by a sky-lit interior dressing room, two other bedrooms with fitted closets and a charming bathroom with an interior window and Duravit deep soaking tub. The large back bedroom was originally the dining room and retains its coffered ceiling and plate rail. The exquisite front bedroom has a parlor mirror and bay windows screened by the plum tree's red leaves.

Sterling Street is a quiet, tree-lined street that displays long, uniform rows of well-kept townhouses. Number 169 is center-block in a series of houses with adjoining walled terraces. This set of homes have iron-brick facades with limestone lintels above double glass doors.

You won't have far to go for weekend outings with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park, Lefrak Skating Center, Prospect Park Zoo and the Brooklyn Museum so close by. Citi Bikes are positioned right on the block along with a wine bar serving delicious small plates and a scrumptious bakery/coffee shop. Unlike parts of The Manor, the subway stations from this block are close with a Sterling Street 2/5 station and the B/Q/S also nearby.
