William H. Reynolds may not be a recognizable name in New York City history today, but back in his day he was known as an influential real estate developer, politician, and entrepreneur who developed much of Prospect Heights. He is responsible for this lovely townhouse at 323 Sterling Place, located right off Grand Army Plaza. Over the years much of the interior has been preserved, so the home feels like a time machine taking you back to the days Reynolds was building up the neighborhood.

The triplex home, located in the Prospect Heights Historic District, features an extra-large parlor floor. Decked out with woodwork–moldings, parquet floors, window shutters, doors, mantlepieces, a pier mirror–the parlor holds the living area, dining room, and an eat-in kitchen with access to the garden below.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. (Expect more woodwork and claw-foot tubs in the bathrooms.) The bedrooms are just gorgeous, with carved wood and tile mantlepieces, intricate parquet floor designs, built-in shelving and more large, wood-framed windows.

The office is the one room that doesn’t feel like its dripping in details, although it still has its original window shutters.

The lush garden outside, not to mention the stately brick and brownstone facade, is just the icing on the cake. William Reynolds did good on this home, and the future owners took the time and effort to perfectly preserve it. Its next renter is lucky indeed.
