This interestingly shaped Prospect Heights co-op at 296 Sterling Place came on the market back in January for $1.8 million. It’s now been re-listed, and though the price hasn’t changed, it’s gotten quite the interior overhaul, going from kitschy country to elegantly modern. Thanks to its location in a Flatiron-shaped building, the pre-war loft has open views on all three sides through eight picture windows, as well as 13-foot beamed ceilings, original hardwood floors, and exposed brick.
296 Sterling Place
When we’re looking for a new home we’re often hoping for something different and, well, special, especially after seeing space after generic space. This Prospect Heights pad at 296 Sterling Place is definitely unique. It’s spacious at 1,400 square feet, with 13-foot beamed ceilings and windows everywhere with open views on all three sides–because the building has three sides.
You get the elegant original details of a classic pre-war co-op (original parquet wood floors, for example), plus the exposed brick and beams you’d love in a loft. And with two bedrooms plus an office/third bedroom, there’s room for everyone. Overall, charming modern updates and the above cool-old-building-of-the-day infrastructure–plus the fact that the perfect Prospect Heights location tops pretty much everyone’s list–are the stuff bidding wars are made of. The ask–$1.799 million–could get you an entire townhouse worth of quirky charm a few years back, but not in Brooklyn of 2016.
