If you have been waiting to move into a beautiful, and affordable, historic one-family home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, your opportunity has finally arrived. 59 Sterling Street is a perfectly preserved example of Neo-Renaissance architecture, situated on a serene and tree-lined block that has won the Greenest Block in Brooklyn for many years in a row. Shaded by stunning trees and plantings in every yard, with Southern exposure, this home is a quick walk to the B and Q trains at the Prospect Park Station, and exemplifies everything that makes Brooklyn the perfect place to call home. A large front porch perfect for plantings and evening relaxing welcomes you into the triple parlor with original nailhead inlaid wood floors, high ceilings, custom millwork, and windows on three sides. The main floor is perfectly laid out for a spacious living room, a formal dining room, and a kitchen in the back leading to a breakfast room with laundry off your private garden. There is even a powder room. The kitchen has new stainless appliances and a quick cabinet upgrade will make it perfect. Upstairs are three sizable bedrooms complete with dramatic bay windows, an art-deco skylight, original moldings, and great closet space. The light-filled bathroom is a rare luxury. The windowed lower level has another full bathroom and loads of space for a home office, a guest room, a media room, and fantastic storage. The house has been lovingly maintained by the same family for generations and is in move-in condition with a new boiler and hot water heater. With a few upgrades to the finishes, you will be living in a modern masterpiece. This home requires no layout changes, just the opportunity to customize the finishes to your personal taste. A small shared driveway will accommodate a Mini-cooper or a Smart car, and your own private garage in the back will protect it from the elements and also offer storage galore, or an indoor/outdoor space to enjoy when the weather is less-than-perfect. Enjoy a pastoral garden with a gas hookup for your grill. This warm and welcoming block is the last block in Brooklyn that is allowed to shut down the street on July 4th for a block party every year; a true testament to the residents’ timeless devotion to a neighborly way of life and the warm welcome you can expect when you call it home.

Lefferts Gardens
Runs from Empire Boulevard to the north, Clarkson Avenue to the south, Ocean Avenue and Prospect Park to the west and Nostrand Avenue to the east.
Brooklyn’s bedroom community, Lefferts Gardens, and its historic district, Lefferts Manor, have an array of architecturally diverse homes. The quiet residential neighborhood of Lefferts has architecture ranging in style, including Victorian, Neo-Renaissance, Romanesque Revival, Neo-Georgian, Federal and Tudor – a far greater variety than one finds in typical brownstone Brooklyn. These two-story, three-story and four-story homes were built from 1890 to the 1920s, whereas most of the detached homes were built a bit later, towards the 1930s and 40s.
