Property Description

A standout in the landscape of Brooklyn multi-family townhouses, the rarely available "Kinko Duplex House" was designed at the turn of the 20th Century to accommodate two large apartments in what appeared to be a single family house. What was considered a radical move in the early 1900s is a opportunity for the 21st Century buyer. This 3200 square foot semi-detached double duplex has separate side-by-side entrances, an unusual but wonderful expression of egalitarianism and a quaint gesture from another era. Measuring 20.5 x 40 feet on a huge 120 foot lot, this four story piece of history embodies the Florentine and English Terrace styles, earning its Landmark status. 1062A (upper unit) is a sunny and sprawling upper duplex with a generous entry foyer, a massive 20 foot wide living room, open kitchen and windowed dining area that can accommodate a large table. The top floor of this unit has three large bedrooms and two full baths, and a stairway to a partition with easy access to the roof. 1062B (lower unit) is a charming garden duplex with a living room, windowed dining room, open kitchen and full bathroom on the lower level, three bedrooms and another full bath on the upper level and direct access to the spacious cellar. This unit exits to an oversized back yard with pavers, vegetable garden and a mature, majestic tree. 1062 Sterling Place is situated on a quiet block in gorgeous Crown Heights, minutes from the 3/4/5 subways and a short walk to the area's best shopping, dining and amenities.

Crown Heights | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Originally known as Crown Hill by the Lenape Indians that lived there, Crown Heights has evolved into a diverse neighborhood, occupied primarily by Hasidic Jews and one of the largest Caribbean populations to be found anywhere outside of the West Indies. 

Head over to Nostrand Avenue, one of the main West Indian commercial areas in the neighborhood, which is lined with stores that have been in those exact same places for generations, providing their goods and services to area residents. Kingston Avenue has similar commercial activities that support the Jewish community, and Franklin Avenue shows the most signs of change and gentrification, with an ever-expanding mix of yoga studios, coffee shops, and organic grocery stores that serve the influx of young professionals. No matter which of these areas you visit, you will find an interesting mix of businesses that you wouldn’t normally picture as existing side-by-side. It is all part of the cultural diversity of Crown Heights.

The neighborhood is bisected, from east to west, by Eastern Parkway, which is a beautiful, 3-mile-long boulevard lined with mature trees. This leafy oasis was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famed designer of Central Park, the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, and the U. S. Capitol in Washington, D. C.

You will find a mix of low-rise apartment buildings, large middle-class elevator buildings, brownstones, and some luxury buildings. Century-old architecture stands next to modern residential developments in a visually interesting mix of styles, much as the diversity of the residents exists. People who would not normally meet and mix are forging new pathways to cultural understanding by working, living, and playing together in the same neighborhood.
