Old World Beauty on a Premier Block - 10 Sherman St
Located on one of the most picturesque blocks in Windsor Terrace, 10 Sherman Street has all the hallmarks one looks for in a Brooklyn Limestone. Currently configured as a two family, this home features three full floors of living space, a full basement waiting to be finished, a lush South facing garden and original Italianate details throughout.
Entering through the double leaded glass panel doors, the vestibule features original plaster filigree work, hand-set mosaic tile flooring and "egg & dart" adorned pediments. The original Hall Tree stand is truly something to behold - carved Dragon head arm rests are paired with fluted moulding and the silvered back mirror, hinting at what's to come. Parquet flooring with alternating cube and ribbon borders are here and on all floors. Pass through the 8 foot Mahogany pocket doors into the expansive Main Parlor of the house, where you will find an abundance of light flowing through the front bay windows. Soaring barreled ceilings and an ornate floor-to-ceiling mirror with Ionic columns have all been kept and preserved. Both the front and rear parlors are separated by more 5 panel, mahogany double doors. The rear parlor, currently used as a bedroom features beautiful views of the south facing garden.
The traditional Townhouse layout has the kitchen on the garden level with direct access to the sun splashed garden -- perfect for hosting outdoor barbecues and dinner al fresco. The spacious kitchen and open floor plan make entertaining easy, as you can comfortably navigate from the front living room, to the dining room and kitchen. And for your convenience, the first of three full bathrooms is on this level, perfect for those backyard picnics with friends.
The top floor and stairwell are lit by a stunning stained-glass skylight. Currently laid out as an income producing two-bedroom apartment, it can easily be integrated into the rest of the house to fit a family desiring more space. The front room with original picture moulding and turned wood mantel fireplace affords tree-top views through the fluted framed bay window, flooding the room with morning light. The rear bedroom overlooks the garden and glows orange as the sun sets over the rooftops.
The cellar is large and dry, ready to be converted into a fitness center, wine cellar, or a recreation room.
Located in the heart of the neighborhood on Sherman between 10th and 11th Avenues, you are minutes to all the new and established shopping/dining Windsor Terrace has to offer. Krupa, Brunswick, Double Windsor, Farrel's, Connecticut Muffin and Dub Pies are just a few of the choices that are a short stroll over. Newly opened Nitehawk makes movie night out easy. Prospect Park is two blocks away with so much to offer, whether you like running, quiet walks, biking or music: move-in in time to enjoy the successful Summer Stage events. Commuting is a snap: the 15th Street/Prospect Park Station (F and G trains) is two blocks away.
This lovingly cared for home is on THE premier block in Windsor Terrace, call to make an appointment today.
