New, 3 comments

Imagine you have around $3,000,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 562 Bergen Street/ 385 Sterling Place
Price: $2,650,000 $2,995,000
Distinctive Feature: Turret Original woodwork
Units: 2 3

? 562 Bergen Street, a corner house built in 1893 and designed by Swedish architect Magnus Dahlander, boasts an ornate, arched entrance and a four-story turret. The interiors include a lot of original details, including paneling, stained glass, mantles, a pier mirror, and a library with built in shelves. The kitchen has been update recently. There's also a landscaped garden.

? 385 Sterling Place might contain, if possible, even more original details. Some of the more notable ones include original parquet flooring, molding, mantles, lots of stained glass, and rooms that are airy and spacious. And, although its not a corner house with a turret, the intricate facade is nothing to sneeze at. It's also almost $350,000 more expensive, though, which is worth keeping in mind.
