Quintessential Clinton Hill garden home on majestic and tree-lined Clinton Avenue on the border with Fort Greene in an extra-wide brownstone.
You open the door of this townhouse, into a hallway with ample space at the end for outdoor shoes and equipment.
The entrance of the apartment opens onto a slate landing into a living room with beautiful American Walnut hardwood floors. This spacious room, with an entrance to an exclusive back garden, features a custom built-in with bookcase, cabinets and two workstations.
The adjoining extra-large, open layout kitchen makes for a space where family and friends can gather and linger. The kitchen is graced with exposed-brick, wide-plank pine floors, and a coastal-green, leather-finished granite counter. It boasts a Blue Star restaurant-quality gas range, "Shaws Original" farmhouse sink, culinary pull-out faucet, and a Bosch dishwasher.
The back patio, recently done in blue stone, is complemented by a protected, large sun deck planked with the most durable Brazilian walnut providing a wonderful oasis and great place to BBQ.
Outdoor views, including the lovely garden in front of the building, can be seen from each and every room, creating an experience where the outside is brought in.
The Master bedroom is exceptionally large with original details: exposed-brick, a marble fireplace and intact ceiling moldings. Custom-built closets and walnut hardwood floors give the room a finished look.
The second bedroom has a brick oval nook where the original oven for the house was and wide-planked pine floors. Behind French doors, this room enjoys two exposures and is best as a guest or child's room or dedicated work space.
A rare 6-foot clawfoot tub is the focus of a large, slate-tiled bathroom with lovely prewar detailing, a long vanity counter, ample storage, and a hamper cleverly built in a former dumbwaiter.
Behind sliding barn doors, you'll find state-of-the-art LG washer and gas-fired, vented dryer. With the apartment, there is approximately 244 sq ft of basement storage space that can accommodate wiring shelving up to 72? to maximize space. This is also a perfect place for bikes, which are very handy for tooling this great neighborhood.
Clinton Hill is a highly-sought-after neighborhood. This property is half a block away from the go-to shops and restaurants on Myrtle Avenue and within easy walking distance to Fort Greene Park (featuring a farmer's market, music concerts, tennis courts, and dogs off-leash ?til 9am). Other landmarks are Pratt Institute, and the cutting-edge Brooklyn Navy Yard with its artists' spaces, rooftop farm, and camp activities for kids. A 16-mile trolley linking the Brooklyn and Queens waterfront neighborhoods between Astoria and Red Hook is in the planning stages. As is, there are multiple transit options close-by. Manhattan is a 15-minute hop by car and the G train connects many of Brooklyn's neighborhoods: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, BedStuy, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Caroll Gardens, Park Slope and Kensington. Buses are also plentiful.
