473 Waverly Avenue is a completely renovated landmarked brownstone on one of the best tree-lined blocks in the heart of Clinton Hill. Currently configured as a 4 bed, 2.5 bath owners triplex over a 1 bedroom garden apartment, this home boasts over 3,500 square feet of living space, and the lowest price per square foot of any fully renovated home in the neighborhood. No detail has been overlooked in this thoughtful remodeling, which seamlessly preserved the integrity and splendor of the home's original details and created a desirable modern home with high-end finishes throughout.
The third in a row of eight two-bay Italianate Brownstones built in 1873 by developer Henry Strybing, the facade has been incredibly well preserved and retains all original architectural details including an arched entrance pediment set on foliate brackets, double entrance doors, intricate bracketed roof cornices and wrought-iron entrance railings. All salvageable original details have been carefully restored, and the home has been fully updated with a new roof, new deck, all new electrical wiring, surround sound and video intercom systems, central air and heating, new plumbing, and gorgeous white oak flooring throughout.
A double entryway with glass paneled doors welcomes you into the open-concept parlor floor, filled with a wonderful mix of old and new design elements. Highlights include 11 foot ceilings, three custom chandeliers, an 8 foot antique mirror in the foyer, full panel molding alongside the staircase and wainscot molding throughout the rest of the parlor, and a fireplace with original details including an imported marble mantle, accompanying wood balustrades and built-in decorative mirror. The large chef's kitchen boasts a hooded Wolf range, as well as incredible storage space with an oversized Sub-zero refrigerator, Sub-Zero/Cove dishwasher, and a large pantry all seamlessly hidden behind custom cabinetry. White subway tiles, Caeserstone countertops, and custom bronze hardware all complement the space. The parlor floors opens directly onto a full width-deck, with a staircase to the sun-drenched garden below.
On the second floor, the elegant master suite overlooks neighboring townhouse gardens and features a custom chandelier, massive walk in closet, and spacious en-suite bath. In the front of the home, a gracious second bedroom retains an original fireplace with a decorative plaster mantel and a custom-fitted antique ornamental cast iron decorative insert. Upstairs, the third floor offers two additional oversize bedrooms with abundant closet space and an additional full bath, as well as a large skylight that illuminates the staircase below.
An entrance through the front yard leads to the garden apartment, completely separate from the main home, boasting gorgeous hardwood floors, a marble fireplace, stainless steel appliances, full bath, and an oversized bedroom. The garden unit is perfect for an in-law suite or nanny apartment, and could easily bring over $33,000 per year in rental income. Below the garden apartment is a basement rec room that is accessed directly through the stair case descending from the main home.
Waverly Avenue is one of Clinton Hill's most well-preserved tree lined blocks, with easy access to countless shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and parks. Numerous highly ranked schools for children of all ages, both public and private, are located nearby. Clinton Hill offers an abundance of transportation options, with a C train less than one block away, and the G, 2, and 3 trains also in the vicinity.
