The finest historic residences of Clinton Hill seldom hit the market, so clear the calendar for something truly marvelous. This 2Br/1Bath parlor floor apartment is one of four units in a 25 foot wide, pre-war co-op. The current owners recently went through great lengths to fully renovate the kitchen, bathroom, and other key areas with timeless practicality and grandeur. This home effortlessly retains its classic elements while celebrating the modern improvements.
You will be delighted at every turn of this apartment, from the gorgeous floor inlay and parquet to the immaculate decorative plasterwork 14' overhead, not to forget the extra-large windows granting three exposures and consistent light. The modern kitchen has new appliances and cabinetry and includes a custom window with protruding ledge for plants. The main bedroom has been enlarged while the second bedroom has received a custom Murphy bed so it can easily transform into an office or reading room.
This self-managed building is well cared for as well as pet and renter friendly. It was recently updated with copper plumbing, sound-proofing, new roof, landscaping, facade repointing, and upgrades to all common areas. The building employs a cleaning company, an organic pest control and plant specialist for the front garden, and offers extra storage in the basement. All this while the maintenance charges have recently decreased to well below anything else around.
Clinton Ave is an extra-wide and tranquil street located in Clinton Hill. The past few years have heralded a massive commercial revitalization for Myrtle Ave as well as continued upgrades to Fort Greene Park and Myrtle Plaza. Still to come is the massive Navy Yard project, which will introduce a Wegmans grocery store, thousands of new jobs and millions of square feet of commercial space, and a new East River Ferry terminal, all only three blocks away.
