433 Waverly Avenue is a one of a kind, magical 19th century Carriage house located on the stretch of Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill that's known as the coveted "Carriage house Row" between Greene and Gates Avenue. The house has a Hollywood pedigree and has been in several movies and reality shows as well as rented over the years by bold faced names in town for a movie. 433 is a 3 story and is super wide at 22 feet in width.

Currently configured as an upper two bedroom/two bath duplex and a first floor garden level two bedroom, the house is big enough to live upstairs and have a guest suite or office downstairs.However, if you want to occupy the entire house, there are two staircases which gives you the opportunity to seamlessly combine the 2 units and easily transform it to a 4-5 bedroom/three bath home with THREE levels of outdoor space. Luxury abounds in the interior and virtually all of the fixtures, fitting and surfaces are from top notch names like Waterworks, Baldwin, and Urban Archaeology. The second floor of the duplex is the entertaining hub of the house with a 40 foot living room, open dining room, and a large open chefs kitchen which leads out to a teak walled deck. Its original life as a stable is evident from the exposed original pine beams and the exposed brick walls. All of the doors in the house are very tall, reclaimed 19th century paneled doors which have been dipped and ebonized and outfitted with matte nickel Baldwin door hardware. The floors are all bamboo and the stair treads and window detailing are Indonesian rosewood.There's a full guest bath on the second floor that has floor to ceiling Waterworks green majolica tile and limestone floors.

The countertops are covered with a 2 inch thick French limestone and there's a 6 foot island, lit by matte nickel Urban Archaeology cargo lights. The 20 foot deck lies just off the kitchen and is built around a 150 year old cherry tree that's original to the property.Upstairs on the 3rd floor, there's an expansive master suite with cathedral exposed beam ceilings. The master bath is positively huge and its floor and walls are tiled with 24 inch white limestone. There's a separate Waterworks six foot cast iron whirl pool tub.
