Description

A truly unique opportunity awaits at the crossroads of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill to own the best of the old and the new. This spacious and 20’ wide 2-family home was built from the ground up twenty years ago and has been lovingly maintained and recently updated by the current owners. A distinctive brick façade with arched windows blends in seamlessly with the surrounding landmarked homes, welcoming you into this 3300 SF home (not including the windowed finished basement which adds an additional 800 SF) as if it had been there forever, but without the problems of a turn-of-the century home. Live side-by-side with Brooklyn’s Gold Coast mansion row on Washington Avenue and enjoy architectural genius at your doorstep. Currently configured as a garden duplex and an upper triplex, the thoughtful new owner can live on the upper three floors and enjoy a 2500 SF four bedroom, 2.5 bath triplex with a spacious roofdeck and terrace while also collecting a great rent on the lower garden duplex. Or if you need more space, or a home office with a separate entrance, take over the entire house for yourself and live and work with room to spare. This wonderful home is the price of a three-bedroom condo, and yet it offers more than twice the indoor and outdoor space, and is perfectly located with easy access to the A/C/G trains, Fort Greene Park, and a host of amazing restaurants and amenities in every direction. Enter on the main level and go one flight up to the enormous upper triplex. You will be greeted by a double parlor with high ceilings, a large eat-in-kitchen with a terrace off the back, a powder room, dining room, and a dramatic living room with oversized windows and your very own wood-burning fireplace. The suburban-sized and sunny kitchen offers excellent storage space, white Caesarstone countertops, stainless appliances, white cabinetry and a sink with a view. There is even a laundry room on this floor with a full-size vented washer and dryer and extra storage. A built-in banquette is perfect for casual dining, or take your morning coffee out on the terrace. Additional features include a handsome hand-carved mantle and solid wood floors. Head upstairs to three spacious bedrooms and a recently renovated full bath. The front bedroom will amaze with its 16’ ceilings and a glass enclosed home office that can readily be returned to an ensuite bath with plumbing already installed behind the walls. The loft-like top floor is now used as a master bedroom complete with ensuite bathroom, but would also make an excellent media or game room. The second outdoor space in the triplex is a large roof terrace with treetop views and ample space for entertaining. Every bathroom in the house has been renovated within the last two years and includes a stylish combination of stones, glass and Moroccan cement tiles. New glass enclosures have also been installed throughout. The garden duplex is lighter and brighter than a typical garden floor and enjoys great ceiling height, two large bedrooms, and an open living and dining space with a second wood-burning fireplace and hand-carved mantle. A spacious garden off the back has been decked and offers the perfect spot to garden al fresco. The secret surprise in this home is a newly finished windowed basement with a garden walkout, high-ceilings, an additional living room, a spacious home office or guest suite, and a large laundry and storage area. A sophisticated full bath decked out with French Moroccan mosaics completes the picture. Rental income for the lower duplex is currently $4500/month and the unit will be delivered vacant so the next buyer has maximum flexibility. Live in one unit, work in the other, or live in one unit with an excellent income to offset your expenses from the other. Any way you slice it, this turnkey property is the perfect fusion of style and space, history and modernity. The roof was redone three years ago, as were the decks and drains and back façade. The possibilities are endless and the perfect way to affordably move into one of Brooklyn’s most beautiful, iconic, and culturally dynamic neighborhoods.
