Four-story 1870s Italianate row house on a gorgeous brownstone block in the Clinton Hill Historic District. The house is approximately 3,700 square feet total, with each floor measuring 20 feet x 42 feet plus an extension on the parlor and garden floors. We have just finished a year-long architect-led renovation.
The home has retained original details, plus there was an extensive renovation in the 1920s. There are beautiful original moldings in every room, 11-foot ceilings, original fireplace now working gas fireplace, tall townhouse windows.
Unusual center stair and center stair hall as opposed to the standard Victorian townhouse configuration. The view from the grand staircase into the hall, with its domed ceiling and pillars is breathtaking. Though the other lights in the house are classic modern pieces, the center hall has an authentic 1900s gas chandelier. The walls of the center hall are a dark shade of Benjamin Moore’s Witching Hour, an amazing blue-black-grey.
Also of note: new white oak herringbone floors, massive custom steel factory doors leading to the deck, extension “modern igloo” breakfast nook with custom built in bench and floor-to-ceiling casement windows, door through shower to “secret” upper deck in master bath (can film through shower into bathroom), large cellar with cool original icebox “pie safe” good for storing gear, decorative transoms on tall townhouse windows at front of house. All newly-installed classic mid-20th-century lighting and furniture, custom kitchen with carrara marble countertops, dramatic black stairs. All new windows throughout.
Classic brownstone stoop leads to huge custom townhouse doors and tiled entry hall. Large closet for storage. In addition to the grand center hall, the spacious living room has built in bookshelves, nelson and gubi lighting, tall townhouse windows with deco transoms, herringbone flooring, 11 foot ceilings, modern and vintage rugs and furniture, art.
There is a long extension/breakfast nook with floor to ceiling modern windows, custom walnut bench and powder room.
