On the border of Clinton Hill and BedStuy, is a majestic five story brownstone, lovingly restored, with most of the original prewar details intact! Enjoy coming home to a truly special, one of a kind, Italianate brownstone on an acclaimed Greenest Block BBG recognized in 2019. Brownstoner boasts, The quintessential Brooklyn row house is the Italianate style brownstone, homes with tall stoops, long windows and majestic entries. There is a perfect symmetry to their uniformity, a pleasing rhythm and solidity to brownstone blocks especially when paired with old trees, overflowing flower boxes, and heavy cast iron railings. As soon as you enter the foyer with its mirrored mantel, original banister, crown moldings and beautifully restored landings with border inlay, you feel complete warmth. Continue through wide original double doors into a spacious and bright parlor floor with high 12 ceilings with plaster details and chandelier, pocket doors, double height windows, crown and picture moldings and original bordered oak floors. The bedroom on the parlor floor has an exposed brick wall with a fireplace opening and overlooks a cheerful garden with seasonal perennials, an herb garden, raspberry bushes, and a flowering Dogwood tree. Tucked in the corner alcove is a small kitchen so, reconfiguring this bedroom into an open kitchen with a deck over the fabulous garden is a great possibility.
