Unique and rarely available, 159 Clinton Street is a 21' x 45', 4-story, single-family home with professional space, in prime Brooklyn Heights. Built in 1848, it is the center in a row of 9 homes. Graciously well maintained, this classic Brownstone has fabulous light from 21 windows. Original details include crown moldings, fireplace mantels and oak parquet. The home is fully air-conditioned with 200 Amp Electric service and currently utilizes FIOS. This beautiful home offers the best of Brooklyn Heights living and provides an amazing opportunity for taking work-from-home to a completely new level, making it a stellar example of modern urban comfort. Up the classic front stoop and through the welcoming foyer, is an elegant and symmetrically designed grand parlor level with nearly 11' ceilings plus a discreetly tucked away coat closet and powder room. The front parlor/living room is centered on a wood-burning fireplace with original grand columned marble mantle. The formal dining room is perfect for entertaining, with room for all to dine during the holidays. A generous sized eat-in kitchen has a Sub-Zero Fridge, Commercial range and lots of storage. Overlooking bucolic back yards with access to the rear deck enjoy morning coffee or a BBQ here, or wander down the stairs to your extremely private back garden. An original Mahogany banister leads up the stairs to the third floor, which hosts the en-suite, king-sized primary bedroom complete with decorative fireplace and walk-in-closet. The primary bathroom has double sinks, a luxurious soaking tub, a separate shower, and great light. A large second bedroom with cozy wood-burning fireplace and dressing table completes this level. Three additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, full windowed laundry room (that could easily be another bath) are located on the top floor, centered on a large play area/media room. This floor is flooded with natural light due to an oversized skylight, which also highlights the high ceilings and original detailed oak floors. Formerly a doctor's office, the garden level, and semi-finished cellar offer opportunity for an office, or just more space for expansion. This level has a separate entrance under the stoop or can be accessed from the Parlor floor, and includes a decorative fireplace, half-bath, and flexible floor plan. The cellar houses the mechanicals including a 2016 gas boiler, a workroom, multiple sinks, refrigerators, and lots of available storage. Located in the heart of lovely Brooklyn Heights, on an outstanding block, 159 Clinton St is near Brooklyn Bridge Park, and many neighborhood favorites like Colonie, Chez Moi, Sahadis, and the many more shops and restaurants on Montague St., Court St., and Atlantic Avenue. Commuting is easy with access to subway lines 2/3/A/C/N/R/W/4/5 - just 1-2 stops away from Manhattan. This home is rare and not to be missed! Reach out to us for an appointment.
