This apartment at 385 Clinton Avenue in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill calls itself a parlor-floor co-op, but it’s not actually in a brownstone. The apartment comes from a 16-unit co-op, with the listing boasting that it’s “much larger and brighter than a brownstone floor-through.” Indeed, it has three large bedrooms, an office and windows throughout this pretty, historic space.

The apartment is connected by one long, 33-foot hallway. Take a left from the entrance and you’re in the formal living room, which is flanked by windows that look west out onto Clinton Hill’s impressive architecture. Right next door is the formal dining room. This prewar apartment still has many of its historic details in tact, including 11’6″ high ceilings, the original pocket doors, stained glass windows and hardwood maple flooring.

The kitchen, however, has been recently renovated with wood cabinetry, stone countertops and a breakfast bar for some extra seating. The white cabinets and light gray walls keep this room, which also has a window, feeling bright.

Although there are three bedrooms, there’s a downside to this apartment: only one bathroom, which is located off the master bedroom. An alternative floorplan suggests that another could be built in what is now used as an office.

Even the common entryway into the building is quite grand, with a nearly ceiling-high carved mantlepiece. This is a historic Brooklyn co-op building at its finest.
