Built in 1860, this pair of Clinton Hill houses is a rare example of a wood-framed Italianate, and number 357 is now on the market for $3,750,000. In addition to featuring its original clapboard siding on the outside, the interiors have been beautifully preserved over the years, from moldings and plasterwork to five marble mantles. And the magic continues out back, with a secret garden of hydrangeas, roses, lilacs, and a magnolia tree.

After entering there are both front and rear parlors, the latter of which opens to a lovely terrace that leads down to the garden. Both rooms have marble mantles and ceiling medallions, and the rear parlor also has a gorgeous archway with built-ins. There’s a convenient powder room on this floor, too.

A dining room and kitchen make up the garden level, where there are additional front and rear entrances. The kitche has two farmhouse sinks, a Viking appliance package, soapstone countertops, a Spanish tile backsplash with backlighting, and a breakfast nook that looks out into the rear patio and garden. All of these modern additions work beautifully with the exposed beams and brick wall; the wooden fireplace has repurposed as shelving. There’s also a full bathroom on this floor.

The 1,280-square-foot garden truly feels like a secret escape. There’s a convenient covered area under the terrace that’s perfect for storing gardening and outdoor dining tools.

There are two bedrooms on the third floor, including the primary bedroom suite that has an en-suite bathroom. On the fourth floor, there are three more bedrooms, a washer/dryer closet, and a full bathroom. Four of the five bedrooms have fireplace mantles. Though not pictured, there’s also a finished basement with storage space and a washer/dryer.

The house is just two blocks from the G train at Clinton-Washington Avenues and very close to neighborhood favorites like Mekelburg’s, Speedy Romeo, and Clementine Bakery.
