$2.3M Carriage House in Clinton Hill Blends the 19th Century with the 21st
We found a charmer in Clinton Hill that will make you forget you’re in the city; and let’s be honest, sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered. This adorable former carriage house was fully renovated in 2009, so you get the perfect modernized version of old-school charisma, for $2.315 million.
The versatile garage is heated, and it has a private entrance, so you can turn it into an art or yoga studio and even invite the whole neighborhood over without worrying about anyone traipsing through your home (Not that we have any personal motivation for making that suggestion…).
And if the idea of a yoga studio isn’t zen enough for you, check out the private, two-tiered, landscaped garden out back. This garden has a bluestone patio on the lower level, and a raised lounging area with a fire pit. The brokers point out there’s room to add a swing for an even more hypnotic experience.
Inside, the high-end kitchen features a 12-foot Caesarstone island, stainless steel appliances and limestone radiant heated floors that continue into the dining and living room.
Upstairs, you can see the Pratt Sculpture Garden from the master and second bedrooms, which both have two large windows. The third bedroom overlooks the zen backyard and features an exposed-brick accent wall.
244 Hall Street was built in 1855 and updated to include central air and heat and California Closet systems. Its prime location is close to fine dining on Dekalb and Mytle Avenues, and it’s a pleasant stroll away from Fort Greene Park, Underwood Park, and the Clinton Hill Public Library.
