Though this three-bedroom co-op at 167 Clinton Street in the heart of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District might be a standard railroad flat, it’s definitely in the first-class section: The one inconvenience of the room-after-room layout–having to walk through every room to get to the others–has already been remedied with a closet-lined hallway in the bedroom wing. Situated on the suitably grand parlor floor of a mid-1800s townhouse, there’s plenty of space in this charming residence, asking $1,995,000, that spans the length of the main townhouse plus its rear carriage house.

In elegant townhouse parlor floor fashion, ceilings are 11 feet high. Enter the home and find a gracious corner parlor through a pair of French doors, with two original working fireplaces surrounded by statuary marble.

Framed by casement windows with southern views, built-in millwork and decorative moldings, a large, open living and dining room has a dedicated office corner. A large and well-appointed country-style kitchen is at the center of the home, anchored by a central island. An adjoining laundry area adds convenience.

Past the kitchen, down a hallway with several closets, the private bedroom wing ends in a bright, spacious primary suite with an en-suite bath. The remaining two bedrooms share a crisp, vintage-style–but less optimally-located–bath down the hall and past the kitchen.

This 1849 Greek Revival townhouse is surrounded by similar former single-family mansions. In its current incarnation as a pet-friendly boutique co-op with four full-floor apartments, the building has no underlying mortgage, no flip tax, and low maintenance. There is storage space in the basement, and a resident manager is available on call.
