Built 1892 by prestigious Brooklyn architect John G. Glover, the Romanesque Revival townhouse at 231 Washington Avenue in the heart of Clinton Hill anchors the corner of its block with a presence that matches the best of the historic neighborhood. With a three-sided projecting bay masked by an imposing arcade around arched windows on the parlor level, this one-time mansion of stone and Roman brick is accessed by a two-part stoop. The well-maintained 4,300-square-foot, three-family corner house is over 22 feet wide and filled with original details.

Though it’s legally a four-family dwelling, the house is configured as a three-family home made up of a lower duplex and two upper apartments (it will be delivered vacant). The parlor floor is framed by 11-foot ceilings, oversized arched windows, tall baseboards, intricate window surrounds and intact interior shutters.

The upper floors offer two spacious two-bedroom-plus-alcove, one-bath apartments for extra income. Alternately you can combine all floors for a rambling family fortress.
