Bed-Stuy Townhouse with Flair and Flexibility Asks $2 Million

June 3, 2015

This four-family brownstone at 278 Clifton Place in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, just hit the market for $1.995 million. It’s a well-preserved historic brownstone that offers plenty of potential for conversion. It’s currently set up as an owners duplex with two rental units above, but as the listing says, “You have the flexibility to make it a grand single family home, smart double duplex, triplex over garden rental or four floor-through income generating units.” The house already has an extension that includes a terrace for the third-floor rental unit. The extra space and the flexible configuration gives the new buyer plenty of opportunity to use their imagination.

We love the fun touches like the multi-colored geometric wall design, but the house has lots of historic detailing too. There’s the original floral plasterwork and moldings, pocket doors, decorative fireplaces and carved mantels. There aren’t any photos of the rental units, so it’s unclear if those units also look this nice.

10-foot ceilings and big windows give the house a bright, open feel. The open kitchen and dining room open up into the backyard garden, which currently is part of the owner’s duplex.

There’s both paved and green spaces in the yard—the perfect setup to throw a party. Not a bad place to enjoy the summer in Bed-Stuy, that’s for sure.
