Cute Clinton Hill Duplex With an Interior Designer’s Touch Asks $1.3 Million

February 5, 2016

You wouldn’t guess that this apartment comes from a Brooklyn brownstone, given its modern and airy vibe. But this condo at 396 Franklin Avenue in Clinton Hill, which takes up two floors of said brownstone, has been carefully renovated by an interior designer, who also took care to make sure everything in the two-bedroom unit is family friendly. The result? A beautiful apartment with some artistic touches that seems as pleasing to adults as they would be to kids. Oh yeah, and there’s a private roof deck to enjoy, too.

Entering on the second floor of the brownstone, you’ve got a charmingly-designed living room with custom-built furnishings and decorative tiling around the gas fireplace. On the other side of the first floor, separated by the bathroom, is the wide, spacious kitchen and dining room. We are loving the quirky, flowering wallpaper in here. From those two windows you get views of the other brownstone backyards.

The second floor of the duplex holds two bedrooms and more cool wallpaper. The master bedroom has an entire wall of custom-built, ceiling-high storage. This bedroom also has nice high ceilings–again, more like a modern loft than an historic brownstone.

And the second bedroom has been configured into a children’s room. Here, there’s a wall of built-in bookshelves.

From the apartment’s second level, head one more flight up to a small terrace built out on the roof deck. According to the listing, this outdoor space could be expanded considering that the property comes with full roof rights. Sure, a bigger patio would be nice, but we think this apartment is lovely exactly how it is.
