Among the brick homes and brownstones of Clinton Hill, this federal-style two-family townhouse at 240 Lafayette Avenue is currently configured as a single-family home. Asking $3,300,000, the four-story house has maintained its historic character, with five marble mantels, ornate ceiling medallions, exposed brick, tall ceilings, and full-height townhouse windows. Within the traditional layout are modern upgrades–like central heat and A/C–that make it a lovely and livable home–with the option of creating a rental apartment or suite.

Up the tall stoop and through expansive mahogany double doors, enter the home’s parlor floor. With alabaster lighting fixtures above and reclaimed chestnut floors below, this grand level contains two parlor rooms, front and rear, open and filled with sunlight.

Through the rear door is a paved garden with elevated planting beds. There is also a renovated bathroom on this floor.

Downstairs on the garden floor is a sunny, modern kitchen, framed by rustic exposed brick, white-painted beams, and colorful patterned wall tiles. The kitchen boasts a dining and prep island, new appliances, and plenty of cabinets and shelving for storage and display. Adjacent is a dining room and casual living room. The open space gets plenty of light through custom windows.

The townhouse currently offers five bedrooms and five bathrooms. On the next floor are an expansive primary bedroom and a second bedroom. A large bath has been renovated with both marble luxury and industrial flair.

On the top floor are three more bedrooms and a bath. The smallest of the bedrooms is currently being used as a colorful home office.

A newly-poured, renovated cellar complete with a half-bath can be used for storage and laundry or incorporated into daily life. This classic Clinton Hill home is steps from both the G and C trains and across from Underwood Park and its playground.
