The Brooklyn neighborhood of Clinton Hill is known for its blocks of historic brownstone properties. This one, a single-family brownstone at 370 Washington Avenue, is lovely inside and out. Built in the Italianate style, it has lots of lavish details that were restored by the current owner. And it’s currently on the market for $3.995 million.
The five-bedroom home is about 3,400 square feet. Upon entering the gorgeous parlor floor, you’ll encounter a central hall distinguished by a striking curved staircase, a library, a rear kitchen, and dining room. The dining room has a large bay window, as well as French doors that lead to the private rear garden. The kitchen was designed by Henrybuilt.
Take the central staircase to the bedrooms on the upper floors. The master suite comes with two walk-in closets, a connected private office, and a bathroom with a cast-iron, claw-foot soaking tub and walk-in shower.
Italianate details have been well kept throughout the house: marble fireplaces, parquet floors, double-wide arched door casings, mantles and crown moldings. That’s paired with modern lighting, a central air system, and updated electric and plumbing.
The large rear garden looks like it’s ready for some landscaping… or at least a barbecue. This home is located along “Mansion Row” of Clinton Hill, an impressive display of grand pre-war residences. It’s also close to the restaurants, bars and shops of Dekalb Avenue. You can’t get more “brownstone Brooklyn” than all this.
