Back in 2013 director/actress/screenwriter Lake Bell and tattoo artist to the stars Scott Campbell bought this quaint townhouse in north Clinton Hill in the Wallabout Historic District for $1.55 million. Three years, a baby and some creative renovations later they listed the home at 119 Vanderbilt Avenue for an ambitious $3 million. After a price cut last November to $2.55 million and a broker switch, the home with the enchanted Zen garden and top-floor atelier is now asking $2.3 million with new photos to boot.

The four-story, two-family townhouse—it’s currently set up for one family but it’s a legal two—combines creative modern design and comfort with historic details, including a magical landscaped private garden. Situated just north of growing nexus of cool Myrtle Avenue in the charming and unique three-block Wallabout Historic District, the home boasts four original wood-burning, marble-mantled fireplaces, wainscoting, tin ceilings, detailed molding, lots of exposed brick and wood beamed ceilings and hand-nailed wide plank floors throughout.

The open parlor level features a hardwood floor embellished with an original design overlay in the living room; adjacent the dining room an open gourmet kitchen is illuminated by two oversized industrial style light fixtures and features brass hardware, a six-burner Viking stove and vintage butcher block with copper siding.

On the home’s top floor, a massive sun-filled loft-style atelier is lit by two skylights set into high ceilings. Currently configured as a large bedroom, this space also includes water and gas lines to add kitchen appliances for a second apartment or top-floor entertaining suite.
