For anyone coveting Brooklyn brownstone living, this four-story townhouse at 107 Greene Avenue would certainly fit the description. The 3,360 square-foot home, asking $4,100,000, has retained its historic details as a backdrop for modern living. With four bedrooms and an enviable backyard, the legal two-family dwelling is currently configured as a single-family home, so there’s potential for adding a second apartment for income or guests.

While a bathtub and hand shower in the bedroom may conjure images of East Village walkups with the shower tucked next to the kitchen fridge, or worse, the free-standing bathtub has been appearing in the best of boudoirs for some time now. This $2.995 million two-family brownstone at 107 Greene Avenue in historic Clinton Hill puts the tub at a jaunty angle right smack in the middle of the master bedroom. The rest of the home is the obligatory mix of painstakingly restored original details (wide plank hardwood floors, tin ceilings, marble mantles, original lighting fixtures and medallions, hardwood doors with elegant glass doorknobs) and modern updates (washer/dryer, Viking kitchen, laundry room), and 3,600 square feet of space, plus rental income, may be worth getting lathered up over.
