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.
This four-story two-family brownstone was converted into a one-family home among the grand mansions and leafy avenues of Clinton Hill. Throughout are historic original details, restored to their former glory and ready for daily admiration.
On the home’s garden floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. Access to the backyard on this floor brings you to a private entertaining space big enough for the whole crowd on a summer evening. Ascending from this level are two staircases; one going to the living/dining room on the parlor floor, and the second heading right to the kitchen.
The kitchen surrounds an enormous island and boasts Viking appliances and a pot filler faucet above the stove.
On the third floor is the master bedroom with what the listing calls a “stunning open bathroom with claw foot tub,” separate glass shower, and double sink. This floor also offers a den with a working fireplace, two additional bedrooms, a laundry room and a renovated bathroom with a claw foot tub. A staircase has direct access to the rooftop, which awaits a new owner’s creative landscaping and decking ideas.
In the home’s partially finished basement is a fifth bedroom and a full bath–and the bathroom pictured above is simple yet impressive.
As a resident of this prime central Brooklyn spot you’d be steps from the Brooklyn Flea Market, Fort Greene Park and its weekend farmers’ market, the Barclays Arena, and 11 subway lines and the LIRR.
