There’s no question about it, this Clinton Hill townhouse at 121 Saint James Place is a standout. The historic brownstone, offered for rent at $16,000, recently emerged from a complete renovation by Murdock Solon Architects, underscored by “an artist’s eye and architect’s mind” that incorporates industrial and rustic chic, open and casual loft style and the tall ceilings and endless rooms of a four-story 3,000 square-foot townhouse. Extra-magical additions include 22.5 feet high ceilings, double-height industrial framed windows and reclaimed wood throughout. The home offers four bedrooms, a home office, and a 1,500 square-foot landscaped backyard (which may or may not “make you feel you are in Narnia”). In addition to the stunning triplex, a one-bedroom garden apartment is included, great for guests.
A bright, loft-like parlor floor contains the open kitchen and spacious living/dining area. Ceiling heights vary from 11 feet to a soaring and unexpected 22.5 feet in the kitchen.
And about that kitchen: White-brick walls and industrial pipes and beams meet rustic reclaimed wood floors, and steel framed double-height windows allow a full view of the gorgeous back yard and 200 square foot deck. The kitchen is outfitted with a Subzero fridge, Wolf range, and Waterworks faucets. An original working fireplace is the backdrop for the dining area.
On the second floor you’ll find a luxurious master suite, starting with an oversized master bedroom that adjoins a cantilevered master bathroom, plus there’s a second half bath for added convenience and a walk-in closet large enough to be its own room. You’ll also get an open air study that overlooks the light-filled kitchen below. Details like herringbone flooring, steel-framed shower doors and lots of white painted brick give all of this luxury a fresh look.
The third and top floor offers three more large bedrooms and a full bathroom with a double vanity and radiant heated floors.
Connecting the top-floor bedrooms is a large common area/den/playroom. This floor also has a large walk in closet and a laundry room.
The Fios-ready home, of course, has every modern technological convenience including a Tensui water filter, two HVAC systems that include an air filtration system and a state-of-the-art alarm system.
