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 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.
