Looks like the double-wide carriage house at 410-412 Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill is up for a renovation — and an extra story — soon. The home, a HOTD last year, was up for sale at $2,995,000. According to public records, it sold for even more this May — $3 million, to be exact. Now the new owner is getting ready to present the Landmarks Preservation Commssion with big reno plans. The Community Board Two Land Use Committee heard an application this month to “construct a third floor addition and restore the rear and front façades, including installation of new windows on the front façade, repoint the brick and repair the cornice.” A very interesting project indeed. Think a third floor addition would ruin the charm of the two-story carriage house?

The details at 140 St. Johns Place are strikingly similar to the Ortner house at 272 Berkeley Place, but it’s been recently updated and is set up as an owner’s triplex over a garden-floor two-bedroom rental. The proportions of the four-story brownstone appear majestic, at least in the photos, and there is every kind of elaborate […]
