We frequently fantasize about how we could renovate one of the relatively affordable, family-sized units in the Clinton Hill Co-ops to make the most of its World War II-era design. So it was with great interest that we came across this renovation of one of these apartments on Sweeten. (In fact, Sweeten has done several projects in these buildings, they told us.)
The homeowners had already been living in the apartment for 11 years. The biggest changes they made were opening up the space by eliminating non-structural walls and replacing the beat-up parquet with white oak flooring. They also redid the kitchen and bath.
