About this Property
So many delights await you in this single-family townhouse in the heart of Historic Clinton Hill. This utterly charming 5 bedroom, 3 bath brick house, part of a row of neo-Federal style homes designed in 1922, boasts an extra deep lot (120’!) with tons of private outdoor spaces, including a backyard and a top floor deck. The current owners have retained and accented all the wonderful details that make you feel that you’ve happily come home. The main floor embraces open plan living with light spilling into every room. Enter through the foyer to the living room with a working wood-burning fireplace, parquet floors and original lead glass windows looking out over the landscaped front garden. You’ll enjoy relaxing here. The extra-large formal dining room has room for a massive farmhouse table – and is perfect for gracious entertaining. It has a windowed door leading to the side porch and extra deep backyard. Love to cook? This kitchen is a delight! Lovingly renovated, it has a Viking stove with a full vented hood and lots of custom cabinetry. The countertops and the deep farmhouse sink are custom Fireslate--a poured composite cement. There are two extra-large windows bringing light in: one looks out over the covered back porch and extra deep yard and a large side window brings in light over the marble pastry counter. An extra-large side by side Kitchenaid refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and the solid cherry floor add to the joys of cooking here. The yard is amazing and makes entertaining on a large scale a breeze. The extra deep yard is laid out as 3 open-plan spaces and is beautifully landscaped, including hand-salvaged Belgian blue stone slate pavers. The 3-season covered porch is perfect for outdoor dining on a rainy day. There’s lounging space, grilling space (with a dedicated fuel line) and another seating area at the rear of the yard that comes with a massive, custom built table and bench seating for picnics and projects. There's plenty of room for everyone here! Upstairs, you’ll find 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths as well as a private top floor deck with a birdseye views of the neighborhood rooftops and houses. The front 2 bedrooms are full house width and have double windows bringing in Southern light. The two main back bedrooms are also spacious. The owner uses the extra bedroom as a dedicated artist’s studio. Both baths have cast iron tubs and retain the beauty of yesteryear. The finished basement has a large center rec room, laundry, and houses well-maintained mechanicals. 445 Washington sits in the very heart of historic Clinton Hill. Located between Gates and Greene Avenues, you’re directly across from a beautiful community garden and the Greene Playground. The A, C and G trains are 2 blocks away and it’s a short distance to BAM, the Apple Store, Barclays Center and Fort Greene Park with its year-round Saturday Greenmarket. You can easily access Trader Joe’s or, further down Washington, Wegman’s and the shops at the Brooklyn Navy Yard as well as top-notch restaurants throughout the area. The owners tell us that some of their most treasured moments here have been the “cooperative front stoop socializing” that has made this a very special location.
