A petite one-bedroom in a Montrose Morris-designed townhouse in Clinton Hill is for rent, and it comes with all the bells and whistles you might expect in a co-op — for a relatively modest uptick in price. It’s located at 184 Clinton Avenue in a Queen Anne-style building with a stone facade, double-columned porch and high gable, all designed to look like part of a mansion that includes the neighboring turreted townhouse.
The unit appears to be in the rear of the second floor of the four-story, 10-unit co-op. The three-room apartment has an open living-dining-kitchen area in one polygonal-shaped room and windows on three sides for an airy feel.
It also has high ceilings, hardwood floors, a fancy up-to-date kitchen, and a renovated bathroom with vintage-style features. An in-unit washer/dryer and access to a shared garden/courtyard in the back round out its rare endowments.
The open living/dining room/kitchen has nearly 235 square feet to stretch out in, and gets light from windows on opposite walls as well as the bedroom beyond. The kitchen has a citified farmhouse look with white Shaker-style cabinetry, glass cabinets, butcher block counter, farmhouse sink and exposed brick painted white. It has a dishwasher and white Viking range.
A pocket door leads to the bedroom, which fits a queen-size bed and has three windows on two exposures. Off to the side is a small windowed room that could serve as a closet or office.
The bathroom is fitted with a white subway tile wainscot topped with a gold tile border. The bathtub, toilet and vanity are white. The floors are tiled in small white squares, and the brass shower curtain and antique ceiling lamp give the room a stylish flourish.
A large walk-in closet near the entrance holds the washer/dryer with some room for coats and brooms.
184 Clinton Avenue was built in 1892, one of a pair of attached Queen Anne houses designed by Montrose Morris and located just outside the Clinton Hill Historic District. Brownstoner columnist Suzanne Spellen wrote about the house in 2010, noting that two significant mansions across the street became the dust beneath the Clinton Hill Apartments.
We wrote about a similar unit in the building listed as a co-op in 2017.
