This brownstone triplex at 304 Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill is the perfect rental for an avid cook with deep pockets.
The circa 1873 Italianate brownstone last sold in 2009 and clearly underwent a significant renovation with culinary creation in mind. The rear of the parlor floor has been transformed into a fantasy kitchen.
The owner installed not one but two Miele ovens and, perhaps for the luxury of never having to put away a dish, added two Bosch dishwashers. The ovens are complimented by a six-burner Wolf range.
The kitchen also features a built-in deep fryer and steamer, two sinks (one on the counter and one on the island), and a garbage disposal. A sliding library ladder gives access to upper cabinets. All the waste generated from cooking six-course meals will be easily crushed by the home’s built-in trash compactor.
Even the landscaped garden, accessed via a deck off the kitchen and shared with other tenants, is equipped with the Rolls Royce of grills — a Big Green Egg.
The rest of the four-bedroom, 1.5 bath spread has numerous classic elements one would expect of a brownstone, from the high arched doorways to a marble mantel.
There’s an entry with original built-in hall tree and inlaid floor, according to the listing, although it’s not pictured.
The 24-foot-long parlor is big enough for living room seating as well as a dining area. The ceiling has a medallion and detailed plaster work. Crown molding, the aforementioned marble fireplace, parquet floors with inlaid borders and other details abound.
The next floor up includes two bedrooms, a full bath and a laundry room. And above that is another bedroom and a large home office or studio space with skylights.
The house is located on busy Lafayette Avenue, near many of Clinton Hill’s amenities — Choice Market is on the corner. It’s a short walk to the Clinton-Washington Avenue G train and not much further to the C on Fulton Street.
The rental is offered by Teka Klopfenstein of Corcoran for $8,450 a month. What do you think?
