Here’s a floor-through garden apartment in the Cobble Hill Historic District that has garden access as well as a number of original details. Located at 247 Clinton Street, diagonally across the street from Cobble Hill Park, the building is a transitional Greek Revival and Italianate townhouse that dates to the mid-1800s.
The compact unit, accessible via a private, under-stoop entrance, has no available floor plan but appears to be composed of three rooms: a front bedroom, a rear living area and a galley kitchen on the side, with one full bath.
In the front room is the apartment’s most standout historic detail, a red-tiled decorative fireplace mantel. The large rear room has a nice amount of built-in shelving and cabinets.
The galley kitchen has a ton of counter space spread along a single wall, with shelves and cabinets above. There are more built-in shelves on the other wall.
The one bathroom has a glass enclosed tub. There’s an in-unit washer and dryer, according to the listing, but it’s not pictured. The brick-paved backyard, which has an overgrown vibe, is also accessible to an upstairs unit.
The home is a little over three blocks from the Bergen Street F and G station. There is an open house this Saturday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Fouad Rahmé and Stanley Wong of Rahmé Real Estate have the listing, which is asking $2,900 a month. What do you think?
