Here’s a four-story Clinton Hill townhouse that’s been given a luxe makeover that was the subject of an Insider writeup last year. An 1891 Romanesque/neo-Renaissance number with a distinctive limestone and brick facade, it’s at 116 Willoughby Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District.
The top-to-bottom renovation matches modern updates with the house’s original details. Those include mahogany door and window casings, wainscoting in the stairway, pocket doors, stained glass and mirrored mantels.
There’s even one of the latter in the master bath, a looker of a bathroom that includes a freestanding oval tub by the window, a marble-tiled shower and a custom vanity made from the house’s original floors, with dual sinks and a poured concrete countertop.
The house is being used as a single family, though the bottom floor is set up as a separate suite with a kitchen, so it’d be readily pressed into service as a rental.
The top floor holds three bedroom and a skylit “bonus room,” the second floor holds a master suite with a walk-through dressing room in addition to the bathroom described above.
The ground floor’s got a living room and a fine figure of a kitchen, with custom walnut cabinetry, white marble countertops, a backsplash of original brick, a wine fridge, and a pair of broad steel and glass doors leading out to the rear deck.
Listed by Brian Lewis and Tamara Abir of Halstead, the house is asking $3.15 million. How do you like what they’ve done with it?
