Standout Clinton Hill Victorian and Three More to See This Weekend, Starting at $800K


    This week we have four quaint 19th century townhouses scattered from Gowanus to Bed Stuy, including one standout Clinton Hill home with a striking facade. Two of the homes require work, and two are recently renovated.

    First up, in the Clinton Hill Historic District, a Romanesque Revival corner property built in 1892 in need of work. The three-family is currently configured as a lower duplex topped by two two-bedroom apartments. The home’s striking facade contains band courses, terra-cotta enframements, heavy cornice, dog-leg stoop, Roman brick and projecting arched bay windows surrounded by an arcade. Interior details include moldings, shutters, woodwork and exposed brick. The backyard is lush, and the property is 4.5 blocks from the Clinton-Washington Avenues G station.

    Next, in Gowanus, we have a nicely renovated brick townhouse that dates from the mid-19th century and was built in the Greek Revival-Italianate style. The three-story with finished basement has a number of cushy new features including recessed LED lighting, built-in sound system, central air, individually controlled radiators, a heated towel rack in the ensuite master bath, and insulation. The marble mantel and staircase appear to be original. There’s maple-wood flooring throughout, an eat-in kitchen, a skylight made from a Bilco door, and a landscaped backyard with stone and tile patios. The property is two blocks from the Carroll Street F, G station.

    In Bed Stuy is a brick three-story, three-family in rental condition. The facade has a cornice and off-center top floor windows, a front door with awning sandwiched by columns and a decorative arch above the two parlor level windows. Inside, original details include moldings and four mantels. There is quite a diversity of color in the pictured bathroom tile and kitchen cabinetry. Only the garden apartment has backyard access, and it has a tenant through May 2019. The property is 6.5 blocks from the Ralph Avenue A, C station.

    Last, up, in Crown Heights, this 19th century brick townhouse has been gutted and renovated and turned into a condo. Unfortunately, the job included replacing the original well-preserved portico and painting the brick, but the exterior still retains plenty of curb appeal. Inside, the pocket-size one-family has been completely modernized and now has three bedrooms, one bath and exposed brick. The home sold with four others on the block for $1.7 million in 2016. It’s close to Weeksville Heritage Center and four blocks from the Ralph Avenue A, C station.
