Clinton Hill One-Bedroom With Mantel, Private Garden Asks $2,500 a Month


Located on a brownstone-filled block in the Clinton Hill Historic District, this one-bedroom apartment has some original details and the bonus of a private backyard.

It’s on the garden level of 44 Clifton Place, one of a pair of Second Empire style row houses on a block mostly filled with Italianate and Neo-Grec style brownstones. Most of the block was developed in the 1870s and 44 Clifton Place was in place by circa 1876.

The floor-through apartment is located in what would have been the kitchen and dining level of the house. The living room, originally the dining room, has wood floors, moldings and a marble mantel. The kitchen looks to be in fine shape, with wood floors and cabinets and room for a small table.

The wood floors continue into the windowed bedroom, which appears to face the backyard. The listing mentions “ample closets” but without a floor plan it is a bit difficult to judge. What certainly does appear to be sizable is the colorful circa 1970s tiled bathroom, with dual sinks, a mirrored wall and a rather quirky tiled step up into the tub. The listing notes that utilities include a washer/dryer but it is unclear if it is in the unit or in the building.

Out back is a garden, which offers some private fresh-air space and perhaps some opportunity for a tenant with a green thumb. There’s a stone pathway, planting beds and a bit of shrubbery.

It’s listed by Andrea Yarrington of Corcoran and is asking $2,500 a month. What do you think?
