Here’s a condo with uncommon grandeur and a distinctive address. It occupies the parlor and garden floors of an 1882 Neo Grec mansion on Clinton Hill’s Mansion Row, at 313 Clinton Avenue, written up here as a Building of the Day.
The house is notable for reasons beyond its architectural splendor: for over two decades it’s been the site of Halloween 313, a beloved neighborhood extravaganza that started as a small celebration in the front yard put on by owner Janna Kennedy-Hyten, aka the “Halloween Lady.” A longtime resident, she told Bklyner that she is looking to move to Bed Stuy or upstate. “I just cannot afford to stay,” she said.
The house measures 22 by 70, so there’s no shortage of space here — 2,860 square feet, according to the listing. The living space is on the parlor floor, which is a stunner, with towering ceilings, a large mirrored mantel, curved bay windows, parquet floors and pocket doors.
In the rear is an attractive “Euro-inspired” kitchen with marble counters, a slate mantel, a pantry and a glass French doors leading to a deck.
There’s internal spiral staircase tucked away in a back hall. Below are three bedrooms, two full baths, an office space and a closeted washer/dryer, as well as exclusive access to a landscaped garden.
The ask for the unit, listed by Roslyn Heubener of Corcoran, is $2.65 million; the owner will pay a hefty $2,053 in taxes and common charges on top of the mortgage. Worth it?
