Renovated Three-Bedroom Condo in Clinton Hill’s Historic John Arbuckle House Asks $1.45 Million

by
2

Here’s a three-bedroom, two-bath condo that sits on the garden level of the John Arbuckle House, an 1888 Romanesque Revival mansion built for the coffee baron by the storied Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris. Now a nine-unit condo building, it’s at 315 Clinton Avenue, on a manse-lined stretch in the Clinton Hill Historic District.

The unit was renovated at some point and fails to match the splendor of the building’s exterior. But it’s still an attractive space that’s in good shape and well laid out, with wide-plank floors and a nicely renovated kitchen and baths.

It sits partly below grade, which doesn’t do much for light or views, especially in the rear bedroom, which has only half-windows sitting high on the wall. On the plus side, there are some groovy and elaborate wrought-iron window guards to look at.

The kitchen is on the small side, but it opens to the living room, over a stone-topped counter that accommodates a pair of stools. The living room, on the other hand, is decently sized, and there’s a second family room among the bedrooms with a wall of built-in shelving (though no window).

There’s shared outdoor space, a private entrance and a new split air conditioning system. Basement storage and a laundry room are also included.

Listed by Deborah Rieders and Sarah Shuken of Corcoran, the unit wants $1.45 million. Common charges and taxes will add $1,293 to the monthly nut. Worth it?
