A fairly straightforward condo in a 74-unit residential building in Fort Greene that opened in 2009, this two-bedroom, two-bath modern unit has the advantage of a juliet balcony outside the combined living-dining room and open kitchen, and ample windows in every room except the second bathroom. Notably, it comes with a deeded parking space.
The building is 181 Clermont Avenue, aka Clermont Greene, designed by well-established multi-family housing specialist Marvin Meltzer of Meltzer/Mandl Architects—especially noted for their office-to-condo conversions. We previously featured a smaller unit in the complex about four years ago. It’s two color-blocked six-story boxes supported by a steel structure, covered with charcoal masonry on the ground-level, with 37 parking spaces tucked below.
This one has two decently sized bedrooms with walk-in closets, a kitchen with steel appliances and gray Caesarstone countertops, not particularly high-design but nice enough wood-finish cabinets, floors with a mishmash of light and dark wood, and tan tiles in the bathroom pictured here.
Just over 1,000 square feet, unit 311 sold in 2012 for $692,000, but now is asking $1,195,000, which comes in at a bit more than $1,000 a square foot. A brand new condo would be quite a bit more per square foot, and a townhouse would definitely be more altogether.
With taxes of $50 and common charges of $953, the big drawback might be the expiration of the tax abatement in 2025, not too long away. Kellee Buhler of Compass is handling the listing. A chance to live in brownstone Brooklyn with a parking space for a relatively affordable price?
