This apartment in an 1840s row house Cobble Hill offers two floors of space as well as a stylish reno. Just a block away from the shops and amenities of Court Street, 314 Clinton Street is located in the Cobble Hill Historic District.
The Greek Revival brick row house dates to circa 1841-1842 and was expanded in the 1880s, according to the designation report. The historic tax photo shows the Neo-Grec style cornice and door surround as well as the two-story extension on Kane Street that were added at the time. The alterations were done when it served as the residence of prominent citizen Dr. John Byrne. The two-story extension apparently served as the doctor’s office.
The five-unit co-op building now sports a brownstone Greek Revival door surround, an alteration made more recently.
The duplex unit has an open plan living room and kitchen along with a half bath on the parlor floor. On the garden level below are two bedrooms, an office space and a full bath with laundry. The space got a reno by the architect owner after it was last sold in 2016.
The first floor has the original high ceilings, tall windows and plaster crown molding, along with a wood burning fireplace and floors lightened up in the renovation. The open kitchen has blue Shaker-style cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash and the expected high-end appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The lightened floors continue down into the garden level, where there is a built-in desk in the hallway, across from one of the five closets in the apartment. The full bath is encased in white subway tile and has a tub, walk-in shower, white fixtures and a stacked washer/dryer.
The unit sold for $1.375 million back in 2016. It’s now listed for $1.6 million with Mark Jovanovic and Sarah Riegle of Compass. What do you think?
