House of the Day: Elegant Four-Story Brownstone in Carroll Gardens

by

Our point of focus today is a four-story brownstone at 371 Clinton Street, set up as a one-family home. In pristine shape, it’s ready to move into, for the buyer who can swing the ask of $4,495,000.

Though not awash in detail, it’s got some nice features — a wood burning fireplace with a marble mantel, moldings, original hardwood floors, wooden shutters, all in fine condition.

At 16 feet wide it’s narrow, but with the one-family setup there’s no shortage of space. The top two floors hold two bedrooms apiece, with generous walk-in closets on each floor. (Generous enough that the top one could be used as a fifth bedroom or an office.)

The kitchen, at the rear of the parlor floor, is a showpiece, with acres of white lacquered cabinets, a countertop of Brazilian black slate and high-end appliances: a Bertazzoni range and a Sub-Zero fridge.

On the garden level is an office and a den with a wall of built-in shelves and cabinets. There’s a distinctive white wainscot ceiling and floors lacquered in white. Hypothetically you could turn this into a rental, but it’d take a fair amount of work and the triplex above would be left without garden access. (Unless you opened up that kitchen and created a deck back there, which  would be nice, but no small project.)

The house, listed by Leslie Marshall and James Cornell of Corcoran, has central air conditioning, new mechanicals, and upgraded electrical and plumbing.

Think the asking price is on target? How do you like the place?
