This Neo-Grec Clinton Hill brownstone at 562 Washington Avenue is slim at 18 feet, but with five stories and a large two-story extension at the rear it offers a lot of square footage.
It’s set up with duplexes on the top and bottom, with a floor-through unit in between. So an owner could live in one of the duplexes and pull some decent rental income to offset the mortgage.
If you took the bottom one you’d have a two- or three-bedroom unit, depending on how you count. The listing, from Lee Solomon and Brian Lehner at Brown Harris Stevens, calls it a three-bedroom, though one of the bedrooms is tiny, with only one small window, and is labeled a “sitting room” on the floor plan.
The top duplex is a legit three-bedroom, and the master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an en suite marble bath with double sinks and a jacuzzi tub. That one offers no outdoor space though. (The middle apartment has a deck off the rear, which sits atop the extension.)
The house appears to have been fully renovated, and looks in fine shape. Many original details on the parlor floor were left intact, and there are some nice ones: massive burled wood doors, carved wooden door and window frames, inlaid parquet floors, a pair of mantels, ceiling medallions and moldings, pocket doors.
Each apartment has central air and its own heating system (forced air, presumably). And the house is “completely wired within for all up-to-date data networking functionality.”
Sited between Atlantic Avenue and Fulton Street, this isn’t Clinton Hill’s most bucolic block. On the plus side, it’s not far to the C at Clinton-Washington.
