A corner lot house on a tree-lined residential block in Brooklyn Heights, 149 Clinton Street is an architecturally distinguished residence recently renovated by Joseph Vance, Architects and Molly Elizabeth Interior Design. Featuring five bedrooms, five baths, outdoor space and a private two-car parking garage, it incorporates historic details with the very latest contemporary amenities.
Red brick with brownstone trim, the 19th century house features two prominent oriel windows and a wrought iron fence. Inside, the foyer opens up onto a sleek staircase; the living and dining room provides space for entertaining and a working fireplace. The roomy, light-filled kitchen has extensive cabinets and marble counters and top-of-the-line appliances.
The second floor is given over to a luxurious master bedroom suite, with a dressing room, sumptuous bath and views from the sun-catching oriel windows; the third floor has two more bedrooms and the fourth a study and family room, which could also be used as bedrooms. A garden patio leads to the two-car garage, and a roof deck offers outdoor living with space for lounging and gardening.
The renovation includes a Daikin concealed mini-split heating/cooling system offering climate-control zones in each room. Fully-integrated Lutron HomeWorks and Control4 systems provide control over temperature, lighting and audio-visual equipment. An abundance of closet and storage space, five baths, an elevator, and quality finishes throughout, such as chevron wood floors, make this property as convenient as it is beautiful.
