My Notes

UNDER CONTRACT. Stately five story Second Empire brownstone in Clinton Hill delivers good bones matched with modern mechanicals. Circa 1885, this elegant townhouse was once home to a founder of what became the Carter's Ink Company, at one time the largest ink manufacturer in the world. Currently configured as an upper quadruplex plus high-income garden rental, this home offers more than enough room to spread out whatever your needs may be. It is located steps from transportation with easy access to BAM, the Barclays Center, Fort Greene Park and the many local shops and restaurants in this former hidden gem now destination neighborhood. The extra deep lot provides a sizeable backyard adorned by morning glories, hydrangeas and azaleas creating a perfect backdrop for warm weather entertaining and dining al fresco. The parlor floor's open plan provides ample living and dining space offset by a cook's kitchen, convenient powder room, and sliding doors to a large deck. Upstairs a master suite with steam shower and Jacuzzi tub are complemented by five additional bedrooms, two more baths, a laundry room and a study. No less impressive is the garden level one bedroom duplex rental with high-end Carrara marble kitchen, bath and a half, laundry and garden access. All the building's systems have been upgraded with working fireplaces and central air throughout as well as separately zoned heating. In short, this house is in turnkey condition awaiting only your personal touches.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Clinton Hill home values will rise 7.7% next year, compared to a 2.9% rise for New York as a whole. Among New York homes, this home is valued 397.2% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 78.9% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Clinton Hill, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 527.1% higher than in New York, and 49.6% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Clinton Hill home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York.
