If you’ve always envied the magical back gardens of brownstone Brooklyn neighborhoods like Cobble Hill, here’s a chance to enjoy your own–without having to buy a brownstone. This two-bedroom co-op at 193 Clinton Street, asking $2,000,000, spans the lower levels of a pretty townhouse. In addition to the outdoor oasis, there’s bonus space on the lower level–and a laundry room.
This 23-foot-wide co-op is tucked into the lowest two levels of a historic home on a tree-lined brownstone block. The recently renovated space includes two bedrooms, two baths, a lower bonus space, and laundry room, plus storage, enhanced by hardwood floors, new windows, and central A/C.
A private entry foyer opens into the home’s main level, where you’ll find a large living and dining area highlighted by a working fireplace. Adjacent is a spacious kitchen with a casual dining peninsula, quartz countertops, and custom millwork.
The primary bedroom is large enough to offer a sitting/office area. The best part of this king-sized retreat is a sliding glass panel that opens onto the lovely landscaped back patio and garden.
This private city oasis features multi-level bluestone pavers surrounded by planting areas, perfect for entertaining and gardening. A deck with custom built-in benches sits just above the patio.
The co-op’s second bedroom overlooks the garden. There are two renovated full baths on this level as well.
On the home’s lower level, a finished basement recreation space includes an arched nook and space for a den, guest room, playroom, or office. Adjacent is a large laundry room with an LG washer and dryer. Also found here is a large storage area, and there is additional storage space in the building, directly accessible from this private lower level.
The duplex sits within a restored Italianate brownstone with a landmarked façade, complete with a classic stoop and heavy ironwork railings. The co-op maintenance fee includes electricity, gas, and heat.
