Clinton Hill has magnificent historic mansions; here is one that is one-of-a-kind and elegant inside and out. This 22 ft wide landmarked corner-property with a MODERN PARKING GARAGE was built in 1901. Designed by architect Montrose W. Morris in 1889, this three-story round tower with a conical roof is reminiscent of a romantic castle and is part of a trio of exceptional American Romanesque Revival style rows in Brooklyn.
Spacious and versatile with 7 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 kitchens, a deck, a courtyard and a 357 sq. foot modern garage, the TWO-FAMILY MANSION is currently configured as a six-bedroom triplex over a one bedroom apartment. The front rooms, starting from the parlor floor and extending up to the third floor, exhibit elegance with the curved wall design that leads to a captivating dome-likeceiling on the highest level.
The architectural elements and preserved original features make this property a true gem. The combination of built-in bookshelves, pocket doors, wood coffered ceilings, 8 wood-burning fireplaces, stained glass windows, a skylight, carved wood craftsmanship throughout and parquet floors adds exceptional character and grandeur to the interior spaces. This magnificent home has served as a filming location for scenes in several movies and TV shows including “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Brown Sugar.”
Additionally, the garden floor apartment features a courtyard. The large garage is an amazing bonus for any Brooklyn home.
