STYLE THROUGH THE YEARS Built in 1862, this three story French Second Empire style townhouse sits resolutely on the southwest corner of Gates and Waverly. Topped with a mansard roof and finished with a wraparound garden by Brook Landscaping, this five bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse offers all the space, grace, style and parking you want in Prime, Historic Clinton Hill. Enter into the long entry hall and unwind. To the right is the living room with ample space to stretch out, fireplace and custom built-in seating and record storage. The living room has east and north exposures and connects with the open kitchen and dining room. With enough space to seat 10, the center stage of culinary delight is to the left, past the working center island with bar stools and more than enough space to have helpers. Stove is Viking. Fridge is Sub-zero. The second floor is the full floor primary suite with garden facing bedroom, front den/TV room/adult hang out, pass through closet, dressing room and full bath with soaking tub and shower. The third floor offers birds eye views of the neighborhood from three exposures. The two main bedrooms both have two exposures and plenty of storage. The study faces east and has the most majestic color walls we've seen in years. An abundance of storage in this room counters the eye candy. The shared bath with west facing window has a built in infrared sauna, bath and shower. The bright basement has a rec room for craft and creativity while the other side of the floor holds surf and skateboards and bikes, a whole house water filtration system, laundry, a half bath and door to the backyard and driveway. The backyard offers parking and a garden bed to engage your green thumb. The backyard's generous parking spot has been used as an entertaining space or a driveway with steps to the lower level entry. Near all the amenities on Greene, Dekalb and Fulton Aves, as well as being a few blocks from Ft Greene Park and a few more from Prospect Park, this side of Clinton Hill allows for easy access to all by all modes of transportation. Clinton/Washington station is 1. 5 blocks away. Ask us about our favorite restaurants and shops!
