Description

The elegance and grandeur of this unique home are rarely found, even amongst some of Brooklyn's finest brownstones. One of twelve French Second Empire style homes built between 1868 and 1871 on a prime Fort Greene block, 215 Clermont Avenue is simply a glorious house. The owner's duplex is stunning, as it has been fully renovated and reconfigured while maintaining some of the most remarkable details of the building's original, ornate architecture.

The massive parlor floor of the 2,200 square foot duplex has twelve foot ceilings, two sets of double doors and manages to take many of the classic characteristics of this era to another level, while also functioning as a modern home. Stunning original details of the living room include restored inlaid floors, a marble fireplace mantle, wooden window shutters, crown and decorative plaster moldings and a detailed tin ceiling. Original sliding doors lead to the grand dining room which features a beautiful piece of the house's original Victorian era architecture repurposed as an ultra cool bar.

The back of the parlor floor has an extension and has been revamped with floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors, allowing in the eastern light and housing the modern kitchen. Fully equipped with high-end appliances, plenty of cabinetry and a functional layout, this chef's kitchen also has a breakfast bar overlooking the lovely back garden. The back garden provides a natural and private escape from the city.

With nearly 1,000 square feet of landscaped space, there are two sitting areas, gorgeous greenery, an irrigation system and a full-sized grill. The luxurious master suite of the garden floor truly allows for a moment of respite with its ensuite bathroom with radiant floor heating, an elegant dressing/lounge area with customized closets and windowed doors leading directly to the garden. The garden floor also has a spacious second bedroom, a separate built-in desk area, laundry and a mudroom that doubles as a pet spa and also exits directly to the back garden.

The clean and functional basement has a ceiling height of 6'8', multiple storage/work rooms and a customized, temperature controlled wine room. The top three floors of this incredible house have renovated and highly desired full floor, free market rentals. One can keep this home laid out as is or opt to combine one or more floors with the duplex. There are multiple options for how to use 215 Clermont Avenue.

For the right buyer, this home can be a perfect live/work oasis in the city, while also being income-producing. VIDEO AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
