This Civil War era white frame home is as much Vermont as it is Brooklyn. Set back from lush Clinton Ave with a garden complete with front porch sits this 25-foot wide, 2 family, 4-story home. Gracious in proportion, lovingly restored & appropriately updated. Renovated baths on every floor, chef's kitchen with stainless appliances, flexible floor plan & back garden complete with deck and century old grape vines. Clinton Hill retains one of New York's largest concentrations of intact row houses from the post-Civil War period. The earliest surviving houses in the Clinton Hill Historic District date from the 1840. This is one of the few neighborhoods in New York City that developed and redeveloped as an affluent area. Clinton Avenue, which was developed as a street for very wealthy residents, still retains all of its ambience & remains one of the few grand boulevards in the United States to survive relatively intact. Because of the outstanding quality of its architecture and the variety of building types and styles, Clinton Hill has a distinctive character & is an outstanding historic district within the City of New York. In 1967 when Patti Smith & Robert Mapplethorpe 1st met, they planted their roots & became part of the bohemian chic that we now call Clinton Hill/Fort Greene. The neighborhoods renaissance has been ongoing with outstanding architecture; Zagat rated restaurants, fab shopping and a dominant artist's & musicians presence.
