With a cornucopia of housing options — from 19th-Century carriage houses to the latest luxury loft conversions — there’s more to Clinton Hill than just the landmarked brownstones for which the neighborhood is known. House hunters might find a classic Clinton Hill three-family house renovated into a single-family 4,000-square-foot living space, or consider a duplex with a garden apartment. Plenty of one- and two-bedroom apartments are also available in Clinton Hill, as well as spectacular floor-throughs with the latest appliances. Be it a Romanesque mansion, a Victorian row house or a pre-Civil War frame house —whether you’re seeking a roof deck or a landscaped yard — all may be found here.
