Here is an opportunity to own Clinton Hill’s grandest carriage house property, and a chance to realize your vision for an expansive compound with parking in the heart of Brownstone Brooklyn. 361 Waverly Avenue sits on a massive lot that sprawls 50 feet wide and over 105 feet deep, nestled in the middle of a quiet, low-traffic, landmarked block. Pending approvals from the NYC Landmarks Commission, there’s the potential to add significant square footage to this historic home.

Dr. James Peter Warbasse, a pioneering surgeon and bacteriologist who served during the Spanish American War, lived for many years in the mansion at 384 Washington Avenue. The Warbasses are said to have thrown many grand parties in the sprawling backyard behind the mansion, which is now the backyard of 361 Waverly Avenue. In 1914 Dr. Warbasse commissioned architect Adam Fischer to build an elegant three-level carriage house on the Waverly Avenue side of his property.

Fischer designed this beautiful building with an array of architectural details. The walls are clad in multi-hued brick, laid in Flemish bond with burnt headers. The façade is crowned by a bracketed pent roof over the garage and entry on the first floor and a side-gable roof with gable fronts featuring Eastlake-style timbering on the second floor. The main entry is distinguished by a wood-and-glass door under a gable-front portico that flows into the pent roof, while the garage door features a wood-paneled design with a brick surround accentuated by cast-stone trim. The windows throughout are framed with sailor-laid brick sills and soldier-laid brick lintels. Additional ornamental brickwork can be found along the roofline, which features two rows of checkerboard brick under brick corbelling.

Inside there’s a 36 ft x 20 ft garage with room for three or four cars, a garden apartment, and an elegant top floor apartment full of original details. The top floor is graced with a balcony that provides a majestic view of the sprawling backyard. Measuring over 4,500 square feet, this stunning park-like space is a wonderfully tranquil oasis from the bustle of City life. It really must be experienced to be believed.

While living at 361 Waverly Avenue may feel like being in the country, the best of Clinton Hill’s shopping, restaurants, and other amenities are all close by, including Romans, Aita, Olea, Emily, Walters, and the Finch, to name a few. The Brooklyn Flea and the Greenmarket at the iconic Fort Greene Park are a short stroll away. The Barclay’s Center, LIRR, and all the subways at Atlantic Terminal (2,3,4,5,B,D,N,R & Q) are close by, and the C and G trains are even closer for a quick commute to Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn.

Come see this beautiful historic gem and make it your own!

Clinton Hill
Clinton Hill real estate
With Prospect Heights, Bed Stuy, Williamsburg and Fort Greene as neighbors, Clinton Hill is ideally situated in the heart of Brooklyn. This charming historic neighborhood is home to the internationally renowned Pratt Institute and St. Joseph's College. Once planned as a country retreat from New York, it retains a relaxed ambiance down its tree-lined side streets, while still giving you easy access to the city through the A, C, and G lines and the BQE. In recent years new bars and restaurants have opened in this ethnically diverse neighborhood, giving it an increasingly upscale feel.
