Welcome to 408 Clinton Street. This 4-story brownstone is located on a beautiful tree lined block in Carroll Gardens, one of Brooklyn's most desirable neighborhoods. Carroll Gardens is truly a neighborhood; it is host to a wide variety of specialty stores including a meat store, several bakeries, artisanal food stores specializing in, among other things, French and Italian provisions, and several retail stores. Steps away from 408 Clinton Street, you will find the library. Beautiful Carroll Park is three blocks away and the F/G subway lines are a short walk. At approximately 3,320 sq. feet, (16.5x50 on an 87-foot lot), this home is very spacious and deep, with generously sized rooms throughout. Step inside and be prepared to immediately fall in love! Complete with high ceilings, cedar-lined closets in every room, 2 fireplace mantles (one on the garden level and one in the third-floor bedroom), beautiful walnut hardwood floors and more this is a brownstone with tons of original detail. As the house has been meticulously maintained, all you have to is add your personal touch.
The garden level living space is warm yet welcoming; the perfect living space. It has a lovely fireplace and a custom bar that leads to a beautiful and recently renovated kitchen. The custom bar is perfect for hosting parties; the current owner hosted, until this year, several parties a year in this space including her family and neighborhood friends. From the kitchen window you will look into a peaceful backyard, the perfect quiet escape filled with endless possibilities; relax with your friends and family, enjoy a summer barbecue, or sit and relax while enjoying your coffee at any time of day. Whatever your dream is, this backyard will make it a reality.
The next floor up is the parlor floor, my personal favorite part of the house. Complete with 11-foot ceilings, a grand family room, a large dining area and a second spacious kitchen, this is where you will celebrate all your holidays, host dinner parties with friends and family, entertain, or practicing on your piano. It manages to be grand and elegant while comfortable at the same time.
Continuing up in this spacious home you will find the 3rd and 4th floors. Each floor has two bedrooms; one in the front and one in the rear with large full bathrooms in the center. The third-floor front bedroom has a beautiful fireplace mantle. The fourth-floor bedroom is currently being used an amazing library/office with built-in bookshelves.
408 Clinton Street is currently configured as a one-family home but can easily be made into a two-family home; the possibilities are endless. Take a tour and see this beautiful brownstone in the best neighborhood in Brooklyn for yourself. I promise you will fall in love!
