44 Willow Place, designed by Merz Architects in 1965 for Ron and Hortense Clyne, is a striking, timeless example of Modernist architecture. Sleek and sophisticated as it was in the sixties, the combination of symmetry, minimalism and volume create open, flowing, loft-like space. The home included design workspace for Ron, an artist whose work is in the Smithsonian collection, and served as a gallery for the Clyne's collection of art. Distinctive facade elements and floor to ceiling windows are composed of Dawn Redwood. These long windows and a raised roof light on the upper floor allow for an intriguing play of light throughout as the sun travels over the house from east to west. The home is comprised of two duplex apartments, the larger of the two on the second and third floors occupied by the owners and the smaller duplex on the rear street and garden levels opens to the garden and is rented until the end of August. Mechanicals include separately metered central heat and air conditioning for each duplex. A basement with mechanicals and storage space is below the street level entrance. Parking for one car is part of the seamless design. The property has approximately 2,730 sf of living space, not including parking or basement, and measures approximately 20' x 32' on a 75' lot. Brooklyn Heights is minutes from Manhattan, with access to East River Ferries, the bikeway, and all major subways. Brooklyn Bridge Park, shopping on Atlantic Avenue and Court Street, marvelous dining throughout the borough, and a wide choice of private and public schools are all highly desirable.
