167 Clinton Street #2, a seven-room, three-bedroom co-op in a townhouse constructed in 1849, spans the entire floor of a historic townhouse, with its Parlor floor and carriage house combined into a sprawling and deep 1,800-square-foot home. The apartment’s interiors are designed by Brooklyn-based interior staging firm Hovey Design, showcasing the original townhouse’s unique appeal throughout the unit.

As soon as you enter, the high-ceilinged grand entertaining spaces with two original working fireplaces are sure to impress. The formal Parlor room features double French doors and new double-hung windows that allow Southwestern light to flood the room. The living and dining area is open-concept and roomy, with casement windows framing leafy Southern views, tasteful built-ins, and decorative moldings adding elegance.

The spacious windowed kitchen forms the heart of the home and is an ideal location for a showpiece chef’s kitchen with a central island to entertain family and friends. A laundry area with a vented Washer/Dryer is nearby. A long hallway connects the private three-bedroom wing with bright exposures overlooking private townhouse gardens and a sizable primary bedroom with an en-suite windowed bath and north/south windows for cross-breezes.

This brick and brownstone townhouse was constructed in 1849 at the end of the Greek Revival period when Brooklyn Heights was growing into a desirable, leafy enclave of luxurious mansions and distinguished cooperatives. This former single-family mansion has been transformed into a fiscally-sound boutique co-op of four full-floor homes with no underlying mortgage, no flip tax, and exceptionally low maintenance. In addition to ample in-unit storage, ample common storage is in the basement. It is also pet-friendly with an on-call resident manager.

Located near seven train lines, schools, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Promenade, and local favorites such as Colonie, Henry Public, Hibino, and Sahadi’s, this residence is at the center of everything that Brooklyn has to offer.
