Property Description

Built in 1901 and part of a row of historic townhomes, 116 Willoughby stands tall wrapped in limestone and brick. Currently used as a single-family, this four-story home could transition back to an owner's triplex and income-producing one-bedroom on the garden level. Immediately as you enter through the front door, you will notice the attention and care that was given to preserving the rich historic details- from the original woodworking in the vestibule and fireplaces to the beautiful stained glass. Character and charm are paired with artful renovations for the perfect modern touch. The impressive parlor floor has soaring 10'4” ceilings and is a prime place to host, featuring a custom bar, cozy living room with an original fireplace, and dining area. Head back through the renovated open chef's kitchen to the oversized black steel and glass doors which lead out to the upper deck and garden below. One floor up, the entire third floor is now completely dedicated to the primary suite. The spacious bedroom has a separate sitting area, and a custom-built-out dressing room leads to the zen retreat that is the primary bathroom. This beautifully designed space features a Carrara marble steam shower, freestanding soaking tub, and a custom double vanity designed using the home's original floorboards. The fourth floor has three more bedrooms and a full bathroom. A separate bonus room would be perfect for an office, playroom, or gym. Downstairs, the garden level has its own kitchen and full bathroom and can be used as a guest suite, media room, or a separate income-producing one-bedroom apartment with separate access. The cellar houses the new washer and dryer and provides abundant storage. This home is rich in history. It has been lovingly preserved and meticulously renovated.

Clinton Hill | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Tucked behind the Brooklyn Navy Yard in central Brooklyn is the quiet residential neighborhood of Clinton Hill. Once a strictly working-class neighborhood, Clinton Hill has become known for its elegant brownstones and stately mansions that were built as Manhattanites crossed the East River in the 1920s in search of the supposed health benefits that came from living “on the hill,” which has an elevation of 95 feet. Now you will also find newer luxury apartment and condo buildings interspersed throughout the neighborhood.

The Pratt Institute and St. Joseph College give the area a certain energy that comes from having a college in your town, while it’s leafy streets, some with their original cobblestones, and slower pace attract young families. Millennials and professionals are flocking to Clinton Hill in search of a reasonably priced neighborhood that offers both nightlife and an easy commute to Manhattan.
