Property Description for 245 Washington Ave

Presenting 245 Washington Avenue, a rare and enchanting 200' double lot compound nestled in the heart of historic Clinton Hill. This property is comprised of a rambling 20' wide, 5000sqft+ five-story, four-unit townhouse on Washington Avenue, an incredible 120' deep private garden, and direct rear access to a one story, 20' wide carriage house with curb cut.

The Carriage House looks onto the Pratt Institute Sculpture Park and its 25-acre landscaped grounds via Hall Street. The front house boasts a stately brownstone fa ade, currently set up as a lower 3BR duplex with private garden and carriage house plus three 1-2BR income producing rentals upstairs. The property can be reconfigured into a grand single family home, several high value condos or anything in-between. Significant additional buildable square footage is available pending LPC approval and FAR review.

The front house features high ceilings, and large windows, and far reaching views of the Manhattan skyline from its top floor and roof. Original details remain, including several marble fireplace mantles with tile work, inlaid parquet flooring, decorative plaster, woodwork, window casements and shutters.

The carriage house is currently used for parking two cars, although it would be an easy transformation into an art studio, home office or hybrid living space. It features 12' high ceilings, and discreet access to the deep rear garden and kitchen/dining level of the main house.

Washington Avenue is one of the few historic mansion blocks of brownstone Brooklyn, featuring a deep sidewalk promenade and an exceptional tree canopy. Public transportation is convenient and you are minutes from Fort Greene Park, BAM, Pratt Institute, and the lovely cafes, restaurants and shopping along Dekalb Avenue.

This distinguished property stands tall among its neighbors, offering both grandeur and endless possibilities for its next owner. Private showings available.

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.
