Occupying the upper two levels of an 1850s Italianate townhouse, this two-bedroom duplex has been recently renovated with a designer's eye that suits the house's graceful facade. The owner, Deutsche Bank managing director Gary Hattem, is a known green building booster, so it stands to reason that this place was renovated with an eye to the environment (though no mention is made in the brokerbabble). The price is far from philanthropic, at $4,300 per month, for two bedrooms and one bath in this Clinton Hill-meets-Fort Greene location, but the quality of the renovation, a gracious floor plan, and a private office add to the desirability.
