The 1880 Clinton Hill townhouse once owned by the great jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis is now home to another great: Aliya LeeKong, culinary creative director and a chef at the Michelin-starred Junoon. LeeKong and her husband gobbled up the digs at 374 Washington Avenue for the full ask of $3.75 million, the Observer reports. The home is a four-story Victorian with 14-foot-high parlor level ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, and elegant polished cherry wood floors. The brokerbabble makes much of "all the detailing and grandeur associated with [Edith Wharton's] The Age of Innocence." (It's actually not that easy to debunk that assertion.) In addition to the parlor-level kitchen, dining room, and living room, the home holds four dedicated bedrooms with a study, den and a library, and three full and three half bathrooms. Additionally, there is a garden apartment with a separate entrance.
