If you needed proof that the days where finding an affordable home in Brooklyn neighborhoods like Cobble Hill are long gone, here it is. A two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment within a brownstone at 222 Clinton Street is asking $1.575 million. While the price may be steep, it’s undeniable that this co-op is about as charming as they come.
The apartment occupies the parlor of the home and remixes its 19th century design with contemporary flair. The open living room features 12.5 foot ceilings, refinished hardwood floors, crown molding, and an elaborate wood-burning fireplace with a black marble mantel, white painted exposed brick, and a wall with built-in bookshelves. Three large windows fill the room with a plethora of natural light. While there isn’t a dedicated dining room space, there is more than enough space in the living room to carve out one.
The kitchen is modest in its design and has been bedecked with white appliances that match the abundance of white cabinets. There is recessed lighting and tile floors that complement the kitchen’s cool grey backsplash.
The master bedroom is equally lovely with an airy aesthetic, courtesy of its high ceilings and extra-large windows. The second bedroom would make a great children’s room or guest room. There is a washer/dryer in one of the bathrooms and five large closets along with an additional storage loft.
Maintenance will run you $950/month. The apartment also comes with a private parking garage space, which is like striking gold if you’re a car owner in Brooklyn.
