The home needs work but there’s plenty of potential


In Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill neighborhood, a historic carriage house, on a landmarked block, has hit the market for $3.4 million. The three-level home, located at 314 Waverly Avenue, could use a modern makeover, but there’s plenty to work with.

According to the listing description, the home was constructed around 1914 and was owned for many years by a pioneering surgeon and bacteriologist named Dr. James Peter Warbasse. In its current configuration, there are three bedrooms and two bathroom that span across nearly 3,000 square feet of space, along with an expansive garage that can accommodate as many as four cars. Many of the home’s original details have been preserved, including an elaborate living room fireplace with a brick mantle, along with some built-ins.

The first level is where you’ll find the garage, along with a home office and access to the backyard. The second level gives way to the living room, dining room, windowed kitchen, and two bedrooms. There is a basement with a second living room and another kitchen, as well as a bedroom, full bathroom, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Outdoor space is plentiful here and includes a balcony, along with a backyard that measures more than 4,500 square feet.
