The white house on Clinton Avenue otherwise known as Clinton Hill’s Halloween house is now on the market for $2.65 million. For over 20 years, the first two floors of this four-story house have been home to costume maker and artist Janna Kennedy Hyten. To most people in Clinton Hill, Hyten is known as the “Halloween Lady of Clinton Hill,” for the elaborate Halloween productions she puts on at her house every year; last year marked the last production of a show that’s organized entirely by volunteers.
Now on to the house itself. The space for sale comprises the garden and parlor floors of house and measures 2,860 square feet. The parlor floor features over 14-foot-tall ceilings, original parquet floors from when the house was built in 1882, a fireplace, and walnut pocket doors.
The kitchen, also on this floor, has marble counters, an original slate mantle, and glass doors that lead to a deck and a verdant private garden. The bedrooms in the house are all located on the garden level, as is a small office space. The house was designed by architect George Morse for industrialist A.G. Jennings.
