Among the brick and brownstone homes of Clinton Hill, this Federal-style two-family townhouse at 240 Lafayette Avenue is currently configured as a single-family home. Asking for $3,300,000, the four-story house retained its historic character, with five marble fireplace mantels, ornate ceiling medallions, exposed brickwork, high ceilings and full-height townhouse windows. In the traditional layout, modern improvements – such as central heating and air conditioning – which make it a pleasant and habitable house – with the possibility of creating an apartment or a suite for rent.

Up the grand front porch and through vast mahogany double doors, enter the living room of the house. With alabaster light fixtures above and reclaimed chestnut floors below, this large level contains two living rooms, front and rear, open and bathed in sunlight.

Through the back door is a paved garden with raised beds. There is also a renovated bathroom on this floor.

Downstairs, on the garden level, is a sunny, modern kitchen, framed by rustic exposed brickwork, white painted beams and colorful patterned wall tiles. The kitchen features a dining and prep island, new appliances, and plenty of cabinets and shelving for storage and display. Adjacent is a casual dining and living room. The open space receives plenty of light through custom windows.

The townhouse currently offers five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Upstairs is a large master bedroom and a second bedroom. A large bath has been renovated with both marble luxury and industrial flair.

On the top floor are three more bedrooms and a bathroom. The smallest of the bedrooms is currently used as a colorful home office.

A newly cast and renovated cellar with a wet room can be used for storage and laundry or incorporated into everyday life. This classic Clinton Hill home is steps from the G and C trains and across from Underwood Park and its playground.
