451 Clinton Ave

Once in a great while a magical place called HOME comes to market. It is that place that speaks to you about Convenience, as you park your car in your private free standing garage. It says PEACE as you and exit the back door onto a grassy-tree filled park setting. You think SAFE as you follow the sidewalk to your private gate. Just down two steps you think RETREAT in your YOUR PRIVATE courtyard. You think HOME at the entrance of your 2 bedroom apartment. A one of a kind layout awaits you in this 31 unit coop building. A second entrance from the den/office goes into the building, and a short distance to the laundry room. (no stairs or elevators between you and the machines) AKA 446 Waverly Ave, Brooklyn, NY is the gated entrance to this private retreat in the middle of Clinton Hills' best neighborhood. OPEN Houses and access through this location please. The coop is located in the iconic Fort Greene- Clinton Hill area and boast a turn of the century feel. "The Hill", as the general area was first known, has a maximum elevation of 95 feet, the highest in the area, and back in the day, it was believed to have special health benefits. The neighborhood's mixture of apartment buildings, mansions, brownstone and brick rowhouses, and the Pratt Institute and St. Joseph's College, are all part of its charm.The C and G trains serve this area, which open up many commuter possibilities.Coming Home to Clinton Hill also means experiencing foodie heaven! Weekend brunches have a following, and they are worth traveling the train to enjoy. For example, if you want to eat traditional pasta at an outside location, go to LaRina. Their back patio is like a secret garden with ivy on the walls and colorful tiles. Walters is where you go for a consistently good plate of food in a setting that feels like an old-school bar. The employees might be dressed like theyre waiting for Cornelius Vanderbilt to travel forward in time and demand a plate of oysters, but dont be fooled - this place is as casual as any other neighborhood spot. Karasu is hidden in behind a door in the back of Walter Foods, and its the closest thing Fort Greene has to a speakeasy. It isnt as uptight as your average speakeasy, however, and both the food and the cocktails are worth traveling for. The Finch is where you go in Clinton Hill when you want to eat tasting-menu-style things without having to do a tasting menu. The food here is seasonal, farm-to-restaurant stuff, and, at any given time, youll be able to find at least ten ingredients here that have been considered trendy" like Fiddlehead ferns, ramps, bottarga.If you are looking for a place to call your own, this one-of-a-kind, magical place will be available soon....
