Townhouse pick of the week

This Clinton Hill multi-family comes with ultra-modern renovations, and possibly lucrative rental income

If you spend much time browsing the Brooklyn townhouse market, you'll notice that most of the higher-end homes for sale share two qualities: a mix of classic original finishes and sleek, modern renovations; and a multi-family layout that allows owners to live on site while still collecting rent from a second, smaller apartment on the lower level.

This $3.295 million townhouse in Clinton Hill has both. The owner's triplex on the parlor level features period details such as wainscotting and herringbone hardwood floors. It also has a chef's kitchen with room for a dining table and a breakfast bar, high-end appliances, panel-controlled lighting, and French glass doors that lead out to the shared backyard terrace.

The upper levels appear to get plenty of natural light, and the master suite includes a fireplace, as well as an open rain shower and a soaking tub with air jets.

There are modern conveniences including central air and laundry rooms; the lower duplex has its own kitchen, washer and dryer, separate entrance, and rec room, in addition to sharing access with the backyard. And if it's even more greenspace you're after, the home is just a few blocks away from Fort Greene Park.
