Located in the Clinton Hill Historic District, Lafayette is stately four-story Brooklyn brownstone which retained much of its historic architectural millwork and plasterwork intact—but in need of substantial repair.
Following an extensive renovation, the multi-family brownstone was converted back to its original use as a single-family home to include 4- bedrooms and 5- bathrooms. The plasterwork on the parlor floor, in particular on the living room ceiling, takes center stage, while the ornate wooden staircase and decorative stone mantels anchor each of four levels. A sleek black kitchen sits atop dark-stained, wide-plank cherry floors, while the black interior doors and staircase contrast nicely against bright white walls and trim. A rear deck allows for outdoor dining and entertaining with access to a beautifully landscaped yard. Atop this stunning home, a penthouse, deck and hot tub enable panoramic views of the neighborhood and Manhattan skyline in the distance.
