Full Baths


Half Bath


Modern meets Historical Beautiful in every way, meticulously-maintained, and thoughtfully designed, this four bedroom, two and a half bath one-family home with front and rear gardens has historic integrity along with today’s amenities such as central air conditioning, radiant heat floors, and modern kitchen. Lovingly restored, this spectacular and charming residence showcases ornamental slate fireplace mantels, parquet floors, original wooden built-in drawers and cabinets, high ceilings, oversized windows, a skylight above the staircase, and wood molding, trim and delicate decorative detailing. The original fluid floor plan remains untouched yet the bones of this building have been revitalized: new facade and stoop, upgraded electrical and plumbing, enhanced unseen mechanical details, and a keyless entry and 4K camera system make entry and answering the door a breeze. Beautiful reclaimed wood planks were recently installed in the garden level and original parquet floors were refinished throughout. Designer lighting fixtures adorn the rooms. Located on a leafy, quiet, and residential block in historic Clinton Hill, this four-story gem is totally turnkey. Pets on approval. Available unfurnished, semi-furnished, furnished. The classic parlor floor may be used for small social gatherings, lavish entertaining, or as a complete and comforting family hideaway. With simple lines, a decorative fireplace mantel, and striking woodwork, this is the heart of the house. The rear living room, graciously sized, is difficult to leave once you settle in. Separated by a pocket door, easily transition to the front parlor which serves as a lovely formal dining room along with an ample reading alcove. Alternatively, enjoy the front parlor as a music room or home office. The garden level has a cozy family room, a fully updated and outfitted country kitchen with top of the line appliances including a Viking stove warmed with original wainscoting, and a private half bath filled with historic personality. The kitchen is designed for serious cooks, creating a special gathering place for family and guests. A stainless Sub-Zero refrigerator, two additional custom Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers, and extensive countertops make organizing and food preparation a breeze. The 20’ x 15’ rear garden with an exquisite bluestone patio is right outside the kitchen door, convenient for grilling and dining, or lounging. Gas grill included in the rental. On the third and fourth floors find two large bedrooms and a spacious full bath. The bath on the top floor was recently renovated and features a brand new full-sized stackable LG washer/dryer as well as a closeted storage area. The top floor has a bonus windowed room for use as a nursery, office, guest room, dressing room, or meditation space. Built in the 1880s by Henry Coe and designed by Amzi Hill, this red brick NeoGrec sits among a handsome row of homes located in the Clinton Hill historic district. The exterior brick is enlivened by recessed panels and corbeled courses, and accented by rectangular front bays, a high stoop with iron railings, double door, and pilaster strips. The tall windows with views to nature make this home a true respite from city life. 153 Willoughby conveys calm, grace, and sophistication. Myrtle, DeKalb, and Vanderbilt Avenues, are all nearby and overflowing with cafes, restaurants, and conveniences. Brooklyn Academy of Music and Fort Greene Park are also in your backyard.
