Clinton Hill Historic Charmer. Rarely does a home reveal its charms in its address, but 237 St James Pl is an exception. At nearly 23' wide, this gut renovated Italianate home was originally built in 1864 by William Alexander, a brick mason and prolific speculative builder. The quality of his product, both the bricks and the home, has been thoughtfully brought back to life and modernized for the discerning buyer. Upon climbing the high-step brownstone stoop to enter the parlor level, the true scale and width of the home is felt. The 3/4" herringbone pattern white oak floors, soaring 12' ceilings, exposed bricks, fireplace and original staircase greet and beckon visitors to step into the natural light of the open floor plan. The west facing home knows no dark corners, the front parlor is perfect to just sit and look out the 10' windows. The dining area can easily accommodate guests, and the rear of the parlor level has been turned into a chef's choice kitchen with GE monogram integrated appliances, quartz counters, dual sinks, wine fridge, custom maple boxes, and 10' tall retractable glass doors leading to the deck and yard. Just off the hall is a half bathroom to complete this level. On the third level is the primary floor. Located at the rear of the home, the king-sized bedroom leads into a well-tailored walk-in closet that flows into the primary bath, with a deep soaking tub, separate standing shower, and dual sinks. An office/den can be found as you head upstairs to the fourth floor. On the top floor are two large bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Each room offers ample space and privacy. The laundry room completes this level. Heading back down, the upper triplex has exclusive access to the full height finished cellar. This space is ideal for a home theater, gym, studio, game room, or wine cellar. It has a half bath as well as direct access to the rear yard. On the garden level the two-bedroom, one bathroom guest apartment maintains the clean lines and considerable proportions of the home. There is a proper foyer with closet, the open living/dining/kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a fireplace! The primary bedroom on this level has yard access, and the office/guest room looks over the rear yard. There is separate laundry on this level as well. The home underwent a massive structural renovation that also includes CAT 6 wiring, Bluetooth integrated speakers, radiant heat on the parlor and primary level, dual function forced-air HVAC systems, solid core Spanica doors, Solani tile, and a new roof. 237 St James Pl is in the Clinton Hill South Historic District, it is located between Fulton St and Lefferts Pl, a bucolic block where residents are provided with the support of an established neighborhood and the respect and privacy that only Brooklyn can deliver. Local businesses included multiple Michelin Star restaurants, Emily Pizza and Locanda Vini e Olii, well stocked curative wine shop Leon & Son, community focused grocers, Key Food, and delicious bakeries and cafes, Good Batch and Otway Bread to name a few. Information deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Equal housing opportunity. Front exterior door and banister/balusters are virtually altered and will be painted black.
