468 Waverly Avenue is a rare gem located in the heart of Clinton Hill's Historic District. Currently occupied by a family for over 50 years, this beautiful two-family home is ready for new love and life.

Built in 1867 by Joseph Kirby, 468 Waverly Avenue is a fine example of the French Second Empire style brick townhome. This style's distinguishing features include the slate Mansard roof, named for 17th century French architect Louis Mansart, and three dormer windows, which provide an extra floor where attic space would have been. Additional features include the tall parlor floor windows, the ornate window heads, and entrance canopy.

Inside the home, the parlor level evokes the grandeur and class that has lived in this home and on this block of Waverly over 150 years. The parlor and dining room are stunning with high ceilings, picture frame molding and exquisite crown molding with ceiling centerpieces. Period features continue with pocket shutters and inlayed flooring. Pocket doors bisect the parlor and dining room, each with their own marble fireplace mantles.

Up the stairs, to the second floor is where you'll find the two main bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have picture frame molding, marble mantles and wide-plank subflooring. At 21' wide lays the front, East-facing bedroom which features three windows, each with their original pocket shutters. The bathroom has a full size window and is home to a classic clawfoot bathtub. The top floor, amid a stalled renovation, is currently a separate unit with two bedrooms, a bare bones kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms, each overlooking Waverly Avenue. This floor can be renovated and reconfigured to create an upper triplex with the parlor, 2nd and 3rd floor.

The garden level has a bedroom in the front, with the same features seen throughout the rest of the home - marble mantel, picture frame molding, ceiling medallion, pocket shutters and wide plank flooring - however, this room additionally features exposed brick. The kitchen and bathroom are to the back, with the shed and backyard accessed through the kitchen.

This home has the groundwork laid and is ready for your vision.

The location could not be better. One block North, Purvis J. Behan Elementary School (P.S.11) and Greene Playground. One block South, all the conveniences and amenities of Fulton Street including great restaurants like Emily, Belli Osteria and Sisters. For travel into Manhattan or around Brooklyn, the Clinton-Washington C train is just around the corner.

This is your opportunity to make part of history your own. Get in touch with any questions or to schedule a private tour.
