Known for its ornate brownstones, leafy sidewalks, and Brooklyn charm, Clinton Hill is quite a sought-after neighborhood. Prices can soar into the multi-million-dollars, but there are plenty of more affordable apartments in the neighborhood as well. Our Deal of the Week is a great example: 361 Clinton Ave. #3H is a Clinton Hill 1BR in the historic district with lots of space and amenities, all with a stellar price tag.

The Price: $665,000

Why You’ll Love It…

Calling all cooks! The big, bright, and recently renovated kitchen in this Clinton Hill 1BR is a showstopper. High-end appliances include a Bosch dishwasher and a professional-grade gas range. There are also custom cabinets, pristine Caesarstone countertops, satin-brass fixtures, and a deep farmhouse sink.

Open to the kitchen, the living/dining area is outfitted with oversize windows that let in plenty of natural light and give the space a greenhouse-like feel. Wide French doors lead into a bonus room, which would make a great home office or guest room: Close the doors for privacy, or leave them open for a massive, wide-open living space. The king-size bedroom features another large window, plus an L-shaped custom closet.

This home is in the Clinton Hill Co-Ops South Campus, a serene and park-like setting located in the neighborhood’s historic district. It’s an easy walk to the G and C trains, and Fort Greene Park and the many restaurants of Dekalb Avenue are also right nearby.

… And Why You Might Not

The bonus room here is a welcome bit of extra space, for sure, but it does not have any windows. The only light comes from the living room through glass-paneled French doors, which are outfitted with blackout shades in case the room is being used to sleep in. But that would certainly make it feel closed in. Regardless, this Clinton Hill 1BR has more square footage than most, plus a great location and modern amenities.
