277 ST JAMES Place$2,495,000For Sale

For Sale
Located in the heart of Clinton Hill, 277 Saint James Place is 4 floors of almost 3,000 sq ft brownstone townhouse living that boasts a large backyard and is ready for your dream renovation. With ceiling heights soaring over 10.5 feet on some floors, and the multiple bay windows and arched doorways, this legal 2-family home offers a perfect backdrop for your custom home. This home needs a full gut renovation. Previously set up as two duplexes (6 total bedrooms), the home could easily be transformed into a massive single-family house, an owner's triplex on top of a garden single floor rental, or remain as 2 duplexes. The entrance to the garden apartment is located under the stoop and is sectioned off for privacy. While the current interior is nearly 3,000 sq ft, there is 2,000 sq ft of additional FAR available (per Property Shark) to add to your space. There are currently 4 bedrooms in the upper apartment and 2 bedrooms in the lower apartment, with a full bathroom on each of the 4 floors, making a cosmetic upgrade to the existing layout, for investors or end users alike. The location is prime - a beautiful Saint James block in Clinton Hill, nestled in the middle of Brooklyn's favorite parks: only 15 minutes from both Fort Greene Park and Prospect Park. It is conveniently located one block from the restaurant strips of Fulton, including Key Food Supermarket, The Good Batch with the best cookies, Sisters restaurant and bar, Emily's pizza, and just around the corner from a plethora of cafes, restaurants, and bars, on Vanderbilt, Atlantic, and Washington Ave. Famous local spots such as Mac Shack (all the takes on mac and cheese), Leland's restaurant and bar, Ciao Gloria cafe, Bearded Lady (50's diner-inspired restaurant and bar), and Nourish (Thai-restaurant) are all a stone's throw from your doorstep. Transit is also very close by, with the C train only 2 blocks away, and about 15 minutes from Atlantic Ave (and Barclays). Please note this is not a landmarked house.
