Property Description

Built in 1887 by architect Adam E. Fischer, 396 Washington Avenue is a rare Clinton Hill mansion with 32 feet of frontage and parking for three cars. This sprawling Queen Anne style townhouse was built for William H. Mairs, who was the largest manufacturer of wallpaper in the United States. The original facade, which was meticulously crafted from terracotta, brick, and brownstone, is fully intact. Inside, many original Gilded Age architectural details have been restored. This grand home is beautifully renovated with four apartments across five floors, including an extensive garden duplex, and three sun-filled floor-through apartments above. The parlor-level duplex is stunningly elegant with soaring ceilings, two fireplaces, stained glass, and a grand chef’s kitchen that opens up to a sprawling wrap-around porch perched over a beautiful garden and Zen-like fishpond. There you can entertain or keep this rare oasis all to yourself. Though, once you see the handcrafted deck you may start looking for excuses to entertain. Apartment two is a two-bedroom, two-bath stunner that stretches 80 feet deep and has windows on three sides. You have to see it for yourself. Apartment three is an 900 square foot single bedroom home with a beautiful roof deck and panoramic views for you to enjoy day or night. On the top floor, apartment four is a sun-drenched two-bedroom. Ready to venture out into your new neighborhood or the city beyond? You’re only a stone’s throw from the Clinton/Washington G and C trains as well as the best of Clinton Hill and Fort Greene’s shops, cafes, eateries, and cultural institutions, including Pratt, BAM, Fort Greene Park, and much more. If you are looking to drive around the city and to points beyond, rest assured that you’ll never have to circle the block for parking again, as you have your own private parking for two cars in the side yard and room for a third in the gated driveway. Come see this magnificent Brooklyn mansion and make it your own. Shown by appointment only.
