Once a star of Clinton Hill’s House Tour, this wide and elegant townhouse at 219 Washington arrives on the market eager to show off elegant detailing throughout—21-foot-wide, bay-windowed front parlor, carved mahogany mantle, 13-foot ceilings, original wide pine floors, and central air. The parlor floor includes a dining room and designer kitchen with cork floors and birds-eye maple cabinetry, with a deck with stairs to a landscaped garden in back. Both the third floor, comprising two large bedrooms, a smaller bedroom and a playroom, and the fourth floor with its loft-like master bedroom suite, are set off by balconies. A spanking new garden-floor apartment featuring all stainless steel appliances will bring high rental income. All around you is subtly changing Clinton Hill, grandly historic and increasingly infused with arts, culture and commercial buzz. Pricing is $2,195,000; occupancy, immediate.



Satori, a stunning four-story condo newcomer to charming Carroll Gardens, is imbued with traditional Japanese design and atmosphere, beginning with its distinctive wood panel exterior and a sleek lobby set off by bamboo and resin walls. Or as Sarah Burke of the Developers Group notes, “It features all the elements for effortless and harmonious living—from its sun-drenched residences to thoughtfully selected fixtures and finishes.” Satori means “sudden enlightenment,” and the 34 spacious units (studios, one, and two bedrooms) reflect this with such details as a wall of windows, floating stairs, soaring ceilings and hardwood floors. There are unimpeded views onto a district full of smart brownstones, chic boutiques and charming antique shops; Carroll Park’s playgrounds, walkways and sitting zones are nearby, and so is busy Smith Street. Prices start at $385,000 and occupancy is early 2009.
