91 Cambridge Pl
91 Cambridge Place comprises one of four original and unusual Italianate residences built in 1863 by William Montgomery in the historic Clinton Hill landmarked district of Brooklyn. Minutes from Manhattan and right near subway access the two family home is set up as a magnificent owners triplex and a very charming one bedroom rental. The owners have achieved a visually stunning and European influenced restoration that is equally pleasing as it is understated. The combination of original details such as eight ornate mantles (non working) extraordinary natural light and high ceilings coupled with all original floors capture a country like elegance. The owners have installed a custom made Lacanche range imported from France with a solid marble and wainscoted island counter with the largest possible farmhouse sink in the kitchen. The triplex itself consists of five and a half bedrooms and two baths. The tenants apartment is 1 BR and 1 bath. All mechanical, roof, facade, heating, electrical and plumbing have been done within the past fifteen years or less and within the requirements of landmarks and preservation's approval. The garden is spectacular and has been professionally landscaped by a noted professional. Specimens include two Japanese maples, daffodils, bluebells, hydrangeas and roses and two river birches trees that go ablaze in orange every November. The landscape also includes a self watering system, outdoor evening lighting, original bluestone slabs and reclaimed townhouse bricks. Current taxes $2575/yr. We look forward to your visit to this charmer.
