Interested in living in a Brooklyn brownstone but would like some help with the costs? This three-family townhouse on the border of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill at 286 Clifton Place includes two renovated rental units that could ease the mortgage payment.

The 4,000-square-foot, four-story building is listed for $2,725,000, and it underwent a full renovation, during which it was converted to a three family.

The owner’s duplex is located on the garden and parlor floors, and has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. It features an open-concept living room and dining area, high ceilings, new floors, and a decorative fireplace.

The new kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and a back door opens onto a deck that overlooks the garden.

The south-facing master bedroom, which comes with a walk-in closet, looks onto the backyard, which is enclosed by a fence. The master en-suite bath features wall-to-wall marble.

The townhouse has a fully finished basement, with plenty of storage. Additional conveniences include forced-air heating and cooling, a washer/dryer, and ADT security.

The upper floor rentals are two bedroom, one-bath apartments with renovated kitchens and bathrooms and decorative mantles. (The listing estimates the total rent roll at $6,000.)

The townhouse is one block from the Bedford-Nostrand G train, and a dozen blocks from the A at Nostrand. Plenty of eating, drinking, and shopping can be found nearby along Bedford and Lafayette avenues.
