It's down the street from the 18-room Pfizer mansion, so you would be in good company.


If you would love to live in a mansion but can't quite swing the multi-million dollar price tag, check out this co-op at 292-294 Washington Ave., #5, in Clinton Hill. Listed for $935,000 with $795 maintenance, the two-bedroom, one-bath apartment is located in a stately mansion dating to 1905. (It's down the street from the 18-room, single family Pfizer mansion, so you would be in good company.)

The co-op has lots of charming period details, like three oversized windows in the living room, a wood-burning fireplace, hardwood floors, pocket shutters, and high ceilings. 

The open dining and living room areas are divided by an arch with decorative moldings.

The kitchen features practical open shelving and stainless steel appliances. 

The master bedroom is spacious and has a decorative fireplace, ceiling medallion, and large windows.

The second bedroom, while not technically a real bedroom, looks for fine a child's room or study. (To be a legal bedroom, no dimension should be less that eight feet.)

The bathroom could probably use an update, but seems to be in good repair. 

Located in the Clinton Hill Historic District, the apartment is on a tree-lined block surrounded by impressive houses, and one block away from the Clinton-Washington Avenue G train station. Fort Greene Park and the Pratt Institute are nearby, as are eating, shopping, and drinking options along Dekalb, Lafayette, and beyond.
