The townhouse at 334 Clinton St. in Cobble Hill is hard to miss. The five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Queen Anne with a mansard roof was designed by architect James Naughton and built in 1850. It is listed for $4.95 million.

The house has hardwood floors, pocket doors, detailed woodwork, and an iron front gate. 

The house is four stories tall, and the lower two floors extend out. The parlor floor has a formal dining room, a living room, and a kitchen with a bay window overlooking the rear garden. 

This level also has two marble fireplaces and a half bathroom. The listing does not offer a look at any of the bathrooms, which could be a red flag.

The second and third floors each have two bedrooms and a full bathroom, as well as walk-in closets. 

The ground floor is currently set up as a home office, but the listing says it could be used as a separate studio for rent, and the floor plan shows that it has its own kitchen.


The house is on a quiet, tree-lined street, near a cornucopia of stores and restaurants on Court Street, Smith Street, and Atlantic Avenue. It's six blocks from the F and G trains at Bergen Street.
