Gather up your copies of "Kinfolk" magazine and check your bank balance. This two-family limestone, 19 Clarkson Ave. in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, is staged as a design aficionado's boho Brooklyn haven (nod to the antique tools on the wall). Listed for $1,995,000, the three-story was built in 1910, and sits on a lot that is 20 feet wide and 120 feet deep. It appears to have been fully renovated.

The limestone is configured as an upper duplex with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths over the lower level rental, which has two bedrooms and one bath. It is equipped with central heating and cooling, and there are washer/dryer hookups in both apartments. Other features include built in storage and wide oak floors.

The owner's apartment has an open living and dining area, with plenty of room for a dining table. 

There is storage space under the stairs, as well as a powder room. 

A chef's kitchen has high-end stainless steel appliances, an island with seating and a door leading out to the backyard.

The master bedroom has an en suite bath, and access to a private terrace. 

Many rooms have oversized bay windows. 

One bathroom has a double vanity and gray tilework. 

The garden level apartment has one bathroom. It also has access to the backyard. 

The townhouse is a block from Prospect Park, as well as the Q train stop at Parkside Avenue. Shopping and dining options can be found nearby along Flatbush, Parkside, and Rogers avenues.
