Built in 1874, 221 Greene Avenue offers the best aspects of a classic and contemporary design sensibility, a process managed by German architect Tilman Schall, formerly of Zaha Hadid Architects. Two floors plus finished basement (2,302 sq. ft. gross), upper garden deck and landscaped yard (390 SF) create an idyllic Brooklyn oasis.

Modern upgrades include: central cooling, recessed ceiling lights and in-ceiling speakers throughout, radiant heated floors in full bathrooms, basement half bath and designated laundry area.

Linear kitchen with seven+ foot long island permits an open atmosphere for entertaining. Full suite of appliances include Subzero (wine fridge, ice maker), Viking cooktop and oven, Miele hood, microwave drawer, Fisher & Paykel double-drawer dishwasher and commercial kitchen inspired double refrigerator and double freezer drawers.

Select exotic materials personalize each bathroom, from Polished Honey Onyx slabs to Multicolor Green Onyx mosaic complemented by various modern fixtures from Boffi and Aquabrass to Robern and Duravit.

Eateries abound. Alongside Michelin-rated restaurant The Finch, specialty markets (Mekelberg's) and bakery-cafes (Choice Market, Dough, Clementine Bakery, Starbucks) are a stone's throw. More notable stops include: Urban Vintage, Bar Laika and Speedy Romeo's wood-fired fare.

Built by Benjamin Linikin, the twelve (12) houses on this block represent the longest row of brownstones in the Clinton Hill historic district. The houses mark a stylistic crossroads of Italianate and Neo-Grec -- classical and neoclassical architecture.
