116 Willoughby is a truly remarkable 4-story Limestone beauty set on a landmarked block in the heart of Clinton Hill. This historical home was lovingly and artfully renovated by the current owners, preserving the stunning original character while providing for every modern convenience.
The wide stoop leads to the Parlor floor where you'll find a perfectly laid-out living space with soaring 10'4" ceilings and exquisite restored mahogany wainscoting. There is beauty everywhere you look from the dramatic staircase to the gorgeous original fireplaces and pocket doors. The heart of this home is the enormous, sunlit chef's kitchen with an original fireplace and double black steel and glass doors leading out to the dreamy south-facing back deck and yard. The walnut cabinetry perfectly compliments the beautiful statuary marble countertops and original brick backsplash. A suite of GE monogram stainless steel appliances includes a gas cooktop with built-in grill and wine fridge on the separate bar area making for effortless entertaining. The kitchen flows seamlessly into the the lovely formal dining room and bright front parlor - spaces that feel expansive but still intimate and full of character.
The entire third floor of the home is dedicated to the incredible master suite. The serene Master Bedroom has its own library sitting area area and an enormous custom dressing room. On the other side of the dressing from you'll find the outrageous the Master Bathroom - just perfection. The stunning rustic custom vanity was made from the original floors and repurposed by Recycled Brooklyn, featuring double sinks and a poured concrete countertop. Luxuriate in the oversized carrara marble steam shower, or watch the clouds go by from the glorious freestanding oval soaking tub - or better yet don't choose, just spend the day here! On the skylit top floor are three more lovely bedrooms, a stylish and well-appointed bathroom plus a skylit bonus room, perfect for an office, playroom or gym.
The expansive garden level features an original fireplace and modern kitchen. Currently used as a home office, den and guest apartment, this could easily be converted to a separate income-producing 1-bedroom apartment with separate access to the street and back garden.
116 Willoughby is a rare gem in one of Brooklyn's most beautiful and dynamic neighborhoods, ready for its next owners to move right in and enjoy everything Clinton Hill has to offer.
