A stunning Brooklyn, New York home is wowing potential homebuyers. The Clinton Hill four-story, three-family, Turn of the Century Brownstone has undergone a gut renovation. The property has been retrofitted with the latest modern appliances, energy-efficient technology and high-quality details. 
The New York Times reports that this home is 3,600 square feet and includes seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms and 14 rooms. Spanning over four floors, the property is listed for $1,645,000 - or approximately $456.94 per square foot. Originally built in 1900 as a multi-family building, the structure combines the old world charm of its original construction with modern features. 
As soon as an individual walks into the front door, they are greeted with the parlor and a small sitting area. Upstairs, there is a great room that is filled with light from large windows that allows light to flood the open kitchen and dining areas. The open floor plan allows homeowners to entertain guests comfortably, while still preparing food or drink in the kitchen. Both the kitchen and the dining room are custom built and include hardwood cherry floors, restored mantles and a powder room off to the side. 
Radiant floor heating is included underneath the hardwood floors. The utility solution is an energy-efficient option for a homeowner who is interested in decreasing his or her environmental impact. Radiant floor heating reduces the carbon footprint associated with heating the property without decreasing the comfort an individual will feel living in the space. The gentle warmth radiating from the floor fills the entire home and allows an individual to experience the joy of forgoing walking on chilly floors in the morning or during harsh winter months.
