History is ever-present at 409 Vanderbilt Avenue, a red brick carriage house built at the end of the 19th century—but beautifully restored today by The Brooklyn Home Company. This 4’4” wide Queen Anne-style house will transport you back to Clinton Hill’s early days as a booming and beautiful neighborhood, where oil barons and entrepreneurs made their home. Designed by one of the best architectural firms of the day, 409 and its neighbor 411 Vanderbilt housed the coachmen and horses for an estate on Clinton Avenue. Now, The Brooklyn Home Company has carefully considered and reconstructed these houses as timeless, inviting spaces. Step through glass and steel doors built into the original archway—through which horse-drawn carriages once clattered—into 409 Vanderbilt. A glass-walled foyer beckons you into a luminous, sunlit living room with nearly 11-foot ceilings. Built-in shelving and custom cabinetry frame a gas fireplace with a custom mantel by Fitzhugh Karol. The historic arches and gables are grace notes echoing throughout the house—from the curved stair edges and banister, to the powder room backsplash, to the interior archway that offers passage to the crisp, clean eat-in kitchen. Viking, Bosch, Sub-Zero and LG appliances make the kitchen thoroughly modern, while exposed beams, an arched stove hood, and a second arched carriage entrance along the back wall connect the room to the home’s rich past. Here, light pours in from the landscaped backyard. Adjacent to the kitchen, a powder room with custom mirror and antique sink, as well as laundry, offer convenience. Up the white oak stairway to the second floor, a central corridor leads to three well-proportioned bedrooms. The largest of the bedrooms has an en suite bath, and a second full bath lies at the end of the hallway. Step up the stairs to the third floor—a warm, skylit space suitable for another bedroom with full en suite bath, or a spacious family room for movie nights under the stars. Split-unit heat and air conditioning, radiant heated floors, and DVR security system bring this 140-year-old home firmly into the 1st century, with all our conveniences and comforts. 409 Vanderbilt perfectly embodies the architectural and historical significance of Clinton Hill. This tree-lined, peaceful but cosmopolitan neighborhood has some of Brooklyn’s finest restaurants and shops and easy access to Ft. Greene Park, Pratt Institute, Barclays Center, the new Apple Store, and many other destinations.
