Gates Avenue Townhouse

Clinton Hill, Brooklyn


Fathom five

Five floors make up this family home in Clinton Hill. Entering at street level, an open-plan living space reaches back to the kitchen, with an arched window beside the dining area for eight, and a comfy sofa (for movie viewing) nearest the door. Up one flight you’ll find a ‘princess’ room, a smart sofa bedroom, walls hung with maps, and a bunk bedroom – usually occupied by a budding Hendrix. On the next one up, adults have the floor to themselves and there’s a last, lofted bedroom above.

If it isn’t clear that this is a home with children at its heart, the basement floor will fathom it for you. There’s a pint-sized billiard table in the room with a red-chequered floor – and stools for the grand final’s audience. And what about the narrow corridor we passed on the way down? That leads out to the garden, where you can shoot hoops or catch rays, weather permitting.
