177 St. James Place is one of a pair of narrow Romanesque Revival houses designed in 1888 by the prominent Brooklyn architect Mercein Thomas for a man named Russell Engs, who resided at 86 Cambridge Place (which has been on and off the market for years). Now the 12-foot-wide brick house is on the market for $1,150,000. Since the house is only 2,440-square-feet, it's not a bargain on a size basis, but it is a chance to own a real charmer of a house in Clinton Hill for a not-huge price tag. Has anyone looked at it yet?
