On Monday we brought you the 10 most expensive rental listings in New York City, all of which (big surprise) turned out to be in Manhattan. But for those of looking for something cheaper and yet still completely unaffordable, there's always Brooklyn. Here's a list of the 10 most expensive rental listings in Brooklyn, mostly consisting of townhouses in Park Slope and Brooklyn, with a few apartments mixed in, too.
↑ In Park Slope, this three-story townhouse is renting for $14,995/month. It features a parlor-level deck and a fenced-in rear garden, as well as a garden level kitchenette with dual beverage centers/wine coolers. Not a bad place to have in the summer (or any time).
↑ In Dumbo's reliably expensive Clocktower Building, a three-bedroom unit on the 11th floor is renting for $15,000/month. It has a huge living/dining room with an open kitchen and sweeping East River views.
↑ In Fort Greene, the upper duplex of a two-unit townhouse is asking $15,895/month. If you'd like to see some less profession-looking pictures of it you can click through to the listing and check out the ones that the broker took with her iPhone "because it would be impossible to take a bad picture of this incredibly gorgeous 3300 SF fort green beauty." That aside, the house was not able to find a renter when it was listed in April for $18,500/month and had the price reduced at the end of that month.
↑ Though the pictures aren't the best, this three-story townhouse in Brooklyn Heights appears to have a lot of original details to go along with its seven bedrooms and lovely rear garden. It's going for $16,000/month.
↑ In the priciest apartment building in Prospect Heights, the Richard Meier Building on Prospect Park, a four-bedroom unit is going for $18,000/month, down from the $20,000/month it was asking when it was first listed in April. As is customary for apartments in the building, it features a sprawling living room with floor-to-ceiling windows.
↑ In Brooklyn Heights, another seven-bedroom townhouse, this one recently renovated, is going for $18,500/month. It has retained a few minor details from its 19th century brownstone past.
↑ Also in Brooklyn Heights, a four-story single-family townhouse is asking $18,500/month. It was built in 1816 and is apparently "Award-winning."
↑ In Park Slope, this impressive four-story brownstone, which is also for sale for just under $7 million, is asking $19,300/month, and has been since last September. I had a lot of wood paneling, stained glass skylights, and four functional fireplaces.
↑ Still in Park Slope, a 21-foot-wide Italianate brownstone is going for $19,950/month. It looks perfectly nice but it was listed in late April and the listing says it's "Available furnished for the months of May and June," so time may be running out on that one.
↑ And in Brooklyn Heights, the most expensive rental in Brooklyn by a healthy margin is this 6,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom townhouse asking $25,000/month. It comes fully furnished and has four working fireplaces and is wired with a Sonos sound system.
