Gorgeous $3K Crown Heights rental is in the turret of a historic building

The duplex apartment is in a leafy, landmarked area of the neighborhood


The historic Crown Heights mansion at 875 Saint Marks Avenue sold for $1.4 million in early 2013, only to appear the following year as six renovated one- and two-bedroom condos priced from $449,000. The most expensive of those condos was a flex two-bedroom duplex with two bathrooms, on the market for $659,000. BK to the Fullest was right to warn its readers after the building sold to "[u]nderestimate this neighb' at your own peril”: The condo ended up selling for $22,000 over ask.

Now, that apartment has returned to the market, but as a rental with a pleasantly modest asking price of $2,995/month, just slightly over the borough’s current median of $2,785/month. For that, renters will have lay to the apartment’s 1,327 square feet, including herringbone wood floors and a modern kitchen with funky blue cabinetry, white Ceasarstone countertops, and a dishwasher.

A queen-sized bedroom on the main floor is accented with a stained glass window. The listed second bedroom in the basement could also be used a recreation room. A full bathroom can also be found on this floor.

The building is across the street from Brower Park and is on the edge of the Crown Heights North Historic District.

Yes, we see it too.
