It’s like having your very own Brooklyn townhouse, without the long-term commitment

If you’ve always dreamed of living in a Brooklyn townhouse but never found it convenient to spend millions to own one, this abode in Fort Greene allows you to rent it. We doubt that it is any more cost-effective than downright paying a mortgage, given that it’s asking a cool $10,750/month.

So what does one get with such an expensive rental in Brooklyn? Well, the apartment spans 2,500 square feet, across three floors which essentially means that all but the basement is yours, though the listing description states that access is offered. The home itself dates back to 1899, but it has undergone a full renovation led by studioMDA.

The main level boasts a light and airy living room with herringbone wood floors, 12-foot-high ceilings, built-in bookshelves, a decorative marble fireplace, crown molding, and oversized windows. The open kitchen is bedecked with sleek back cabinets and high-end stainless steel appliances that are built in.

On the second and third floors, you’ll find the condo’s three bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with a home office with a built-in desk. Other neat features include three skylights, a plethora of sunlight, and at least eight closets throughout the home.

The landscaped garden also comes with private access to whoever is willing to pay the pricey rent. And if needed, there is a laundry room in the basement along with additional storage space, likely for an extra fee.
