Via Douglas Elliman

A three-story Boerum Hill townhouse that dates back to 1843 is now being offered up as a rental for $14,000/month. The Greek Revival-style townhouse features four and a half bedrooms, and two and half bathrooms, and is part of the Boerum Hill Historic District, which is notable for its Greek Revival and Italianate-style homes that were built between the mid-to-late 19th century.

The townhouse at 146 Bergen Street has been thoroughly modernized from the inside, and the rental comes equipped with Amazon’s Alexa, which is currently programmed to control the heating, lighting, motorized shades, security, intercom, garden irrigation, and the thermostat.

The townhouse opens up on the first floor, which features the house’s living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, and the dining room has a decorative one; both rooms are separated by pocket doors. The light-filled eat-in kitchen has a host of swanky appliances and finishes including a reclaimed wood and cast iron table, a Fisher and Paykel refrigerator, a microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal all by Bosch, and radiant heated flooring.

The kitchen overlooks the townhouse’s sprawling garden, which includes a Japanese Maple tree, a Dogwood tree, and raised vegetable and herb beds. The deck overlooking the garden is also perfect for outdoor dining, according to the broker on the listing.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor, and has access to a walk-in closet and a home office/sitting room. Another large bedroom on this floor has currently been setup as an entertainment room and comes with a 100-inch drop-down screen. The bathroom on this floor has a soaking tub, a separate shower, two sinks, a skylight, and radiant heated floors. Two additional bedrooms are located on the top floor as is the townhouse’s washer and dryer.

This rental constitutes the upper three floors of the townhouse; there’s a separate unit on the garden level.
