The setting for this three-bedroom Ridgewood rental is downright adorable: It’s located on Stockholm Street between Onderdonk and Woodward avenues, a stretch that’s paved with yellow bricks that were used to build the surrounding homes. The street itself is lined with two-floor homes, many of which even have porches—like we said, adorable.
Inside, the home itself is as charming as the street it’s on. Its owners were profiled by the New York Times back in 2011, and their space was described as the “comfortable fantasy of a simple upstate farmhouse.” To achieve that effect, they added rustic touches—custom cabinets made from white wainscoting, a vintage-style stove fireplace, beamed ceilings, shiplap accents, and more. (If you want to capture that “industrial farmhouse” vibe yourself, the owners have their own design studio.)
The first floor is devoted to the living space—there’s a living room/den hybrid just off of the foyer, with the expansive kitchen and dining room at the back. The kitchen leads out to a deck and garden. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms (including a master with en-suite bathroom), as well as a spacious library (which comes with built-ins and a rolling ladder) and a play area.
In short, it’s the stuff of shelter-mag dreams—and it could be yours for $5,700/month.
