One long-ago resident of this tiny carriage house-filled Brooklyn street claimed the location “inspires goodness in children.” While it’s not clear if that 1940s wisdom about Hunts Lane holds true, the picturesque spot does still have plenty of charm, and a rare rental on the market that isn’t sky high in price. While this one isn’t overflowing with period details, it does offer two bedrooms, wood floors, a decorative mantel and the added attraction of no fee.

On a corner lot, this grand early 20th century limestone offers more than a fair amount of space along with mantels, built-ins and other period details — not to mention the perk of a garage. Its location, at 53 St. Pauls Place in Flatbush, also has the attraction of being just a short walk from Prospect Park.
