A postwar brick house has a roomy two-bedroom rental available in Bay Ridge, just blocks from the neighborhood’s scenic Owl Head Park. The apartment at 223 Senator Street features wood floors, multiple closets, a storage area and access to backyard space.
The unit is on the ground floor of the two-family home, with a separate entrance underneath the high stoop. The living room has just one window but is fairly spacious and opens into the attached kitchen.
The eat-in kitchen has simple white cabinets and stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher. The floor sports a checkerboard pattern in Marmoleum, a bit of a style nod to the house’s 1950s heritage. The bathroom skips the color for an all-white scheme.
Reaching the bathroom and the two bedrooms requires a walk through the kitchen. The bedrooms both look out onto the rear yard; the smaller of the two has a door to the small patio beyond. The larger portion of the yard is, presumably, reserved for the second-floor unit as there’s a low fence between it and the patio. But the patch of yard that comes with the ground floor unit has a paved area with what looks like room for a small table and chairs.
The house, and many of its neighbors on the block, was built as a two-family in 1950. The stretch of little brick houses features high stoops, peaked rooflines and touches of the Colonial along with what every modern new house needed in 1950, a garage.
That garage is not included in the rental, but the listing does mention that the bonus storage area located under the stoop would be ideal for a bike. There’s subway access too, with the Bay Ridge Avenue stop on the R train a few blocks away.
Listed by Susan Chung and Clare Saliba of Compass, the apartment is available for $2,250 a month. A decent deal?
