Charming Windsor Terrace Rental With Checkerboard Inlay Floors Asks $2,800 a Month


A two-bedroom rental in a classic early 20th century cooperative is available in Windsor Terrace, directly across the street from Prospect Park, though the windows are facing the rear. The building is at 14 Prospect Park SW, part of a row of four red brick apartment buildings constructed circa 1915 with limestone doorways, ground levels and decorative details.

Photos show the place set up with a living room with a sectional sofa in what would be the second bedroom. Nonetheless, it has a separate dining room that is plenty large to double as a flexible living/dining room. The place comes with notable features like French doors, wainscoting and period moldings, along with hardwood floors with a distinctive checkerboard inlay.

The layout has a foyer with a closet in the hallway and a bathroom to the right, followed by the kitchen and living/dining room. One of the bedrooms is entered through the kitchen, and the other that doubles as the current living room has doors both into the other bedroom and from the living/ dining room. It’s a little atypical but easy enough to remedy if used as a bedroom.

The bathroom has distinctive black and blue hexagonal floor tiles and a matching border in small squares around the white subway tile walls. The sink is on a pedestal and the medicine cabinet has open shelves with sconces above.

The kitchen too is quite nice for a rental apartment, with a dishwasher, cabinets and appliances that are not new but have a consistent aesthetic. Tan tiles cover the kitchen floor.

There’s an open house tonight, Thursday, January 23 from 6 to 7 pm. Paul Johansen and Douglas (Doug) Bowen at Douglas Elliman are the brokers for the place, which is renting for $2,800 a month. Is it worth a look?
