Two-Bedroom, Floor-Through Apartment in Prospect Lefferts Gardens Asks $2,000 a Month

This two-bedroom in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is on the second floor of a late 1890s detached townhouse at 275 Rutland Road and was built as a two-family. While it’s a good price in the current market for a two-bedroom, the caveat is that the second bedroom is a small room above the foyer accessed through the larger bedroom, which might work for a small child or a discreet roommate without a lot of belongings.

The floors are hardwood and in good condition, and the living room retains a simple mantel with a ledge and a few floriate details. The crown molding throughout is intact, though all of it is painted.

In the kitchen, tan tile floors and standard Home Depot-style cabinets are accompanied by a relatively new gas stove. There’s also a separate dining area, shown in the photos with an outdoor table with an umbrella — hopefully the umbrella is just for flair. The photos are from a 2012 listing so it’s probably a bygone relic. There’s no photo of the bathroom.

The facade of the building has lost its original detail, replaced by siding and decorative wood shutters, but you can see that it once had a porch, glazed double entrance doors, window trim and a dentiled cornice with simple fascia in the circa 1940 tax photo.

It’s located close to Prospect Park and the nearest subways are 5 blocks to the 2 and 5 stop at Sterling Street and 6.5 blocks to the B, Q and S lines at the Prospect Park station.

A 2012 listing shows that it previously rented for $1,600, and noted there was a washer/ dryer in the building. Now it’s going for $2,000, listed by Bill Sheppard at Brown Harris Stevens. Will it go fast?
