Roomy Two-Bedroom With Bay Windows, Garden, Gas Grill in East Flatbush Asks $2,000


Here’s a two-bedroom rental in East Flatbush we can get behind. It’s got a large living room with bay windows, hardwood floors, and an arched doorway into the dining room. The straightforward kitchen with tiled floors and modern appliances has plenty of wood cabinets and a backsplash covered with syncopated, multicolored tiles. A door from the kitchen steps onto a terrace and down to a backyard with gardening potential for someone with a green thumb, as well as room for kids to play and dogs to run — and it comes equipped with a gas grill.

The interior has door trim and moldings throughout, as well as picture rails, and we see a coat closet in the photos. The bathroom has white tiles with black borders around the bathtub and new-looking sink faucet and cabinet. As for the two bedrooms, one is bigger than the other and has two windows vs. one in the other, judging by photos — likely negotiating leverage in a roommate-split situation.

The location is East Flatbush not too far from the old Flatbush Town Hall and Kings Theatre. The unit is on the first floor of a two-story circa 1906 brick row house with a rounded bay, stone lintels and bands, a dentiled cornice, and incised floriate patterns over the parlor-level doorway.

At $2,000 per month, it brings a little bit of joy to see such a nice place anywhere in the city offered at a rate affordable to a moderate-income household, in this case a combined income of $80,000 according to the standard calculation. There was an open house on Wednesday, April 24, so it could go quickly, but right now it’s still available according to the listing, from Shonnette Yearwood of Compass. Is it a good deal for the location?
