Here’s an above-average rental located in a exquisite landmarked French Neo Grec brownstone in Bed Stuy, built in 1890. It’s a spacious lower duplex with three bedrooms and a private garden at 110 Macdonough Street, between Tompkins and Throop.
Likely designed by Amzi Hill, according to the desnigation report, the place is quite a beauty, with a kitchen and baths that are newly renovated and a load of Aesthetic Movement detail in prime condition. There are parquet floors, pocket doors, pier mirrors, a lot of mahogany woodwork and several wood mantels with colorful, multi-colored glazed tile.
One of the bedrooms is small, but the biggest one, sited in the front parlor, is palatial, with a chandelier, a large pier mirror and bay windows overlooking the street.
The kitchen is large, with a center island, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances and a closeted washer and dryer.
The only downside that jumps out is the bathroom setup. There’s a full bath downstairs beyond the kitchen; upstairs where the bedrooms are is a tiny half-bath with a separate shower stall next door.
Listed by Donna Myrie and Morgan Munsie of Halstead, the unit is renting for $3,900 a month. We’ve seen plenty of lesser places going for more than that; how’s it look to you?
