One-Bedroom in Grand Stuy Heights Limestone With Window Seat, Parquet Wants $2,300 a Month


Here’s a one-bedroom up for grabs in a grand limestone on one of the most prime blocks in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. As one would expect in a mid-1890s Romanesque Revival/Renaissance Revival townhouse designed by noted 19th century architect Magnus Dahlander, the apartment has some elegant features.

There are parquet floors with inlaid borders throughout, some original door and windows casings, French doors, and a built-in window seat running under a bank of windows in the bedroom.

The two-room space doesn’t appear overly large in the photos, but the listing puts it at 725 square feet. Apparently a rear unit on the third floor of a six-unit building, the apartment is split level, with the bedroom located up a two-step staircase from the living room.

For a rental, the kitchen and bathroom are both pleasant. The former has a skylight and pass-through into the main living space, with cabinets underneath and the opportunity for counter seating. The bathroom is all white, with subway tile and a pedestal sink.

The listing says the unit has “generous closet space” — we think we see three but can’t be sure without a floor plan. The listing does not mention laundry in the unit or building, but does say the apartment is south facing and gets a lot of light.

With a 1956 certificate of occupancy specifying six units, there’s also the possibility this unit is rent stabilized, although the listing makes no mention of its status.

One more thing to note: June 1 is the move-in date, so if you need something immediate, keep looking.

Listed by Zaghir Ahmed of MNS, the unit is asking $2,300 a month. Like what you see?
