Charming Two-Bedroom Rental in Prewar Kensington Building Asks $1,950 a Month

by

Here’s a charming two-bedroom apartment in Kensington that’s nicely-sized with some great period details. Located at 40 Tehama Street, it’s on the second floor of a six-story prewar co-op building completed in 1939.

There’s a lot of useful space here. The two bedrooms were once one large bedroom that has since been divided, and the second room is now big enough to be a child’s bedroom. But, since there’s a sliding barn door separating it from the living room, it could also be used an office. (It’s being advertised as a one-bedroom apartment.)

The main living space is spacious as well, big enough for a combined living/dining area. Plus, there’s a breakfast nook off the galley kitchen.

Speaking of the kitchen, it’s been updated, with a lot of storage space both above and below, a double sink and a washer/dryer. The aforementioned breakfast nook, which can fit a small table, is at the far end.

The bathroom has been updated as well, with black penny tile floors and a mix of white and sand-colored subway tile on the walls.

Two closets can be found in the larger bedroom, with another one right outside. There’s also a walk-in closet in the foyer.

Elsewhere, there are inlay floors in the main living area, along with moldings, a picture rail and an arched doorway from the foyer into the living room that’s fairly typical of the era.

The apartment is two blocks from the Church Avenue G train and 3.5 blocks from Greenwood Cemetery. Calvin Gladen at Compass has the listing; the asking price is a relatively low $1,950 a month. What do you think?
