Here’s a primely located three-bedroom duplex apartment for rent in a 1840s Greek Revival townhouse. Located at 56 Joralemon Street, it’s in a portion of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District locally known as Willowtown.
Occupying the parlor and garden floor, it would work nicely for a family or roommates, with a bathroom for every bedroom and plenty of outdoor space.
The upper level features a double parlor and a dark wood kitchen, which is tucked into a corner with plenty of overhead storage. A private deck leads to a stone-paved garden which appears to lack any actual greenery but is privately accessible for this unit.
Inside, there are original details, including crown moldings, plaster wall columns, a fireplace mantel, window shutters and pocket doors on the parlor floor. According to the listing, there is also a wood-burning fireplace.
All three of the bedrooms are located on the garden level, which, along with the bathrooms and deck, are not pictured. A fully renovated cellar is in use as a wood-floored recreation room, according to the listing.
The unit is not available to January, requires a two-year lease and pets are not allowed. Brian Lehner from Brown Harris Stevens has the listing, which is asking $7,200 a month. Is it worth it?
