Neat and Clean No-Fee Four-Bedroom With Prewar Curb Appeal in Brownsville Asks $2,500 a Month

It’s increasingly rare to come across even a room in a shared apartment for less than $1,000 a person these days, and here’s a rental that works out to much less. It may not be a wonder of interior design, but this relatively affordable, spacious and clean apartment in Brownsville even has a little bit of curb appeal.

It belongs to a row of semi-detached pairs of houses whose brick facades are a mason’s delight. Borrowing motifs from the neo-Classical, the Italianate and the Romanesque Revival and rendering them in the graphic brickwork popular in the early 20th century, the facade has radiating arched voussoirs with keystones over the entrances, diamond-shaped and patterned stretchers of different sizes and colors between the windows, and arched and angled openings in an elaborate brick parapet symbolizing a peaked rooftop and chimneys.

With four bedrooms, each with two or three windows, an updated bathroom, a large renovated kitchen, and industrial-looking carpets in the private spaces, the second-floor rental apartment at 1055 Willmohr Street has workmanlike potential for a medium-size family or as a very inexpensive share. It’s unclear from the listing if the images of a driveway and garage mean off-street parking is available for this unit or not, but it seems likely.

At $2,500 a month with no broker’s fee, the apartment could work out to be a good deal at just over $600 per person as a four-person share or as a suitable place for a family with three or more kids. ACRIS shows the building recently sold to a buyer for $640,000 in an estate sale from a longtime owner who had been there since 1983.

Shloma Hecht of Citi Habitats is showing the place. The nearest train is the 3 at Saratoga Avenue, about a 10-minute walk, which is convenient for getting to Wall Street and stops along 7th Avenue. A good deal for your needs?
