Garden Apartment in Crown Heights Townhouse With Yard, Mantel, Laundry Asks $2,750

by

A Romanesque Revival brick townhouse in the Crown Heights North III Historic District has a garden-level two-bedroom apartment for rent. The apartment at 928 St. Marks Avenue includes an original wooden mantel with neo-Classical columns and original tile surround in the living room. The interior features decorative crown molding, wood shutters, pocket doors, and egg-and-dart trim.

The living room, which has its original wood floor, is particularly ornate. The rest of the unit, which has replacement wood floors, looks more modern.

The u-shaped kitchen is open to the living room and has a stone counter, subway-tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances, including a dishwasher. The kitchen and hallway floors are tiled.

The bathroom has an undermount sink with a marble-topped vanity and backsplash. The rest of the room is not pictured.

Both bedrooms face the garden, and the larger one has a bay window and a closet. The smaller bedroom is at the end of the entrance hall, with a door to the garden on the side. In the hallway is a stacked washer/dryer unit.

The garden is planted with grass and bordered with mature evergreen bushes and roses. The imitation wood fencing is recently installed, and a steel spiral staircase leads down from the parlor level.

The Romanesque Revival brick townhouse is part of a row designed by Albert E. White and built circa 1897. The block and a neighboring block on Prospect Place make up an I.M. Pei-designed Superblock, part of a 1960s urban renewal project in Bed Stuy championed by Robert Kennedy, that had mixed results.

A one-time SRO that is being legally converted into a two-family, the house last sold in 2014 in an estate sale for $800,000.

Advertised for rent for $2,700 in 2015 and $2,500 in 2017, it’s now being offered for $2,750, listed by Malika Oyo at Compass. Is it the right price for today?
