Here’s an attractive owners duplex for rent in Fort Greene that has modern amenities throughout, with details isolated to the parlor floor. Located at 246 Carlton Avenue, it occupies the parlor and garden floors of a four-story Italianate townhouse and is 1.5 blocks from Fort Greene Park.
It comes fully furnished, and a lease ranging from three to 24 months is available. This means it would appeal to someone who needs a spot for a shorter period of time, possibly for a temporary work stint or a stopgap between living situations.
Those furnishings are nothing to sneeze at either, with some mid-century pieces, Jean Tinguely-like paintings and a grand piano.
That piano is located in the parlor level living room, which has nearly a wall of bookshelves and a fireplace. The dining room, which has bracketed crown moldings, a ceiling medallion and a marble mantel, looks out onto the deck through floor-to-ceiling windows.
The thoroughly renovated galley kitchen, adjacent to the rear parlor, has bamboo cabinetry, top-notch utilities and deck access. A refrigerator is tucked into a custom shelving unit which composes the back wall.
All three bedrooms share the garden level, which also has the unit’s only bathroom. The master is long and narrow with garden access. The one pictured bathroom has wall-to-wall tiling and a partially enclosed tub.
The finished cellar has storage space, laundry, mechanicals and is set up as a home office and conference room.
Available for a November 1 lease start date, the unit does not allow cats (dogs are a maybe, according to the listing). Bill Kowalczuk of Warburg Realty has the listing; the ask is $11,000 a month. Is it worth it?
