Here’s a distinguished rental — an entire wood-shingled Victorian in Greenpoint, built circa 1870. A three-story with four bedrooms, it’s at 98 Noble Street, in the Greenpoint Historic District and on one of the nabe’s nicest blocks.
Suzanne Spellen wrote this one up as a Building of the Day back in 2011, noting the “charming 19th century” street, the fetching novelty shingles on the front and “the gabled roof and door hood, the elegant burgundy window frames, the original double doors.”
It’s pretty fetching in the inside as well, with high ceilings, wide-plank floors, tin ceilings, tall windows, crown moldings, a decorative marble fireplace and ample spaces.
The upper floors each hold a full bath and two bedrooms, including a nice master bedroom with an office nook, a trio of windows overlooking the street, a tin ceiling, built-in bookshelves and the aforementioned mantel.
The pictured bath has both a tub and a walk-in shower; the kitchen is bright, with a farmhouse sink and new-looking stainless steel appliances.
There’s a wooden deck, a lush backyard, central a/c and a washer and dryer in the basement. The location is prime, with the G train and much else nearby.
Listed by Jacob Cohen of Corcoran, the house is renting for $7,000 a month. Which is steep, but probably not too big a reach. What do you think?
