Sweet South Slope One-Bedroom With Mantel, Built-ins, Outdoor Space, Murphy Bed Asks $2,500

We cannot deny the empirical cuteness of this garden-level apartment. Located in a red shingle-sided house with a peak-roofed entry at at 19 Windsor Place in South Slope, it has wainscoting, tin ceilings and hardwood floors.

The front room has a mantel with an ornate summer cover straddled by white built-in bookshelves. The middle room has a Murphy bed bookended by more built-in shelves. And the updated eat-in kitchen has stainless steel appliances, wood cabinets, dark stone counters and a tin backsplash. A door leads to a private patio in the rear garden.

The classic bathroom has a clawfoot tub, vintage-style black and white tiles, pedestal sink and bead board. Outside the bathroom, there’s a stacked washer/dryer unit in a closet.

While technically speaking only the front room is a legal bedroom and the windowless middle room is a den, you will not be arrested if you choose to sleep in the latter, which also has doors and two closets, a floor plan from an old listing shows.

The wood-frame two-family house dates from the late 19th century — it does not appear on the 1880 map — and has had its stoop removed, based on the 1940 tax photo.

Listed by Peter Seymour at Halstead, the unit is renting for $2,500. Does it appeal?
