This four-bedroom duplex in Prospect Lefferts Gardens has a lot of character, a fair amount of space and no fee. It occupies the lower two floors of a fetching early 20th century brick row house at 350 Parkside Avenue, with a limestone center window bay. Brownstoner’s Suzanne Spellen described the stretch of row houses on the block as “among the best in the entire neighborhood.”
There’s a lot of nice detail within that’s rare for a rental, including inlaid parquet floors, coffered ceilings, pocket doors, moldings, and a mahogany paneled dining room (which seems to be used as a living room) with built-in cabinetry. Note also the inglenook, an alcove with a tiled fireplace and built-in benches on each side.
There’s a renovated kitchen with white countertops, a penny tile backsplash and a door leading out to a small rear deck, with steps down to the garden. The latter has a pair of big planting beds — and presumably you’ve got the run of it.
There’s no floor plan, so the exact layout is a mystery. The pictured bedrooms all look nice; some have bay windows and are pretty sizable. The listing promises “tons of closets” and a washer and dryer.
The Q train at Parkside is quite close, as is Prospect Park; in the winter, the skating rink at LeFrak Center is a short walk.
