There’s an unusually gracious two-bedroom apartment for rent in Windsor Terrace on the first floor of a circa 1900 standalone house with a bay front and a porch. With a large dining room and nicely landscaped garden, it lends itself to lounging and entertaining.
Located at 18 East 7th Street two blocks from Prospect Park, it has newish hardwood floors laid out horizontally, white walls throughout, and original window casings and baseboards.
The living room, dining room and kitchen are all in the rear near the garden and connected by large open doorways, including an arched one. Garden access is through a door and a few steps down from the rear kitchen, which has modern cabinets, two windows, and room for a table.
The large dining room has space for all of the dining table leaves. The living room is on the smaller side but feels open with two windows and two large doorways.
The only drawback here may be the arrangement of the bedrooms, both toward the front of the house. They are separated by a set of French doors, and you have to walk through the smaller, second bedroom to get to the master.
That makes the second bedroom good for a small child or an office, perhaps, but less so for a roommate. The main bedroom, however, has a three window bay. (The photos also show a wall of storage, but it appears to be furniture belonging to the current tenant, not built in.)
We don’t see a photos of the bathroom, but the listing says it has a window, and there’s additional closet space in the flat and laundry in the cellar. The pictures show a sizable backyard with two patios, trees, and well-mulched flower beds.
The building is a simple two-story wooden structure with a bay, porch, heavy cornice and what appears to be composite siding. It shows up on historic maps by 1905, but is not there in 1890. PropertyShark puts the square footage of the apartment at around 1,000.
Neely Moore of Compass is showing it by appointment starting on July 30, for a September 1 lease date. It’s asking $2,900 a month. Worth it?
