This prewar Flatbush apartment is attractive and offers a good deal of space, even if the railroad layout limits its practicality for a roommate share. It’s on the second floor of a three-story brick townhouse at 2542 Bedford Avenue, close to Flatbush Avenue and not too far a walk from the shops and restaurants on Cortelyou.
The place has four potential bedrooms, but three of them are set in a line, railroad style, so it’s a rare three roommates, or even family members, who are going to want to make bedrooms out of them.
You could make the front one a living room and make the room off the kitchen a dining room and you’d have a good setup for a two-way share, with one person getting a well-lit two-room suite in the front. Of course, you could do a whole lot of other things with it as well.
Either way, the ceilings are high and there are parquet and wood floors, French doors, a beamed ceiling and original moldings. The kitchen is renovated and offers decent cabinet and counter space; no dishwasher though.
In the downside department, there’s a lot of brick wall to be seen out the windows, and the subway is a bit of a hike at nearly eight blocks away.
Listed by Erika Sackin of Douglas Elliman, the place is renting for $2,500 a month. Any takers?
