Duplex With Harbor Views, Private Roof Deck in Brooklyn Heights Mansion Renting for $5,850

by
4

This Brooklyn Heights duplex is cooler than the average rental. It’s got a distinctive and attractive living space and views of the harbor and skyline from both its bayed windows and a rooftop deck above. The setting is notable as well — it’s on the top two floors of a Columbia Heights mansion (formerly the Squibb Mansion) whose rear facade faces the Promenade.

The living space is a symphony of exposed brick and wooden ceiling beams, with a wood-burning stove for heating. Sitting on the sixth floor, with the views out the window, it looks to have a bit of a treehouse feel, and there’s a large, wood-framed skylight back by the open-plan kitchen.

An internal staircase leads down to the bedrooms, one large and well lit, one smaller and with a single window. There’s a full bath down here and a half bath with a washer-dryer above. There’s central air.

A private exterior staircase — and quite a handsome one, rich in original mahogany — leads up to the roof deck. The building has 11 other units, but the listing calls the deck private, so presumably it’s all yours.

Speaking of stairs, this is a fifth-floor walkup, so those with knee problems should think twice.

Listed by Lisa VanderWoude of Halstead, the place is renting for $5,850 a month. A tidy sum for a two-bedroom, but like we said, it’s not your average rental. What do you think of it?
