‘Pet Friendly’ House With Porch, Deck, Yard, A/C in Kensington Wants $5,000 a Month

by

In Kensington, at 273 East 9th Street, this standalone clapboard two-story is looking for a renter. The quaint, attractive house has many modern updates and some original details and could work for a family or roommates.

The home’s lovely restored front porch gives the property a good deal of curb appeal and leads into the large, updated, all-white living room, where the period notes are limited to moldings around the windows. Here there are convenient touches like built-in coat hooks by the front door and bookshelves cleverly incorporated into the stairs.

The hardwood flooring continues throughout this level, where there’s also a half-bath and open kitchen with Carrara marble counters and a herringbone tile backsplash. A nearly full wall of glass sliding doors opens to a deck. Wide steps lead to the yard, which has grass and a horizontal fence.

The three bedrooms share the upper level. All are spacious, including one sprawling, bay-windowed master bedroom with a full wall of closets. They have tin ceilings, moldings, original floors and built-in shelving. The floor holds the home’s only full bathroom, which has marble tile and a tub. There’s a skylight in the hall.

The finished basement has one huge recreation room, a laundry room with washer and dryer, and new mechanicals, including central air, controlled by Nest thermostats.

Located on a sweet block populated by many similar standalones, the house is 7.5 blocks from the Q train at the Beverley Road station.

The house (which last changed hands in 2015 for $1.425 million) is available for move-in July 15. It’s also “pet friendly,” according to the writeup.

Corcoran’s Maggie Ross, Betty Lee and Erin Beth Larkin have the listing. Asking rent is $5,000 a month. Decent deal?
