Verandah Place must be one of the most photographed little streets of Cobble Hill, and the 19th century brick homes that line it are a huge part of its charm, along with its position overlooking Cobble Hill Park. One of those little houses, No. 6, is up for rent. While the total monthly nut is not exactly modest (though there is some room for negotiation, we hear), it does include four floors of living space.
Not all of the houses on this scenic stretch in the Cobble Hill Historic District were built as stables; some were originally single-family homes, as is the case here. This particular pre-Civil War house belongs to journalist Cara Greenberg, who pens Brownstoner’s Insider column.
In addition to the 19th century features, such as marble mantels and two wood-burning fireplaces, there are some nice design touches in the kitchen and baths, as befits an interior-design writer.
The house is set up with living room and study on the parlor level; kitchen, dining, full bath with washer/dryer and bedroom above; and three more bedrooms and another full bath on the top floor. The garden level has a third full bath and two rooms that could be used as work space or more bedrooms as needed.
The kitchen has custom maple cabinets, granite counters, an apron-front sink and bright green tile backsplash. The one bath pictured is on the skylit top floor, and it has green mosaic tile work and white fixtures.
There’s also some outdoor space: A stone-paved rear garden includes planting beds and room for outdoor dining.
Listed by Zoe N Saaf, Cara Sadownick and Cheryl Nielsen-Saaf of Corcoran, the house is renting for $10,500 a month. What do you think?
