If you’ve ever coveted living on a mews — and who among us hasn’t? — today’s pick ought to be of interest. It’s an entire mews house for rent on Verandah Place in Cobble Hill, the charming alley opposite Cobble Hill Park.
This particular mews house belongs to our own Cara Greenberg, Brownstoner’s Insider columnist and a longtime presence on the site. If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because the house was a rental of the day once before, in April of 2013.
Now as then, it’s a four-story house, 22 feet wide and 32 feet deep. (If you’re eyeing the facade photo and thinking that width figure is a mistake, note that the downspout runs down the middle of the house front.)
There are three bedrooms on the third floor; a kitchen, dining room and study on the second; and a living room and additional bedroom on the parlor floor. The ground floor holds a two-room studio with a full bath, which could serve as an additional bedroom (or two), or be put to some other use.
You’d expect a nice kitchen from an interior-design writer, and in this case you wouldn’t be disappointed. It’s got custom maple cabinets and granite counters along with a Sub Zero fridge and a Viking stove.
Other pluses: a pair of wood-burning fireplaces, a washer and dryer and a lovely garden.
Listed by Shinichi Morisawa, Cheryl Nielsen-Saaf and Cara Sadownick of Corcoran, the house rents for $11,500 a month, a not-inconsiderable sum. How do you like it?
