Board approval is required for this co-op rental, but the one-bedroom unit comes with prewar details and a recent renovation. While Prospect Park isn’t exactly just around the corner, it’s less than five blocks away, a nice stretch of the legs for a work-from-home break.
Dubbed The Dearborn, the six-story elevator building at 345 Montgomery Street in Crown Heights was completed in 1929. Designed by architects Berlinger & Kaufmann, the golden brick building has a column and pilaster adorned entry with an urn-topped balustrade.
This unit faces one of the building’s courtyard green spaces rather than the street, according to a previous sales listing. It has been updated since that listing, but the interior retains its period wood floors, wall moldings and picture rail.
All the rooms open off a long hallway, and the living room is large enough to fit seating and dining, plus it has an opening into the windowed kitchen. The latter has an expanse of white countertop, white subway tiled walls, an apron front sink and wood and metal open shelving above gray lower cabinets. Those cabinets wrap around underneath the window, providing even more storage.
The bedroom appears spacious: A floor plan from an old listing shows it is larger than the living room, although the measurements it gives indicate the bedroom is slightly smaller. The current listing mentions “practical built-ins,” which aren’t shown in the listing photo but it does show a spacious room and the prewar details.
The renovated, windowed bathroom has white subway tile walls, white fixtures and a penny tile floor.
The 102-unit building has laundry and a full-time super. In addition to the expected heat and hot water, rent for this unit also includes electricity. While there is no broker’s fee, the building management company requires a $250 application fee, and prospective tenants must be board approved.
Paul Pinizzotto and Rob Schlederer of Compass have the listing, and the rent is $2,300 a month. Is it a decent deal?
