On view today is a one-bedroom floor-through on the parlor floor of a Fort Greene brownstone. Listed by Jerry Minksy and Mina Kim of Douglas Elliman, it’s renting for $3,500 a month.
Which isn’t a great bargain for a one-bedroom, but it’s a nice one, in a nice-looking house. It’s got high ceilings, being on the parlor floor, and generous spaces.
The front room, identified as the bedroom on the floor plan, has some nice details and floor to ceiling windows, with a big pier mirror in between. That leaves the living room, in the middle of the apartment, with no natural light. Of course, you could always use the middle room as the bedroom — providing you don’t mind the front door of the apartment opens onto it.
But there’s plenty of light in the back, coming through a pair of tall windows and a pair of glass doors with a transom. There’s a deck on the other side of those doors, which makes for a nice peaceful-looking space back there. The kitchen has minimal cabinet space and a modest range that would not excite Daniel Boulud, but it’s cute and functional.
The biggest downside we can see is the bathroom opens off the kitchen. Not ideal, but tolerable.
There’s an on-site super, which is not typical for a brownstone. No pets.
Think it’ll move quickly at this price? Do you like the place?
