This top-floor apartment for rent in a Fort Greene Neo-Grec brownstone has one or two-ish bedrooms and some of the charms of a Victorian home in a landmark district. The brownstone exterior is grand and the building entrance has a mirror and original staircase. The apartment features original marble mantels in the living room and master bedroom. Other classic details are crown molding, window shutters and wood floors.
The all-white kitchen is partly open to the combined living/dining room. The bathroom, not pictured, is off the master bedroom and includes a stacked washer/dryer. The rear bedroom is good size and also has a large closet.
The second bedroom-slash-den is in the small room above the building entrance. Only six feet and two inches wide, it might be better suited as an office or additional storage than a second bedroom, but it does have a street facing window and a closet.
299 Clermont Avenue is a circa 1879 brownstone in the Fort Greene Historic District that belongs to a row of four designed by Brooklyn architect Robert Dixon, says the designation report. The facade has pronounced pediments above the doorway and parlor-level windows, incised friezes within the window surrounds, and a bracketed wooden cornice.
Listed by Jerry Minsky and Jason Abrishami at Douglas Elliman and available starting December 1, it is located close to Pratt Institute, Fort Greene Park, and the G and A, C trains. At the asking rent of $3,100 a month, would it work for a professional couple or small family?
