Here’s an apartment that might help keep the winter blues at bay. For those in need of sunlight, this Greenwood Heights rental has multiple windows stretched across two exposures and the building, at 259 21st Street, offers a roof deck and a location not far away from the scenic open space of Green-Wood Cemetery.
Originally constructed in 1904 as the St. John the Evangelist School, the T. H. Poole Company-designed building was closed to students in 1989. Work on the condo conversion was completed in 2005, with 39 residential units squeezed into the former education spaces according to the Certificate of Occupancy.
This first floor unit offers up high ceilings, wood floors and two bedrooms, one on either end of the apartment. The combined living and dining room boasts six windows across two exposures. The U-shaped kitchen is separated from the space by a granite-topped peninsula with room for stool seating. It’s also got wood cabinets and a dishwasher.
The largest of the bedrooms has another expanse of windows, an en suite bath and two closets; there are a total of five in the unit. There’s another full bath near the front entry and the in-unit laundry is located next to it.
It’s a pet-friendly building with a live-in super. Other amenities include the aforementioned rooftop deck which took the place of the former playground.
The apartment last sold for $1.08 million back in 2017. It’s now available for rent at $3,600 a month and listed with Michael Tannen, Kirra Caruso and Talia Magen with Corcoran. There’s no fee associated with the rental. Worth the price?
