Is This the Most Expensive Rental in Brooklyn?


A circa-1829 Federal-style townhouse at 113 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights just might be the most expensive home for rent in Brooklyn ever. It’s asking $30,000 a month.

The listing, from Brown Harris Stevens, calls it an “important Willow Street home” and notes it’s on the National Register of Historic Places.

It had a makeover about a year ago, trading its asphalt shingles for clapboards, as the Brooklyn Eagle noted at the time.

It has some hefty competition — 11 Cranberry Street is asking $25,000 a month. 58 Hicks Street wants $17,500 a month.

The house at 113 Willow Street is not the oldest of the three — that claim goes to 58 Hicks Street, reportedly built in 1816. At 113 Willow Street, the open-plan parlor floor features a new kitchen as well as two woodburning fireplaces with original black marble mantels. A deck leads to a landscaped garden and bluestone patio.

Worth it?
