This top floor aerie has sloping ceilings that might be a challenge for some prospective renters, but it does offer a bonus home office, private outdoor space and in-unit laundry. It’s also located just a few blocks away from Prospect Park in an 1880s Neo-Grec brownstone at 825 President Street.
The main living space isn’t overly large but it has attractive wide plank floorboards and room for a dining table. A skylight and sliding doors out to the deck bring light into the living room as well as into the kitchen, which bumps out into the space and has a passthrough. That kitchen has white cabinets and counters, stainless steel appliances and a swath of wall with a chalkboard finish in case you need to jot down a recipe.
On the exterior, the brownstone has a deep, bracketed cornice with windows set into the frieze band. Those small windows are in the bedroom, which also has a sloping ceiling — the listing notes it’s three feet at the lowest point. There’s also more wide plank floorboards and an attached windowless bonus space that could be used for storage, since additional closet space isn’t mentioned, or as a home office.
The windowed bath has white tile and fixtures and holds the washer/dryer.
The four-unit building allows cats but no dogs. This unit is listed for $3,200 a month with Shyda Hoque of Engel and Volkers Brownstone Brooklyn. If outdoor space isn’t a priority, there is a slightly larger two-bedroom unit in the building renting at $3,995 a month. What do you think?
