Rental of the Day: 527 East 8th Street


Here’s a very cute five-bedroom, two-bath house up for rent in Kensington, next to the border with Ditmas Park. The three-story detached home was renovated last year but still has a bunch of original details on the parlor floor, like wood paneling, a carved bannister and a lovely mirrored mantel in the dining room.

There’s a front porch, a huge backyard with a swing set and a finished basement that has a washer/dryer. The driveway on the side is a big plus too. One drawback is that it’s about nine blocks from any of the nearby trains — the Q at either Cortelyou or Newkirk, or the Ditmas Avenue F stop.

Also, one of the bedrooms can only be reached by going through another. Does it seem like a good deal for $4,900 a month?
