The rental at hand today is a one-bedroom apartment on the garden level of a brownstone at 36 Sherman Street, on a nice, tree-lined block in Windsor Terrace. It offers a couple of clear pluses: garden access and a grand living room full of detail that’s not standard rental fare.

That’d be the room pictured above, and you’ll no doubt note the inlay-bordered parquet floor, the decorative fireplace and wooden mantel with mirror, the bay windows trimmed in dark wood, and other original woodwork. It’s quite spacious as well.


Neither brownstone nor limestone nor brick, today’s pick is an Italianate frame house, which sits amid a row of such houses at 1323 Prospect Avenue in Windsor Terrace. A two-story, one-family home, it carries a price tag of $1,475,000.

For that sum, the buyer gets a three-bedroom duplex with a finished basement. It’s laid out in standard fashion: three bedrooms, one quite small, and a full bath on the upper floor. On the ground level is the living room, dining room, kitchen and a second bath.

The living room has bay windows and an original mantel. There’s a second one in the dining room, but no functioning fireplaces.


This two-bedroom is one of seven apartments up for rent in the Kestrel, the high-end, eight-story rental building at 33 Caton Place in Windsor Terrace.

Readers will recall that the Kestrel, which opened for business a year ago, drew some attention for bringing “luxury” style appointments and amenities – and matching prices – to the outer edge of low-key Windsor Terrace.

This one’s got two bathrooms, a large living room, a decent-sized master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a lot of nice floor-to-ceiling windows, a washer and dryer, and a kitchen swanked out with stainless steel, Caesarstone and dark-wood cabinets.


This one-family house at 205 Windsor Place in Windsor Terrace has some unusual and striking details. Check out the geometric Arts and Crafts stair railing in particular — we’ve never seen anything like it.

There is also stained glass, a center hall stair fireplace, and lots of other details. Baths and kitchens have been updated, although not terribly recently, from what we can see in the photos.
