Brooklyn’s Most Expensive Rental Ups Its Price to $29K/Month

The listing calls this 6,300-square-foot Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 11 Cranberry Street, for rent at $29,000 a month, “five floors of fabulous.com.” We’d hope it lives up to the praise: The meticulously restored and painstakingly designed historic home is available furnished, for short or long term, and the asking rent (up from last summer’s $25K monthly ask) makes it the borough’s most expensive rental.

The pretty–and pricey–neighborhood, transcendent bridge and river views, and proximity to Brooklyn Bridge Park already count for a premium. In addition to historic bones and soaring ceilings, the home has designer flair and up-to-the-millisecond modern conveniences like “an epic 5 zone Sonos music system” (though with five stories, we’re noting the lack of an elevator).

This picture of townhouse perfection begins with a predictably grand parlor floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and two fireplaces.

An equally grand formal dining room has seating for ten.

A chef’s kitchen in clean and classic white abuts a lovely sitting room that overlooks a landscaped garden complete with “one of the oldest and most lovely walnut trees in the Heights.”

The décor on the parlor level–done by noted designer Amanda Riedel–combines traditional architecture with chic modern style in shades of beige and white, featuring “costly imported rugs” and “exciting contemporary art by famed artist Michael Mut.”

On the garden level, two bedrooms and two bath suites are perfect for kids or guests. Or guests with kids.

The second floor offers a modern living room, a media/game room, and casual dining in the home’s more intimate upper kitchen which has a “Mediterranean feel.”

The third floor is where you’ll find the master bedroom suite with a spa-like master bath, walk-in closet, laundry, and a sitting room/lounge.

Up to the fourth floor, where “the sky and clouds meet the harbor.” The uppermost bedroom sports a nautical theme, its own private bath and–best of all–this gorgeous deck overlooking the harbor.

Cleaning is included in the rent; utilities, a pet fee, security deposit, and exit cleaning are additional. Says the listing: “We have created the perfect lifestyle.” And who could put a price on perfection?
