This may be a traditional Brooklyn brownstone on the outside, but the duplex rental occupying its parlor and garden floors looks as modern as it gets. The home, located at 284 Warren Street in Cobble Hill, underwent a gut renovation in 2007 and has been occupied by the same owner ever since. They’re now renting out the bottom two floors for $8,500 a month, and any new renter is going to like one thing in particular, especially with summer coming up–a double-height wall of glass that frames the private, stone-paved backyard.
The garden floor holds the living room, with its wall of glass, one bedroom, and a large storage space. Garden levels are typically dark, but this modern and lofty layout brings in tons of light. The comfortable space is decked out with a gas fireplace and customized shelving.
Up to the parlor floor, on a sleek quarter-turn staircase, you’ll find a combined kitchen and dining room that looks down to the floor below. The renovation ensured that the striking glass wall provides light to the entire apartment.
There are three bedrooms total, one downstairs and two others upstairs. The master, on the lower level, has its own private bathroom. The other two bedrooms, in the rear of the parlor floor, share three closets between them.
Finally, a look outside to the private terrace behind the wall of glass. The high fence and plantings offer plenty of privacy for an outdoor meal. The neighborhood of Cobble Hill, too, is known for being quaint and quiet. This home is located on a brownstone block between Smith and Court Streets, the two main drags of the neighborhood.
