If you’ve ever harbored a certain kind of Brooklyn townhouse fantasy–but aren’t ready for the responsibility (or the mortgage)–this is about as close to the dream as it gets. And though it might require a tiny bit of imagination (picture it with furniture!) this just-renovated triplex rental at 198 Warren Street checks all the boxes–charming restored original details, five bedrooms (though one is tiny) if you’ve got a big family or just want to share the rent, 2,500 square feet of living space, a brand-new kitchen, central A/C, and outdoor space. And you’re in one of Brooklyn’s most desirable enclaves in Cobble Hill on a picture-postcard block near, as the brokers say, all.

The parlor floor has a classic layout with high ceilings, marble mantels, wedding-cake molding, perfectly-restored wood floors, and the standard front and back parlor configuration. The formal dining room has more than enough room for guests and their guests, or it can be a casual everyday gathering spot.

At the back of the home, a sunny renovated kitchen (according to the listing the gut renovation is “just finished and never lived in”) offers a wall of windows overlooking the charming back gardens of Cobble Hill. Stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinet space await lazy breakfasts and late-night snacking.

Upstairs, bedrooms also have the standard row house layout, which means large rooms (except that one third-floor bedroom, though it’ll make a perfect nursery, dressing room, or office) and plenty of closet space. There’s at least one working fireplace and the same warmth and restored historic details throughout with the added convenience of  laundry.

Also freshly updated, baths (one full bath on each of the upper floors) are clean and spacious; this one features a glass-walled rain shower.

Though there’s no backyard access–a slight blemish on this picture of South Brooklyn perfection–but this large, 180-square-foot deck off the second floor is the perfect addition to a master suite. It offers more than enough space for entertaining, sunbathing, or dining al fresco (though you’ll have to trudge upstairs with the dishes).

As previously mentioned, this prime spot in a covetable historic neighborhood is the picture of Brooklyn charm, with the F and G subways two blocks away, great restaurants in every direction, Atlantic Avenue, Smith and Court Street shops, the Columbia Street Waterfront, Cobble Hill Park, Trader Joe’s and several other great neighborhoods nearby.
