In a sea of cookie-cutter rentals, there are a rare few that look like home–or even like an interesting place to live. Located at 481 Greene Avenue in what seems to be the new neighborhood of choice for the city’s interior design professionals, this two-bedroom brownstone apartment goes far beyond the average Bed-Stuy rental when it comes to good looks. The gut-renovated 1,100-square-foot first floor unit is one of only six, and it comes with the rare bonus of a private back yard.
Located in western Bed-Stuy near the Clinton Hill border, this chic Brooklyn pad features exposed brick walls, 11-foot ceilings, oak flooring, and original detail throughout, including an ornate floor-to-ceiling mirror from the early 1900s (not pictured, sadly). A pair of massive wood double doors is lacquered a sophisticated black. Recessed and stylish accent lights are exactly where you’ll need them. The same sophisticated black was used for the kitchen cabinets, which accompany shiny new appliances and a sleek white breakfast bar. An open living area lies just past the kitchen.
Next in line is the dining area; there’s no floor plan, but we’re thinking this is just past the living area at the front of the apartment.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bath, and there’s lots of closet space. The listing promises that “you will have a rare private backyard space;” though it’s not pictured either, it sounds like a Brooklyn brownstone dream to us.
