On one of the neighborhood’s most beautiful historic brownstone streets where Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy meet, the upper triplex of a turn-key renovated townhouse at 22 Brevoort Place is for rent for $6,000 a month, complete with nanny suite/kitchenette, roof access, and a sweet Brooklyn backyard.
Though there isn’t a floor plan provided, the layout of what is usually the owner’s unit–and we’ll assume there’s a garden-level rental as well–is fairly standard for a 19th-century townhouse, even after a pristine renovation. This four-bedroom home seems a bit narrow, but high ceilings add to the feeling of grandeur. Historic details have been preserved, such as a marble fireplace mantel, ceiling moldings, and inlaid wood floors. The home’s front parlor is suitably charming, and a great way to get to know the place.
The triplex has at least one deck; stairs lead down to a shade-dappled grassy backyard.
A totally on-trend kitchen offers Wolf, SubZero and Miele appliances, marble countertops and island seating with its historic flourishes. The long hallway joining the kitchen and the parlor is just wide enough for a dining table.
Upstairs are the bedrooms, with original moldings, pocket shutters, built-ins and decorative marble fireplaces. The chambers beautifully color-coded, cozy and spacious.
Included on the top floor is a basic kitchenette that allows the uppermost rooms to function as an in-law/nanny suite, though the kitchen can be removed to create a fifth bedroom. There’s a washer/dryer in the unit as well.
