Talk about rental goals: this grand Park Slope mansion, just outside of Prospect Park, is chock full of historic details and could be yours for $29,000 a month. Located at 21 Prospect Park West, it is a Renaissance Revival home designed by the Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris. It’s been restored to its single-family grandeur, with over 7,000 square feet (and eight bedrooms!) practically dripping with features like stained glass, carved woodwork and marble fireplaces. Oh yeah, and there’s a diner inside that looks straight out of Happy Days.

The prolific and talented Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris was known for designing some of the first multi-unit apartment buildings in the borough. This is one of them, at 109 South 9th Street. Built in 1890, the Williamsburg building is decorated with stone, brick and terra cotta alongside oversized, bracketed cornices. Inside is a massive, four-story space with nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms. To make the whole building look good, it’s going to require a big renovation from any buyer.

Once upon a time, Clinton Hill was a neighborhood of mansions designed by some of Brooklyn’s most prominent architects. Many have since been demolished and replaced with either townhouses or apartment buildings. But this one at 186 Clinton Avenue still stands, on a stretch that was known as the neighborhood’s “mansion row.” Montrose Morris, a prolific Brooklyn architect, designed it in 1891 for William H. Beard, the son of the third wealthiest man in Brooklyn, William Beard, Sr. It’s so massive it’s been divided into several apartments—the property being offered is only one-half of the mansion, which holds eight units.

Bed-Stuy‘s most expensive single-family home has a set of new photos that gives us a closer look into the work that’s been put into bringing this storied home back to life. Designed by Montrose Morris and modeled after a Gilded Age Vanderbilt mansion along Fifth Avenue, this spectacular house known as ‘The Kelley Mansion’ was built for water meter magnate John Kelley in 1900. The mansion was a favorite hangout of Kelley’s pal President Grover Cleveland and has for the better part of its existence been affectionately referred to as the ‘Grand Dame’ of Hancock Street. The home fell into disrepair over the decades, but savior Claudia Moran, a retired ad exec, dedicated a great deal of her time and money restoring the mansion after buying it up for just $7,500 in the 1980s. It’s now selling for $6 million.
