One-bedroom With Shower in the Kitchen Wants $1,850/Month in Williamsburg

Yep, it’s a real one-bedroom, separate kitchen and all. Which is a good thing, because that’s where the shower is. It seems as if we just got done marveling at that Lower East Side pad with a similar setup; now, Real Estate Weekly informs us, we’re invited to behold this red hot value of a listing at 255 Powers Street. Let’s take a look at what’s included in that sounds-too-good-to-be-true rent in the L train-friendly environs of East Williamsburg.

255 Powers 5

According to the MNS listing (or listings, as there are two similar units on offer in the building), the sunny, newly-renovated one-bedroom home has a queen-sized bedroom, heat and hot water are included in the rent, and there’s a shared courtyard “for barbecuing in the summer.”

So about that plumbing. While the shower situation in that infamous LES flat consisted of an absurd tardis-like box plunked down next to an unfortunate-looking kitchen sink, at least this diminutive cabin de bain gets a nice open-plan treatment, complete with shiny chrome fixtures and faux marble tiles. Which is to say there’s no door. That resource was allocated to the adjacent loo, which we’d say is the better choice if we had to pick. So if you’re one of those multi-tasking types, you could technically host a dinner party while showering–the downside being that the shower is in the kitchen.

255 Powers 2

Is it legal? It likely is. Laws for a residential dwelling state that the shower or tub must exist, and that it has to be a certain size, but they don’t dictate where it lives, as long as rooms meet space requirements. And we’re reminded to schedule a viewing before this opportunity to part with nearly two grand every month to shave our legs while watching the stove is gone like the fleeting days of summer.
