A townhouse on the market is pretty rare in Williamsburg—this is the neighborhood better known for loft apartments and waterfront condos. But this single-family townhouse at 296 Manhattan Avenue is now on the rental market for $13,995 a month. It has been designed with the hipster in mind, with plenty of exposed brick, wooden ceiling beams, and even “locally sourced” hardwood floors.
The house boasts a total of four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. The master bedroom has a particularly unique design, with a dramatic triangle of exposed brick as well as special lighting fixtures. The hardwood floors throughout the home look more rustic than historic.
Why aren’t there more hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern? The cool floor design distinguishes the kitchen, along with a raised ceiling and recessed lighting.
The kitchen itself has “vintage inspired appliances,” according to the listing, which include a six-burner gas range with a black hood. (Even the fridge looks cool!) Even more reclaimed wood was used for the shelving, which contrasts nicely with the white tile backsplash.
There aren’t any photos of the outdoor space, but the listing touts two terraces off of the rear facing bedrooms and a full garden. The property is also located two blocks from the Graham Avenue L train, and is surrounded by the hip businesses of East Williamsburg. If this isn’t one of the coolest properties in all of North Brooklyn, we don’t know what is.
