Since it last sold in 2016 for $2.35 million, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse at 12a Monroe Street (located right on the Clinton Hill, Bed-Stuy border) has undergone some key layout changes to maximize the home’s narrow 14-foot width and make it feel as spacious as possible. Now on the rental market seeking $8,500 a month, the 2,568 square-foot home boasts eight marble mantels, pocket shutters, wide plank floors, a gorgeous center staircase, and an expansive 52-foot backyard.

You’ll enter into the high-ceilinged parlor floor, comprised of a living room, and a kitchen/dining room in the back of the house. French doors lead from the dining area to a new deck with stairs to the garden below, which gets shade from an old-growth oak tree in the back. The front halls have been removed throughout each floor so that all the main rooms can span the full width of the house.

As the listing notes, stair positioning is key in townhouses and this one benefits from a beautiful center stair with curled railings and wide, wooden steps. It brings you up to the top two floors, where there are two bedrooms on each floor and recently renovated bathrooms featuring marble cabinets and gray tiles. The full-floor master suite is on the top floor, where the original beamed ceiling and bricks are exposed.

The kitchen used to be on the ground floor but now that level is comprised of two finished rec rooms and a full bathroom.
