Will a (rent stabilized) Williamsburg address make a shower in the kitchen hip?

It’s always fun when yet another listing with a shower in the kitchen surfaces; 6sqft has covered versions of the quirky New York City phenomenon previously. The East Village and LES are the usual suspects, and this Bed-Stuy brownstone home makes the kitchen shower look positively chic. But once again, lovely, expensive Williamsburg draws the short straw. For a mere $1,574 a month ($1,604 for a two-year lease), you, too, can discover the joys of the shower beer.

To be fair, the one-bedroom at 18 Skillman Avenue has some definite selling points. It’s rent stabilized, for one, and the neighborhood is popular, convenient (except for that year without the L train) and fun.

The one-bedroom pad just a block and a half from the Lorimer L is an actual three-room apartment, albeit a railroad-style one with consecutive rooms. There are some nice hardwood floors in the bedroom, high ceilings, and, as per a listing for the apartment, “Great charm!”

Rooms are big, with lots of windows (though the clothes rack in the listing photos hints at an absence of closets).

Yes, the shower stall is in the kitchen. And you’ll have to pay a 15 percent brokers fee for the chance to enjoy those shower beers. Does two in the ‘burg mean the cold-water flat is becoming a thing?
