Bed Stuy Rental With Two Bedrooms, Mantels, in-Unit Laundry Asks $3,550 a Month


A top-floor two-bedroom for rent in a late 19th century townhouse in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District has mantels and other charming details as well as modern conveniences such as in-unit laundry.

Now divided into three units, the four-story brownstone was developed by Walter Clayton and debuted in 1892. Designed by noted 19th century architect Magnus Dahlander, the house is part of a row that extends the length of the entire block and blends the Romanesque Revival, neo-Renaissance, and Queen Anne styles.

The apartment’s living room has an eye-catching mantel, plaster crown molding, picture rail, window moldings, and a newer wood floor. The mantel is painted white and has a mirror, turned work, swags, green glazed tile surround, and summer cover.

A similarly outfitted room serves as the larger of the two bedrooms and has an identical clear-finished wood mantel with red-brick-colored tile. There is also a built-in wardrobe.

In the middle of the floor-through is an attractive, recently updated kitchen with skylight, tin ceiling, white cabinets, engineered marble counter, wood floors, dishwasher, and microwave over the stove.

Off the living room, the unit’s second bedroom can fit at least a twin bed or work as an office or storage. The one bathroom — en suite to the biggest bedroom — has been updated with white subway tile walls, white hex floor tiles, and a tub with shower. While there is no floor plan, the apartment has a washer/dryer, according to the listing, from Compass’ Chrisette Mignott.

The house was purchased by a couple for $2.3 million in September, and now the top-floor unit is available to rent for $3,550 a month. What do you think?
