Bed Stuy Two-Bedroom With Retro Fridge Asks $3,050


This two-bedroom floor-through layers some charming vintage vibes along with an updated kitchen and bathroom. It’s on the top floor of a two-story brownstone at 335 Bainbridge Street, across from the Brevoort Houses.

Inside are wood floors, high ceilings, moldings, paneling, and original doors. The front and rear main rooms, shown configured as a living room and bedroom, both have carved and bracketed wood mantels with mottled straw-colored tile surrounds, mirrors, and original inserts.

The color palette continues in the updated kitchen and bath, where a mottled beige subway tile backsplash sets off a sizable run of white Shaker style cabinets, and a mahogany-finish vanity contrasts with swirly beige stone-look wall tile. The kitchen also boasts a retro fridge in Jadeite green and a matching circa-1900 decorative stove in the same color.

The second bedroom appears big enough for a queen size bed, going by its photo. Likely there are more than a couple closets in the unit, but the listing doesn’t specify.

The late 19th century row house last changed hands in 2014, and the exterior has been cleaned up considerably since then, photos show. The dwelling has strappy details on the cornice and around the parlor entrance, original ironwork, and a freshly blue-painted front door. The brownstone is now white, and the stone veneer basement story and dog-leg stoop have been resurfaced in gray.

The stair hall of the building looks attractive, with mahogany-finish wood paneling, stair, and built-in mirror with original hooks.

An open house is set for Sunday from 2 to 3 p.m. Listed by Chrisette Mignott and Perri DeFino of Compass, the rental is asking $3,050 a month. Worth it?
