If you’ve ever dreamed of living à La Bohème in a garret, this ground-via rental in a circa 1871 brownstone can be your location for a non-bohemian rate. With its squared-off bracketed door hood and pediments, mansard roof, and an oriel window on the primary ground, seventy-three Willoughby Avenue is an average New York Second Empire brownstone of the mid to overdue nineteenth century. Located in Fort Greene, a few blocks from the historic district, it has a one-bedroom for lease on the top floor in the back of the dormers. The list gives a floor plan, even though window placement and bathroom and kitchen layout don’t believe the images. In any case, there’s a marble mantel in at least one of the rooms, the bedroom, but the living room isn’t always shown. The floor plan specifies six closets, but at least one is configured differently within the pics. The toilet is proper, with black and white tiles, a clawfoot tub, an exceptionally new sink cupboard, and two doorways — main to what we can’t say precisely. The kitchen appears respectable, and there’s a pantry; however, there are no cabinets, only open cabinets. The list notes the kitchen is inside the manner of being updated by the resident proprietors with “a brand new dishwasher, cabinetry, and counter.”
While there’s possibly no room for a desk, a photograph shows a fringe of what may be a shelf or, much more likely, a passthrough to the dwelling room. There are brief home windows on three exposures, making for a probably ethereal feel — although we wonder about the temperature in intense weather. Overall, the gap looks nicely stored and brilliant, with simply enough charm from historical info, baseboard moldings, and doorways.
Are you feeling romantic? The vicinity is not bad, near Fort Greene Park, Dekalb Avenue, and the Clinton-Washington G prevent; however, at $2,800, you’re technically supposed to have an income of $112,000, making this most possibly a couple’s percentage. The list is from Terry Naini and Emilia Sultan of Brown Harris Stevens.
