A Sunny Williamsburg Home

Brick UndergroundAugust 03, 2016

This full-floor rental sits in a picturesque red brick townhouse on the south side of Williamsburg, close to some of the neighborhood's best nightlife spots, as well as to the L, J, M, and Z trains, and the ferry. You'll find classic prewar details in the layout and millwork, but also contemporary finishes and upscale appliances thanks to a recent renovation.


Listed by CORE for $3,550 per month, the apartment's price skews a bit high for the neighborhood, but it does offer a lot of space for a one-bedroom.


You'll have to walk up two flights, but the top-floor apartment boasts separate living and dining rooms, custom crown moldings, and new hardwood floors throughout, lending an elegant, fresh feel to the space.


The sunny eat-in kitchen looks chef-friendly with its generous prep and storage space; the stainless-steel appliances are new and include a dishwasher.


The already-spacious bedroom is adjoined by an attached home office, and both rooms are illuminated by large, south-facing windows. The bathroom, off the kitchen, comes with a walk-in shower but no bathtub; nonetheless, it's at least newly renovated with white porcelain and subway tiles.


You'll find laundry in the basement, and some pets are permitted. The layout of the unit makes it particularly well-suited to those who work from home and need a little more breathing room—and separation from the workspace—than the average one-bedroom might offer.
