A Park Slope duplex with room—and rooms—for the whole family

Share this Article

This duplex rental in a brownstone at 393 10th Street in Park Slope has “family-friendly” written all over it, and a not-too-steep price tag of $4,995 a month. Along with its location in the stroller-heavy Brooklyn neighborhood, there are four bedrooms (three upstairs and one down), so no one has to share space or—by extension—stuff; two full bathrooms (one upstairs and one down) so no one has to wait for a bath or a toilet; plus two walk-in closets for storing a family’s worth of clothes, shoes, toys and equipment. 

The master bedroom has tin ceilings and a pretty view

The lower level has a large kitchen that doubles as a dining room and an equally large living room, with a space between the two that can function as an office or homework area. Inside the downstairs bathroom is a washer/dryer, the jewel of any family rental. New windows, hardwood floors, decorative moldings and tin ceilings are also bonuses (natural light and charm!).

The new kitchen has a dishwasher but lacks counter space

On the potential downside, the kitchen lacks counter space and storage (though a freestanding kitchen island can help) and there are a lot of stairs (the duplex is one flight up via a private vestibule and there’s, of course, another staircase to the top floor). 

The apartment is accessed through its own vestibule.

At $4,995 a month, it may even be a bit cheaper than other four-bedrooms for rent in Park Slope, according to StreetEasy. And that may be a small price to pay for access to Prospect Park, which is just a couple of blocks away, and PS 39, the small and increasingly popular neighborhood school for which this apartment is zoned.
