This luxe Cobble Hill duplex has space to entertain—and a private backyard

We're not sure what's in the architectural air these days in Cobble Hill, but lately, we've noticed a lot of stunning duplexes in the area. One more to add to the mix: this 2.5-bedroom parlor-level duplex with its own private garden.

Per the listing, it's previously been used as an owner's unit, but is now on the market as a $7,650/month rental. It has two bedrooms, with one smaller room set up at the moment as a home office/study (note the large windows and exposed brick detailing):

The owners are apparently looking for someone for a spring move-in, and while pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis, they might ask for "some reasonable pet deposit" in addition to the regular security deposit, per the listing. 

As for the kitchen, it's being described as chef's kitchen, and features a kitchen island, Dacor oven, indoor cooking grill, and a large dining area that leads right out into the living room:

There's a full main bathroom upstairs (complete with soaking tub, extra outlets, and defogging mirrors), as well as a half-bath on the garden level, along with a laundry room that's been converted from an upstairs kitchen area:

We're not sure about the listing's billing of the place as "urbane and hip modern," but the apartment is fairly sleek, and the backyard would be pretty ideal for entertaining (or letting a small-ish dog run loose). What do you think: Worth paying more than $7000/month for this spread, or is it too rich for your blood?
