If your family needs more space and privacy while everyone works and studies from home, you might want to consider a Brooklyn townhouse. Renting an entire townhouse is pricey, but a good option if you want more room and don’t want to buy or move to the suburbs.

On average, Brooklyn townhouse rentals are less expensive than ones in Manhattan. And they fit the needs of the Covid era: Your living space is spread across multiple levels, plus there’s private outdoor space, your own washer and dryer, and often room for home offices. You’ll also have more peace of mind than in a large apartment building since you won’t have to share common spaces and elevators with neighbors. 

So, if you’re looking to rent an entire townhouse, here are five townhouses for rent in Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, Red Hook, Windsor Terrace, and Weeksville.
