Rental pick of the week

Rent a four-bedroom Brooklyn townhouse that's picturesque inside and out

If you're looking for room to spread out, this four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath delivers. Built in 1901, the triplex retains prewar features like decorative fireplaces, high ceilings, and crown moldings, and includes a deck and garden in the back. Plus, the home is on an especially picturesque, brownstone-lined block of Carroll Gardens, and conveniently near the F and G trains.

Listed by Corcoran for $11,000 per month, the rent's certainly steep even given the size of the home, but note that it does come furnished. 

The living room (see main image) features an eye-catching marble mantle, and large windows that should keep the space sunny even though it's on the ground floor. There's another decorative fireplace in the eat-in kitchen—an unusual period touch; the space looks similarly bright and inviting, with ample cabinetry and a view onto the backyard. 

Each of the bedrooms pictured in the listing look quite spacious, with high ceilings and multiple exposures overlooking the scenic street below. The master has yet another decorative fireplace, bolstering the home's sense of coziness, and the third bedroom comes with built-in bookshelves that help with storage. 


The property's history is evident in the bathroom pictured here, with its black-and-white tiling and a classic clawfoot tub in great condition. And the backyard, while it looks like it could use a trim, also provides plenty of space for gardening and entertaining on warm days.
