For those seeking a particular kind of classic Park Slope experience, this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath rental will check a lot of boxes. It's in a historic brownstone replete with prewar details, like original parquet floors, antique fireplaces, and high ceilings. A recent renovation means that you'll also enjoy up-to-date appliances, fixtures, and finishes, plus there's outdoor space on both levels.

Listed by Compass for $7,650/month, it's at the high end for the neighborhood, not a shock given how many New Yorkers dream of living in a Brooklyn brownstone.

The living room (see main image) is a cozy spot, thanks to its woodburning fireplace and dark wood mantlepiece. Large windows brighten up the space (and highlight the decorative mill work.) There's a large, sunny separate dining room that makes for an impressive spot to host dinners, and the kitchen features more warm tones, plentiful storage space, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. 

The master bedroom looks spacious, with enough room for an office nook, and includes a luxe en-suite bath with a double sink, bidet, large shower, and limestone tiles. The second bedroom includes its own bathroom as well, equipped with a Whirlpool tub and striking marble floors.

In addition to a garden on the first floor, you'll have access to this private terrace, which appears large enough for seating and overlooks the neighboring townhouses. The rental also includes an in-unit washer and dryer and central air.
