The Underhill Avenue apartment is also near the 2 and 3 at Grand Army Plaza, as well as the restaurant and shopping strips on Flatbush and Vanderbilt avenues.


If you're a renter seeking a classic Brooklyn vibe, this three bedroom, one bath in Prospect Heights may fit the bill. The ground floor apartment is in a 1900 townhouse that looks newly renovated inside. It comes with access to a well-maintained backyard, is only three blocks from Prospect Park, and is also a short walk from the 2 and 3 trains at Grand Army Plaza, as well as the B and Q trains at 7th Avenue.

The apartment is listed by the owner which means there's no broker fee. The owner is asking $4,425 per month.

Despite the unit's ground floor position, the interiors appear bright, with restored hardwood floors in the open plan living area.

The kitchen is sleek and offers a good amount of cabinet space despite its small size, though there isn't a ton of room for meal prep. It's outfitted with high-end stainless steel appliances. 

The three bedrooms vary in size. The third, at the rear of the building, can only be reached through another bedroom and lacks a closet, so you may find it better suited for an office or nursery. 

The third bedroom also opens up onto the landscaped backyard and patio.

Note also that there's an in-unit washer and dryer and central air.

The listing mentions that the apartment was renovated to green building standards and also has LED lighting, triple-pane windows, and a new ventilation system.
