Rent in a sunny Williamsburg townhouse, near plenty of transportation options

Share this Article

This full-floor rental sits in a picturesque red brick townhouse on the south side of Williamsburg, close to some of the neighborhood's best nightlife spots, as well as to the L, J, M, and Z trains, and the ferry. You'll find classic prewar details in the layout and millwork, but also contemporary finishes and upscale appliances thanks to a recent renovation.

Listed by CORE for $3,550 per month, the apartment's price skews a bit high for the neighborhood, but it does offer a lot of space for a one-bedroom. 

You'll have to walk up two flights, but the apartment boasts separate living and dining rooms, custom crown moldings, and new hardwood floors throughout, lending an elegant, fresh feel to the space. 

The sunny eat-in kitchen looks chef-friendly with its generous prep and storage space; the stainless-steel appliances are new and include a dishwasher. 

The already-spacious bedroom is adjoined by an attached home office, and both rooms are illuminated by large, south-facing windows. The bathroom, off the kitchen, comes with a walk-in shower but no bathtub; nonetheless, it's at least newly renovated with white porcelain and subway tiles. 

You'll find laundry in the basement, and some pets are permitted. The layout of the unit makes it particularly well-suited to those who work from home and need a little more breathing room—and separation from the workspace—than the average one-bedroom might offer.
