How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

If you're not quite ready to buy a home, but you'd like plenty of space to call your own (and have a fairly generous budget), this Williamsburg rental might be a good fit. The triplex townhouse spans 2,100 square feet, and with three bedrooms and three baths, there's room for a family or roommates to spread out and enjoy some privacy.

You'll also have two options for outdoor space: A large balcony off the second floor, and a big backyard. Listed by Citi Habitats for $6,500 per month, the rental can give you the feel of homeownership without the commitment—potentially good news in a neighborhood that will be impacted by an L train shutdown in a couple years. 

The open-plan living area (see the main image) has a straightforward design, with bright white walls that could serve as a blank canvas for creative types. There's enough room for a dining area next to the kitchen, which features stainless-steel appliances but looks a little short on counterspace (hence the island pictured here, we'd think.)

The two bedrooms pictured here look like they offer ample closet space; the listing notes that the master includes an en-suite bath, and all three bathrooms are full ones with soaking tubs. 

 

On the lower level, you'll find a den that looks like a solid hangout spot for entertaining (or somewhere to send your kids when they're getting on your nerves). And the backyard is large enough for outdoor dining and sunbathing once summer rolls around. Other perks of the house include an in-unit washer and dryer and private rooftop access.
