Not far from Park Slope’s Old Stone House, this one-bedroom appears well kept, with white walls, hardwood floors, period details and recent updates. It’s on the second floor of a late 19th century red brick three-family at 271 6th Street.
Likely built as an apartment house, the property was advertised in 1916 as one of a pair of “three-story three-family brick houses” for sale as part of the disposition of an estate. The building has a ground-floor entrance, sharply angled bay, brownstone details and wood cornice with sawtooth banding.
The unit appears to have five rooms, including a living room with decorative stone mantel, bay window and pocket doors. With moldings, wood floors and two windows, the bedroom appears sizeable.
Two interior rooms without windows are set up as a dining room and the kitchen. The latter has white cupboards, a dark stone counter, dishwasher and wood floors.
A small side room with a window could work as an office or for storage. The bathroom isn’t pictured but includes a claw foot tub and updates, according to the listing, from Elaine Gay and Michael Sabin of Townsley & Gay.
There is no broker fee and the unit is asking $3,550 a month. What do you think?
