This is Your Dream Apartment

The location can’t be beat - Lafayette Avenue at the corner of Cumberland Street - with Fort Greene Park and the weekly Farmers’ Market one block away, and all of the restaurants and bars that characterize the neighborhood within a block as well. The apartment itself is large enough to be a one bedroom, and has a recently updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. 


And then, there’s the deck.


400 square feet of prime, private outdoor space, hanging over Cumberland Street, and offering insane views of the surrounding neighborhood. 


$2100/month.  Will not last!  Contact me now to schedule a showing.

Fort Greene 1 Bedroom Bonanza!!

I have a number of one bedroom apartments available in Fort Greene right now.  Ranging from $2250/month to $2895/month, and three of the 5 options have access to outdoor space.

This brownstone gem is a garden apartment on Adelphi near Myrtle. The interior space is gorgeous, with a decorative fireplace, pressed-tin ceilings, dark-wood flooring, and a brand new kitchen. Enjoy shared access to the back garden as well.  $2250/month. 


The second option is on Washington Park, with Fort Greene Park directly across the street.  The main feature here is the large, private backyard. 


The apartment itself features hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and a marble-tiled bathroom. $2650/month. image

Also on Washington Park, I have a large third floor unit with soaring ceilings, parquet flooring, crown moldings, and a dishwasher. No outdoor space, but at $2400/month and in a great location, this is priced to move.image

On South Portland and Lafayette is a one bedroom apartment with semi-private outdoor space in an elevator building with laundry in the basement and an on-site super. The kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances including dishwasher.image

The backyard is shared with the other two first floor apartments, but the area directly outside of this unit is dedicated to the unit. image

$2895/month. Location is amazing, with Habana Outpost, Stone Home Wine Bar, Mo’s, The Prospect, and Fort Greene Park a block away.

This weekend would be a great opportunity to find the Fort Greene apartment of your dreams. Contact me for a showing today.

Outdoor Space in PRIME Fort Greene!

It’s rare for one of the four ground floor apartments at this building on Lafayette and South Portland to hit the rental market.  These apartments share a large, shady backyard, each unit enjoying a more or less private section of the yard.

The available unit also features the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances everyone loves. Laundry in the building, and the G and C subways are less than a block away, as are Habana Outpost, Stone Home Wine Bar, Mo’s and much more. 

PM for a showing, will go fast!

Clermont Ave Stunner!

This parlor floor, floor-through apartment features 12’ ceilings, exposed brick walls, a decorative fireplace, hardwood floors, a separate kitchen, and an amazing amount of storage. 

The shared backyard is a private oasis from the bustle of the city. The building is on Clermont Avenue, between Lafayette and Dekalb, a tree-lined street of 1860’s-era brownstones and New Hampshire bluestone sidewalks.  The Brooklyn Masonic Temple and the weekly Brooklyn Flea Market are at one end of the block, while Dekalb Avenue’s restaurant row - featuring Hoja Santa, ICI, Brooklyn Public House, Roman’s, Black Iris, Dino, Colonia Verde, Chez Oskar, Sushi D, Martha, Madiba, Walter’s, and more - is at the other. 

Showings throughout this week, and the unit is available for a 9/1 move date.  $3088/month.  Pm or email me at bblessinger (at) aptsandlofts (dot) com for details.

It doesn’t get any more ‘Fort Greene’ than this…

This is a 3 bedroom stunner on the corner of Adelphi and Dekalb.  As you can see, the landlord is finishing up a gut renovation of this gorgeous, sun-filled, 1000+ square foot apartment.  The open plan kitchen and living area features a massive kitchen island, brand new stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, and a decorative fireplace with marble mantlepiece.

The master bedroom features a huge bay window and alcove, plus lots of storage. 


Chez Oskar, Colonia Verde, Dino, Sushi D, Madiba, and Walters are at your doorstep.  Fort Greene Park is two blocks away.  Contact me now to schedule a showing of this dream apartment.
