This Clinton Hill 1-bedroom rental comes with a fantastic price and a layout we’ve never seen before. Perched atop a cute, pink-shingled home in the heart of the neighborhood, the apartment has a cozy, nest-like vibe. We’re into it—here’s why.

Address: 438 Grand Ave. #3

Price: $1,950

Size: 1 bedroom

Neighborhood: Clinton Hill

Best feature: The apartment spans the top floor of Victorian-style wood frame house built in 1899. With an iron sidewalk fence, a big, inviting porch all done up in pink and green trim, and an attic gable, this house is straight out of Virginia Lee Burton’s “Little House” book. It’s a throwback to another era, and it’s completely adorable. Inside, the unit offers a spacious layout and some quirky features, like sloped ceilings and tiny dormer windows.

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a 1-bedroom in Clinton Hill is $2,800. At $1,950, this Clinton Hill 1BR rental is a full $850 less than that.

Biggest drawback: Essentially, this is the attic apartment. While adorable and quirky, it’s undeniably lacking in amenities. There is no dishwasher, no laundry, and very little counter space.
