Image of 125 Washington Avenue #2 Clinton Hill 2BR Rental

This Clinton Hill 2BR rental is practical and pretty.

This $2,700 Clinton Hill 2-bedroom combines major Brooklyn charm and serious value. The place comes with a spacious layout, turn-of-the-century touches, and a price far below the neighborhood average. StreetEasy editors are into it, and we think you might be too! Let’s take a look.

Address: 125 Washington Ave. #2

Price: $2,700

Size: 2-bedroom

Neighborhood: Clinton Hill

Best feature: Bright interiors and lovely, leafy views really set this place apart. Spanning the unit’s main living area are three tall windows with charming trim and unobstructed treetop views: The surrounding buildings are low and Washington Avenue is wide, so even during these short, low-sun winter days, ample light should not be a problem. In addition, the open kitchen contains stainless steel appliances and generous counter space, and the bedrooms are both big enough for a queen bed. In the bathroom, you’ll find an excellent example of turn-of-the-century subway tiling — the shower even offers a handy inset complete with smart black trim. Modern apartments may have more amenities, but character of this caliber is hard to find.

Why it’s a deal: The median rental price in Clinton Hill is $3,000. At $2,700 per month, this unit is $300 less than average for the neighborhood — and offers two bedrooms!

Biggest drawback: This section of Washington Avenue, while lovely and tree-lined, is a block from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and sees heavy traffic in the morning. Also worth noting: The closest subway to this Clinton Hill 2-bedroom is half a mile away at the Clinton-Washington Avenues G station. That said, the apartment offers great access to the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Pratt. For those commuting into Manhattan or elsewhere in the borough, alternative transportation options like Citi Bike and Revel abound in this section of Brooklyn.
