Our Rental of the Week has everything you could want in a classic brownstone apartment — including a garden!

For quintessential Brooklyn Brownstone living, there’s no place like Park Slope. Tree-lined streets, a quiet residential vibe, and blocks and blocks of those elegant turn-of-the-century townhouses: Yes, please! All that tranquility doesn’t come cheap, but our Rental of the Week is a hidden gem. On the ground floor of a gorgeous brownstone, this Park Slope 1BR has loads of classic charm plus a highly coveted garden. Take a look!

Address: 136 Lincoln Place #GARDEN

Price: $2,500

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Park Slope

Best feature: The wainscoting and crown molding? The open kitchen with dishwasher? The private entrance? That amazing fireplace? All fantastic, obviously. But the best feature of this Park Slope 1BR has got to be the outdoor space. Like any classic garden apartment, this home has direct access to the outside, a fenced-in yard where you can grill and garden to your heart’s content. It’s reached through a very large bedroom, which boasts a walk-in closet and two big windows in addition to the door leading outside. And this home is fabulously located, on a block of other similarly fabulous brownstones. It’s a beautiful setting just a couple blocks from Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, and the Park Slope Food Coop.

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a Park Slope 1BR is $2,521, which puts our Rental of the Week right on target for the neighborhood (a smidge under, even). But this apartment offers so much more than a typical 1-bedroom. Compared to other places at the median price, it’s like getting outdoor space, a private entrance, and prewar charm for free!

Biggest drawback: First-floor living has a lot of benefits, especially during COVID, but it might not be for everyone. And nowhere in the listing does it specify that the garden is private — so it’s possible that the rest of the building has access to it as well. Luckily, there are only two other units in this lovely brownstone, so you won’t have to share with too many others.
