Here at One Block Over, we’re usually hunting for
good deals on housing in New York City. Sometimes, though, we all just want to window-shop. To help with that, here are our five favorite eye-candy rentals currently available. None are cheap, but all are a feast for the eyes. So browse away, or check out more apartments for rent.
These oversized dome pendant lamps help bring lots of attention to this West Chelsea studio‘s dramatic, rough-hewn aesthetic. Not sure you could pull off this look yourself? Not to worry. The studio comes furnished and can be yours for a mere $4,000 per month.
Anywhere else gilded crown moldings, Victorian chandeliers, crushed velvet and fur trim could turn into a tacky mess, but they’re on point at this Park Slope 2-bedroom duplex that is renting for $6,250 a month.
Whoever owns this Hudson Square 2-bedroom has got to be in fashion. The mix of patterns, bold statement art pieces and carefully curated bookshelves achieve an elegance you really can’t buy. You can, however, rent the space for $8,500 per month. Do yourself a favor and click through all the images on the listing page.
This 2,000-square foot, 2-bedroom in Chelsea is set up for easy entertaining. The walls of the living room are paneled in Madagascar Ebony, a nice complement to the mirrored whiskey bar and red accents of the upholstery and jukebox. For $11,000 per month, we hope the records play for free.
This parlor floor 1-bedroom is straight out of Edith Wharton-era NYC. Overlooking Washington Square Park, the apartment has pedigree and class, complete with 14-foot ceilings with crown molding, two marble fireplaces and fine antiques everywhere you look. Above the bed in the master suite a sign reads “What Would Oprah Say?” Perhaps, “You can do it! Go ahead and pay $9,500 per month for this rental?”
