Listings: Clinton Hill Garden Rental - 119 Gates Avenue, Apt 1

New to the Listings section of the blog, it's a garden rental in Clinton Hill with an open house tomorrow.  119 Gates Avenue, Apt 1 is asking $2,400/month for a great little 1BR garden apartment with access to a huge backyard with some nice topography to it...

The cherry tree's really something in bloom.  Oh yeah, and the apartment itself ain't bad either...

All in a sweet historic brick house from 1864 with nice details intact...

Slightly more renovated floor-thru's a few doors down can fetch higher than this, like at 110 Gates Avenue, where the duplex went for over $6K/month.  But with even rent stabilized 1BR's in Bed-Stuy and beyond getting $1,850/month, it's no wonder a prime Clinton Hill location like this commands over $2,000/month.  In the land of $2M-$3M fixer uppers, the $2,400/month floor-thru is a nice entry point.

Pro's:  prime Clinton Hill gardener's delight, close to the all the things that make brownstone Brooklyn great, quick walk to the C train, separate entrance and access to huge yard, pet friendly

Con's:  not a 2BR or 1+ office, not totally updated, en suite bathroom only

Ideally:  even if you think it's just shabby-chic, the open house is worth a peek for the backyard alone
