From the outside, this corner Cobble Hill townhouse is classic Brooklyn with its 1899 brick and brownstone facade, ornate doorframes, and stately bay windows. But inside, it’s like stepping into a Parisian flat, with floor-to-ceiling arched windows, historic mantles and moldings, and a design aesthetic full of gold accents, lush fabrics, and an eclectic mix of classical furnishings. That said, the best part of this $21,000/month, five-bedroom rental is that it comes fully furnished.

Enter on the parlor floor into a large foyer, off which is a powder room and coat closet. The curved wooden staircase is everything you’d expect in a classic brownstone.

Facing the street is the incredible living room. It boasts a marble fireplace, a huge bay window with classical detailing, an ornate ceiling medallion, and an exquisitely curated collection of furnishings and decor.

In the rear is the kitchen, which has been fully modernized. Highlights include stainless steel appliances, a convenient island, a lovely open plate rack, and the other bay window which is the perfect backdrop for the kitchen table. Down a set of stairs off the kitchen is a large private patio.

Below, on the garden level, is a laundry room and a full bath. In the front is what’s labeled on the floorplan as a library, but is currently configured as the dining room. Here, there’s another marble mantle, as well as a painted tin ceiling. The cozy rear bedroom also has a tin ceiling.

On the third floor is the master bedroom, which has its own entrance to the bathroom. There’s also another bedroom on this floor. The fourth floor holds two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a small study.

The home is just two blocks from the Columbia Street waterfront, four blocks from the F and G trains at Bergen Street, and right near all the best restaurants in Cobble Hill. It’s available fully furnished as of June 1st and can be rented for as short as two months or up to one year, with utilities and cleaning as an extra cost. It’s pet friendly and can include a live-in housekeeper/chef for an additional monthly charge.
