It Appears BK Heights Is Worth $11,500 A Month For A Rental

We saw sticker shock when Brown Harris Stevens listed the furnished carriage house at 21 Grace Court Alley for $11,500 a month in September 2012. Apparently someone else saw… home. We noted that lights are on in the 3-story unit Tuesday evening, and a neighbor confirmed that folks have moved in, indeed willing to pony up $138,000 a year.

The carriage house at the end of the alley offers three bedrooms, 1.5 baths and six rooms total, with parking, central AC, skylights, a fireplace, W/D and three outdoor areas. BHS said in its listing (which has been removed): “Beautifully appointed and lavishly furnished. A wonderful home with a spectacular eat-in kitchen, dining room and beautiful living space. Built for elegant living, entertaining and privacy.”

    That was the ++asking price++…. Who knows how much they’re actually paying.

    How about 157 Columbia Hts – it was for rent for $18K a month; empty a few months but it seems to be occupied now. Not sure what the final rent was.

    At 11K its a bargain a private house in Brooklyn Heights.

  • NorthHeights

    It’s very expensive to buy or rent an entire house in Brooklyn Heights. This doesn’t exactly strike me as surprising news (or news at all)

  • Heightsman

    Is there any better way for a family to experience New York than a house one subway stop from Manhattan?

  • NorthHeights

    I assume you mean “a house IN BROOKLYN one subway stop from Manhattan”

    Who wants to live in Long Island City, the Bronx or Jersey City??

    @ Heightsman – Neighborhoods in NYC do not get better than Brooklyn Heights a variety of reasons make this so much better than Long Island City, Bronx, etc.

    When I had been a kid a fictional TV character named Patty lived in Brooklyn Heights – The Patty Duke Show – “Patty only saw the sights a girl could see from Brooklyn Heights…”

    Brooklyn Heights is the greatest place to live!

    The fake Heightsman at it again….

    Hey, I didn’t know there was a Heightsman already. I’ll change it…

    “Beautifully appointed,”if you don’t mind the guts of the house not always functioning so well.

    What is the definition of a SlumLord? I think the old lady who owns 21 Grace Court Alley might fit the bill.
