Sprawling Crown Heights Kinko Duplex With Fireplace, Central Air, Nine Closets Asks $6K

Aug 15, 2023

Not much early 20th century detail survives in this Crown Heights Kinko apartment, but the spacious unit includes four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and nine closets, including two of the walk-in variety. There’s also a fireplace and picture window in the living room, a fenced backyard patio, and laundry in the cellar.

It’s on the lower two floors of 1015A St Johns Place in the Crown Heights North III Historic District. The circa 1907 building is what’s known locally as a Kinko house, a two-family comprising two duplexes, each with their own separate entrance. The proportions and layout are mostly intact, with

The updated kitchen has a dishwasher, and the largest bedroom is adorned with wall moldings. The top-floor bathroom has been recently renovated with a subway tile wainscot and modern deep tub.

The listing, from Joe Brikman of Compass, notes radiator heat is included in the rental price; a mini-split system handles cooling.

It’s priced at $6,000 a month. The upstairs unit is also available for rent for $5 less, marketed with a listing that uses the images and floor plan for the first-floor unit. The building has been in the same hands since at least 2012.
