Actor and comedian
3 stories, 2 bedrooms, 4,480 square feet
Chris Rock wants to be your landlord! The actor and comedian is looking for a tenant for his Brooklyn, NY townhome and you can move right in – if you have $7,950 a month to drop on the rental. Rock made a wise investment when he purchased the 4,480 square foot pad in the mid-90’s for $370,000. Now, similar-sized homes in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn are selling for more than a million dollars!
If you want to be Rock’s tenant and you got that kind of dough, you’ll be living in a limestone and brick townhouse with beautiful original details and modern amenities. The ground floor contains a two-car garage and a private apartment, ideal as guest quarters, with a large living room, a bedroom and a bathroom with a glass shower. The second floor is a massive open space with a half bathroom and a huge eat-in kitchen and dining area with brand new appliances. The top floor features a breathtaking master bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet, a master bathroom with double sinks and an oversized terrace.
It’s clear from the listing photos that Rock and his family aren’t living full-time in this home, but they’re not too far away. They have a massive spread in the fancy schmancy town of Alpine, New Jersey, which is just a short drive from New York City.
Pablo Cuevas of Douglas Elliman is the leasing agent on the property.
