When we wrote last month about a Craigslist post advertising a penthouse apartment at the Oceana Condominium & Club up for rent for the low, low price of $6,500 a month, we were a little disappointed that the listing didn’t have any photos.
At $6,500, the listing is easily the most expensive rental unit we know about in Southern Brooklyn. And, having seen some fairly swanky units at the Oceana – like this everything-Versace penthouse, or this surprisingly classy duplex - I was really hoping to catch a glimpse of the interior. Would there be the ubiquitous Italian marble and cherrywood floors? Would there be top-of-the-line appliances? How about a purple theme with gold trims, that much-loved color combo of royalty?
Alas, no. A new post is out on Craigslist, this time with photos. It’s rather pedestrian. Regular ol’ parquet flooring and a kitchen that looks like it’s out of any of the $150,000 co-ops available int he area.
Still, it’s a pretty nifty space. A $150,000 co-op isn’t likely to have a balcony with a sweet ocean view and an impressively-sized living room.
But for $6,500 a month? Can we at least get a petite lap giraffe with that?
Oh, and if you’re just looking to test out life in the luxurious Oceana building, there’s a two-bedroom unit on AirBnB for just $150 a night.
