It is a palace worthy of the Kings Quarter.
A fully-furnished bohemian-chic home in Williamsburg just hit the market for $35,000 a month, making it the most expensive rental in Brooklyn, according to StreetEasy, and the most expensive in Williamsburg’s history, a learned The Post.
What does this exorbitant price get?
Known as Casa Powers, the residence, a converted warehouse and loft at 139 Powers St., has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, spanning some 4,200 square feet.
A private backyard spans a massive 2,500 square feet – a rarity in the city. There is also a private rooftop.
The pre-war unit has been wonderfully remodeled and features modern amenities with 15 foot high ceilings, exposed brickwork, a custom-built bookcase filled with an extension ladder, climbing plants, and an expansive skylight.
“The whole house is steeped in comfort and style with huge plush rugs, deep sofas, and an overwhelming number of cool places to drink wine, dine, and entertain,” the listing reads. “It’s the perfect place to host friends or come home and stay comfortable and relax.”
That’s $7,000 more a month than the borough’s second-most expensive rental: a Fort Greene townhouse at 232 Carlton Ave., which has tiered decks and a backyard, according to StreetEasy.
Back in Williamsburg, the home’s open kitchen features a breakfast nook, mod Smeg fridge, open shelving, industrial sink and a wooden island lit above by skylights in the ceiling, the listing says .
Above, a mid-level mezzanine is complemented by an additional sitting area and study overlooking the lower level.
Other features include a bar and an extendable dining table that seats up to 22 people.
At the end of the property is a handcrafted wooden “treehouse” with two floors connected by a walnut wooden staircase, which houses two further bedrooms.
On the third level, via another staircase, are two large bedrooms.
“Casa Powers and its interiors have come together organically over time, slowly built from the ground up,” owner Sydney Blumstein told The Post. “As collectors of ancient treasures, salvaged objects and unique artifacts, we have collected many pieces of art and design from around the world.”
According to Blumstein, she and her husband decided to rent out their longtime and beloved — and not to mention, impeccably decorated — abode to spend more time out of town.
“Our lives have changed a lot since we bought the building,” Blumstein explained. “[My husband] Brett and I had twin babies, Lenox and Luna, and we’re looking for a good excuse to spend more quiet time with them in nature.
If you don’t want to rent the entire space with the price of $35,000, you also have the option of renting the Casa Powers warehouse wing for $20,000 per month. This includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms and the backyard, with a total of 2,406 square feet of living space.
You can also rent the Casa Powers loft wing for half that price at $10,000 per month. Spanning 1,800 square feet, this wing is fully furnished with two bedrooms, one bathroom, and private rooftop access.
Casa Powers is also available for short term rentals. It is also even available for nighttime events, gatherings and movie screenings, list notes.
Casey Lichtman and Meris G Blumstein – Sydney’s mother – of Corcoran own the list.
