Whaddyaknow, looks like there's a vacancy in Rossmore Avenue's landmark Mauretania Apartments. Designed in 1934 by Milton J. Black for Wizard of Oz Tin Man Jack Haley and his wife, Flo, the Streamline Moderne complex contains ten units. Up for grabs is a one-bedroom on the upper, street-facing level. Per the listing, the unit for lease measures 1,300 square feet and features hardwood floors, original lighting, high ceilings, rounded walls, crown molding, built-in bookshelves and closets galore, a formal dining room, a private deck/patio, and a washer/dryer.
On the down side, parking is "optional," and it seems safe to assume that exercising said option will cost you. Another factor that may deter potential tenants is the fact that the building is owned by Art Deco Apartments, a company that's been the frequent target of ire from former tenants. But if those aspects don't faze you, the pet-friendly unit is available immediately for a monthly rent of $2,500.
