While not large, this apartment in one of Brooklyn Heights’ most-stored mansions is elegant, with a carved marble mantel, unusually fine original moldings, and trompe-l’oeil bookcase wallpaper. It also overlooks the East River and has extraordinary views of New York Harbor and lower Manhattan.

The three-room one-bedroom is located on the third floor of 3 Pierrepont Place, built in 1857 and formerly home to tea merchant Abiel Low and his son, Seth, who grew up to be mayor of Brooklyn and, later, New York City . The windows are very tall and there is parquet in the front room, as well as lacey pierced crown molding in the bedroom.

The petite minimalist kitchen is easy on the eyes, with plenty of white and gray plain-front cupboards and white subway tiles on the wall. The compact bathroom is similarly thoughtfully designed, with a marble-topped vanity and white subway tile in the tub and shower combo.

There is one walk-in closet, central air included with the rent, and laundry on the floor below. Listed by Gemma Sokoletsky and Vicki V Negron of Corcoran, the unit is available for $5,800 a month. Worth it?
