3 bed 2 bath prewar apartment in Brooklyn

We have a large 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment that we’d like to rent out Jan-August 2019 (flexible dates). The apartment is perfect for a family: a master bedroom with a king-size bed, a kids' bedroom with a bunk bed (pack and play also available), and a third bedroom with a queen-size murphy bed that converts into a desk.

The apartment is in Kensington/Ditmas/Flatbush neighborhoods. The blocks right around this apartment are primarily residential, with bike paths and plenty of trees, but the vibrant neighborhood also has everything you need within walking distance. We absolutely love this neighborhood as parents with young children. There are three playgrounds within a 10-minute walk, and it's about a 15-minute walk to Prospect Park. The apartment is just a few blocks away from the shops, restaurants, cafes and bars of Courtelyou Road in Ditmas. The restaurants strike this amazing balance of having great, interesting food but also welcoming children (during the earlier dinner hours).

- Fifth floor apartment in building with an elevator
- F & Q subway lines are just a 7-minute walk from the apartment
- Heat and water are included in the rent; electricity is also covered up to a limit in the summer to account for varying A/C usage
- Laundry is in the basement with plenty of machines (uses a prepaid card so you don't have to search for change)
- Bike storage room in the basement - we have four spots for bikes that you are welcome to use
- Recently updated kitchen with high-end appliances, a full-size dishwasher, tons of counter space and storage space (and all the cooking gadgets you could need)
- Window AC’s in each room.
- High speed internet with Apple TV in the master bedroom
- Apartment is baby-proofed and currently set up for a 4- and 2-year old (though we minimize toy clutter, so it's not overwhelmingly for little kids)
- Furnishings and cleaning supplies are as natural as possible for health/safety (natural latex mattresses, low-VOC paint, natural wool rugs, etc)
- No pets allowed
- No smoking

Note that the photos I took don't really do it justice. You can see the professional real estate photos that show the size and light of the space better (note that the furnishings and decor have changed!) here: https://streeteasy.com/property/1291706-415-ocean-parkway-5g
