We've found the "dream" Brooklyn townhouse and it's for rent!

Unfortunately, it is only available three months at a time but we're pretty sure that is all you'll be able to afford considering it costs $22,000 per month.

The townhouse is nearly 8,000 square feet with two kitchens, four and a half bathrooms and four fireplaces. Thankfully, the high price means the home is furnished (baby grand piano included) and a maid service comes twice a week.

The Mott Bedell House was built in 1840 for a ships chandler who lived on Wall Street. It is a historically significant home with unusual six by nine-paned windows, a Greek Revival brownstone doorway and a Flemish bond brick front. It is considered a prominent home in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, which was established by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965.

The rooftop terrace has incredible views of the Manhattan skyline and of the 500-year-old tree living in the backyard.

This listing is so unusual that it attracted the attention of the New York Times in a recent article about the popularity of Brownstone rentals.
