It is a palace worthy of a royal borough.

A fully furnished bohemian chic home in Williamsburg just hit the market for $35,000 a month. It will be the most expensive rental in Brooklyn, according to StreetEasy, and the most expensive in Williamsburg’s history, The Post learned.

What do you get for that very high price?

The mansion, known as Casa Powers, is a converted warehouse and loft at 139 Powers Street with six bedrooms and four baths spread over approximately 4,200 square feet.

The 2,500 square foot expansive private backyard is a rarity in the city. It also has its own roof.

The pre-war unit has been wonderfully renovated and features modern amenities such as 15-foot high ceilings, exposed brick, custom-built library with sliding ladder, vines, and expansive skylights.

“The entire home is rooted in comfort and style, with huge plush rugs, deep sofas, and a vast array of cool places to wine, dine, and entertain,” the listing reads. A great place to host a , hide away, get cozy and relax.”

That’s $7,000 more per month than the Fort Greene townhouse at 232 Carlton Avenue, which has the second-highest rent in the area, according to StreetEasy.

Back in Williamsburg, this home’s open kitchen is complete with a breakfast nook, state-of-the-art Smeg refrigerator, open shelving, commercial sink, and live-edge wood island illuminated by a ceiling skylight.

The upper mezzanine mezzanine is complete with an additional living room area and an office overlooking the lower level.

At the end of the property is a handcrafted wooden ‘tree house’ with two floors connected by a walnut wood staircase and two additional bedrooms.

Another flight of stairs leads up to the 3rd floor with two full bedrooms.

“Casa Powers and its interiors came together organically over time, slowly built from scratch,” homeowner Sidney Bramstein told The Post. “As collectors of old treasures, refurbished items and unique artifacts, we have collected many works of art and design from around the world.”

According to Bloomstein, she and her husband decided to rent a long-loved and, of course, impeccably decorated residence to spend more time outside the city.

“Our lives have changed a lot since we bought the building,” explains Bramstein. “[My husband] Brett and I had twin babies, Lennox 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 lease the full width for the $35,000 price tag, you also have the option to rent the Casa Powers warehouse wing for $20,000 per month. It includes 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a backyard for a total of 2,406 square feet of living space.

You can also rent a loft wing from Casa Powers for half price $10,000 per month. Spanning 1,800 square feet, this wing features two bedrooms, one bathroom, and private roof access.

Casa Powers is also available for short term rentals. It is also available for nightly events, gatherings and movie screenings.
