Brooklyn apartment description

JUST-renovated garden level pad on terrific block, convenient yet quiet. Spanking new checkerboard floors, retro stove, flat screen TV, designer hard wood table and chairs. Spacious master bedroom with gloriously comfortable Ralph Lauren bed. 750 square foot space imaginatively laid out by artist/writer in residence includes small bedroom with a sleigh bed and comfortable-enough-to-fall-asleep-on sofa.

Find out why a New York Magazine cover story has declared Park Slope NYC’s 'most livable neighborhood.' “It’s blessed with excellent public schools, low crime, vast stretches of green space, scores of restaurants and bars, a diverse retail sector, and a population of more artists and creatives than even its reputation for comfortable bohemianism might suggest (more, in fact, than younger, trendier Williamsburg),” says MY Mag.

This ground floor apartment is smack dab in the middle, between north and south, between Fifth and Seventh Avenues, on a leafy block close to 2 subway lines, an easy stroll to Prospect Park, bakeries, restaurants, bars, clubs, wine shops. Within three blocks are La Bagel Delight, Zitos, Barbes, Colson's pastries, Chip Shop NYC, beautifully renovated public library with 75 ipads for youngsters. A wee bit further are Bell House, BAM, the Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, Barclays Stadium...

Oh and I almost forgot Manhattan is minutes away: Downtown is about 20 minutes on the train, Midtown allow 30 minutes, Upper east and West side more like 45 minutes. Two subway stations that will get you there are the F train and the R train. About a mile away (and an easy subway ride) is the Long Island Railroad, an above ground train that will take you to East Hampton, and all the other Hamptons, ferries to Fire Island and etc. A twenty minute walk away are the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, Atlantic Avenue, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, better known as BAM and other adventures. Declared the bloggiest part of the planet check out my friend Louise's only the blog knows brooklyn dot com and there are so many others ...

When you book travel bear in mind I can't guarantee check in before 3 PM; check out is by 11 AM.


Come and enjoy good living in New York City!

                              Brooklyn is the new center of New York City! The new mayor lives four blocks away. Come and check it out.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About the owner: In my current career as an author and an artist I have written and illustrated two children's books, Cinderella (As If You Didn't Already Know the Story) and Thumbelina, Tiny Runaway Bride. Both were published by Random House Children's Books and were praised by reviewers for the New York Times as well as lots of young readers. I have had a one woman show of art work (in Park Slope where else?!) and two more exhibitions are coming up in the near future. The books are illustrated with cut paper silhouette images and pen and ink which are also the mediums (media?) I work with as a fine artist. My sensibility as an artist and storyteller are reflected in my home. I am a dual citizen of the UK and the US with roots and family in both. Perhaps that too shows up in the apartment along with some places I would like to go, like Morocco and the middle ages. More is on my website, Google Barbara Ensor and you will find it.

                              Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                              We moved to the dreaded “outer boroughs” in 1989 for enough space to house a growing family. About a week later a light bulb came on in my head: It is better here. Life was sweeter, more civilized in so many ways. Here every building had its own personality, people smiled at one another, there were trees, gardens, history, a sense of community and continuity, all very reminiscent of Hamstead and Highgate the London neighborhoods where I grew up. Why then didn’t everyone move here? Since then everyone has. Particularly parents, writers, dog owners, anyone in the arts, particularly.... Well at this point particularly anyone who cares about their quality of life. Park Slope is no longer a place to go for more affordable space. It's where you move if you want a life. Twenty years later, divorced and with kids who have flown from the nest I can't imagine leaving. Where else could I go to the theater and be home an hour later warming my hands in front of the fire? My scaled down home is now a chic yet comfy springboard, I like to rent out for frequent travel. It has it all: high speed internet, a romantic garden, a working fireplace, a spunky bathroom, some whimsy, some grandeur, high ceilings, a great kitchen, a sculptural table hewn from a piece of mango and plenty of closets. What else is there?!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              No stairs in swanky spare luxe aesthetic apartment in terrific neighborhood with character, history, and amenities of all sorts including a park many prefer to Central Park (same designers).. Easy subway ride to Manhattan. ,
