                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1988

                      About the owner: Currently developing and brokering bars & restaurants, music venues, retail and commercial in prime Williamsburg, Brooklyn; own active real estate firm; interest in fine art, music, antiques; classical singer; art dealer, knowledge of German language and culture; frequent traveler to San Francisco and Munich.,,,,More info upon request.

                      Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                      This is a large house in the City, but the sun, river air and gardens make it feel like the country. (I had lived in Tribeca, Manhattan, and feel like I bought the garden and the house came with it!) I live on the parlor, or second floor, and the 1st floor is often available for guests. It is quiet for New York, restful, out of the way and private - and 2 blocks away from everything!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Fresh breeze drifts in from the river - there are actually windows on all 4 sides! The garden is full of the scent of roses, lilies, honeysuckle, violets, lavender and herbs just outside the windows. And there is a fire pit and BBQ in the yard. It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for expresso and newspapers, cappucione and croissants, and sit at sidewalk tables and meet the locals! 2 blocks away is Bedford Avenue, epicenter of the area, with every type of shop, bar, gallery or restaurant. World class food, film, and music venues are just blocks away, and it's safe to walk at all hours.
