Brooklyn townhome description

Our four-story 1863 brick rowhouse is on a quiet, tree-lined street in a landmarked Historic District that is one of the most convenient locations within 'Brownstone Brooklyn' (see google streetview link below). This large apartment is a lovely, charming, furnished two-bedroom unit with hardwood floors throughout (~1100 sq. ft.) - the perfect combination of class and amenities.

This 2BR gem has a full modern kitchen, free WiFi, a shared garden with flagstone patio, wrought-iron table/chairs, and barbecue grill. There is an LCD TV w/ DVD player (over-the-air channels only: over 50 channels, including ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, PBS, and many more), as well as a music docking station/speaker (compatible with iPod, iPhone, and other music players).

One bedroom is tastefully furnished with a queen-sized cherry bedroom set. The other bedroom contains a bunk bed with firm mattresses designed for adults (plus a trundle mattress for a youth). A sleeper sofa in the living room brings total accomodations to up to 7 persons. Perfect for families and children!

You can find everything you need in the neighborhood: outstanding restaurants (it's a foodie hotspot!) - a small sampling from our favorites: James (1/2 block away), Ideya (1 block), The Vanderbilt (3 blocks), and Franny's (3 blocks); cafes/coffee shops; boutique shops; gourmet groceries; beautiful streets to explore; Prospect Park; Brooklyn Museum; Brooklyn Botanic Garden; Brooklyn Academy of Music; Crunch gym; Barclays Center; and so much more!

There is plenty of free on-street parking (off-street pay parking garage nearby).

Given our close proximity to major subway lines (1 block away) and short 15-min ride to Manhattan, the apartment is perfect for those who want to explore New York while enjoying the charm of brownstone Brooklyn!

We know that traveling can be stressful at times and our goal is to make your stay with us a memorable and comfortable one. Get one of the best deals around in one of the coolest neighborhoods of New York!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
This building is our home - we live in a duplex upstairs from the rental unit. We chose to make this property our home because the neighborhood and location are wonderful - not only is the neighborhood itself great, but it is a quick and easy 15-30 minute subway ride to the key sites of Manhattan.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Close to major subways B,Q (1 block away); 2,3 (3 blocks); 4,5,N,R (6 blocks). It is about a 15 minute subway ride to lower Manhattan or Union Square. Within 15 minute walk to: Prospect Park, Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Grand Army Plaza (farmer’s market), and Barclays Center. Close to market, pharmacy, and charming shops of all sorts. MANY great restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops in 2-15 minute walking range.
