Brooklyn townhome description

*** PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY

*** Please use the 'EMAIL OWNER' button instead of phoning. We reply VERY promptly.

Subway proximity is the highest priority for New Yorkers. The Lorimer L train to Manhattan and Metropolitan G train to downtown Brooklyn are half a block away at the corner at Union/Metropolitan.

Our 3-unit townhouse is perfectly situated on a quiet residential street yet just around the corner from Brooklyn's hippest new neighborhood: Williamsburg. The area is packed with cute restaurants and bars, from Peruvian steak houses to French bistros and even a German beer & barbecue. The neighborhood is also a magnet for young people moving to the city and an influential hub for indie rock, hipster culture, and the local art community.

We are amazingly close to downtown Manhattan, Times Square, Soho and Tribeca via the popular L TRAIN subway line that's just a 1-minute walk from the townhouse and then a 5 minute ride into Manhattan. We're at the LORIMER stop.

This apartment is on the third floor of the building with a private entrance. The living room is comfortable with all new furniture and two northern windows overlooking the private courtyard and carriage house behind the home. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything from wine glasses and coffee mugs to silverware, china,coffee maker and cookware so you should feel right at home.

The apartment can accommodate up to five guests: The bedroom has a queen bed which sleeps 2. There is a cozy little second bedroom, or 'den' off the main bedroom with bunk beds, a south facing window and privacy door for another guest.

There is also a self-inflating queen-size AeroBed that sleeps two and comes with sheets, bedding and pillows. Its built-in pump inflates in just 1 minute and deflates just as quickly. While this isn't a traditional mattress is is quite comfortable for extra guests, and can be easily set up in the living room.

The entire apartment has brand new furnishings, linens and kitchen equipment and is a perfect home base for your trip to New York City.

NOTE: We do have three rentals in this same townhouse if this one is booked. Check out Listing #318560 to see our Garden Apartment and Listing #321592 for our Parlor Apartment.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My partner and I both work in Manhattan and take the L Train in every day. I'm a television producer, my partner is in a Broadway musical every night, and our daughter attends 4th grade in the city. I'm from Toledo, Ohio and my partner is from Melbourne, Australia so we have LOTS of family and friends visiting us all year round who now stay in our rental apartment and use it as their home-away-from-home. We love helping them find their way around the city and will gladly offer you a few suggestions about NYC as well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                      We bought this townhouse in 2010 after living in the middle of Manhattan for 16 years and have fallen in love with our new neighborhood. Our previous neighborhood was very old-school residential with massive apartment buildings, while Williamsburg is filled with 3-story townhouses like ours where the neighbors all sit on the front steps and enjoy the street life. The huge influx of artists and young people who recently 'found' the neighborhood because of it's close proximity to Manhattan and relatively inexpensive housing make for a VERY interesting mix on the street and we love it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      What's great about staying in Williamsburg is the EASY access to all the major sites around NYC: Union Square Shopping and Farmers' market, Times Square, Broadway, Macy's, the Empire State Building, all the museums, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty. But what's really enjoyable and a real delight are the VERY walkable streets around us packed with both the old-world shops (the perfect cappuccino at Setti Pani bakery) side-by-side with the new art galleries, trendy clothing stores and fun finds (graphic comics books from around the world at Sparacino's). Dont leave W'burg without trying breakfast at House of Small Wonders - just around the corner on Skillman. Extra Queen size inflatable Aero Bed in all apartments.
