Apartment in vintage 1840 townhouse, near the East River. All newly renovated, kitchen and tile bath with tub and shower, has original dark hardwood floors. There is a library/study area, nice sized living room (which accommodates a good quality raised inflatable queen bed, if needed), and bedroom with new queen bed. Windows on 4 sides, for lots of fresh air, very secure, yet near all the Williamsburg activity! Absolutely no smoking in the apartment or building.

Transportation, area info:
Transportation is very close: Short walk to the ''L'' train or ''JMZ'' trains - then 5 minutes to Manhattan, ferry is a 2 minute walk, buses, and car service arrives on call in 3 minutes to take you to Manhattan in 10 minutes, $10. We are nearly always available with info and tips, and the house and the neighborhood are safe and friendly, and the apartment is extremely quiet and secure. Maximum occupancy 2 or by special arrangement, minimum stay 3 days, $100 cleaning fee, and security deposit required in advance. (Also see VRBO #320337 for Apt #1, the garden apartment in the same building.) If there is no vacancy, ask about our new Atelier apartment with terrace, available October 1, 2014.

              • One of the great things about this apartment is its ':walk-ability'. It sits in the middle of a vibrant, international village, and you can go anywhere or get anything - on foot, or with a car that will affordably pick you up in 5 minutes and take you anywhere. But when you are at home, it is quiet and restful, and feels like the country - at least, to a New Yorker!...moreless

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1988

                              About the owner: Developing and brokering new restaurant, club and music venues in Williamsburg, and retail and commercial real estate in Brooklyn; classical singer, fine art dealer; knowledge of German language and culture; frequent traveler to California and Europe.

                              Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                              This is a large house for the City, but the sun, nearby East River air and gardens make it feel like the country. After living in Tribeca, Manhattan, I felt as though I bought the gardens and the house came with them. I live and work in the building and one 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 Guest House:
                              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. ....It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for newspapers, cappuccino and home made croissants, and sit at sidewalk cafe tables and meet the locals!
