Property description

Our beautiful, art-filled garden apartment is now available for holiday rental!
Just two blocks from the subway and several grocery stores, smack in the middle of happening Harlem, walking distance to Columbia University, nine blocks from Central Park, it occupies the garden floor of the house we live in. We are a European-American family, and well familiar with both ways of life, so you will have no surprises!

Walk through your private entrance garden into the living room. With a large screen TV and a comfortable pull out couch, it can serve as your second bedroom. A large massive oak dining table accommodates up to six people for your own Harlem dinner party! The kitchen is fully stocked, and a dishwasher takes care of the clean up. A long art-filled gallery leads to the back of the apartment, were your bedroom overlooks the quiet garden. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub! And your huge walk-in closet will house all of your clothes along with the suitcases, skis, golfing gear, whatever!

Off the bedroom you can work in your own studio, a tiny enclave where you can write your emails, browse the web or start that novel you have been thinking of writing. Internet access is free! From the studio you can pop into the ivy-covered garden, with its hammock, large dining table and flowering vines.

Car: Not Necessary

Harlem is the most happening neighborhood in New York right now! Have you eaten at Red Rooster? Have you listened to Jazz at Cecil's? Have you gone to church at St. John the Divine? Have you visited Columbia University? Have you seen the New York Marathon? Have you checked out Amateur Night at the Apollo? Have you biked around Central Park? Have you been to the Guggenheim? All these are within 15 walking minutes from our house!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: World-traveler, born in Germany, multi-lingual, renowned designer with my own company- and yes, I renovated this apartment! We live right upstairs!

Why the Owner Chose Harlem (Central):
Harlem is my love. Since I was a kid, I thought of Harlem as this great, multi-cultural place- and I was not wrong! Anyone who lives in Manhattan would love to live here, with our beautiful old townhouses and lush gardens!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This house was a blank canvas when we bought it- nothing to stop my implementing my ideas of a modern, clean, high-end designed home.
