Property description

This 4/6 person, 2 story house is located just two train stops away from Bloomingdale's and Midtown Manhattan in NYC's newest trendy neighbourhood: LIC (Long Island City). Just minutes from Manhattan, this comfortable property has been lovingly restored from top to bottom by the owner, a skilled carpenter and designer.

There is so much space here, a family, group of friends, or 3 couples could stay quite comfortably, with privacy and space for all.

The location is convenient, there are two subway stations each just 4½ blocks away from the apartment, located at 36th Avenue and 31st Street or 39th Avenue and 31st Street. A train from 39th Ave will get you to the heart of Manhattan in 6 minutes! No wonder this neighbourhood has become so popular.....

The house is located on a tree-lined street and sleeps up to six in 2 double bedrooms, with a full sized futon in the living room, and room for an air mattress if needed. It is all newly renovated and decorated in a cheerful rustic chic style with comfortable vintage furnishings and hardwood floors throughout the first floor. There are two full bathrooms, both of which are modern and luxurious, completed with high-end finishes and beautiful stone tiles.

The house is entered through a bright blue door at the top of a small set of stairs. At the very front of the house, just through the front door and to the left, is the first room (14ft x 11ft, 4.3m x 3.4m), which serves quite nicely as a multi-purpose room. For smaller groups this room could function as a living area or office, with two easy chairs and a small table perched across from windows which look out onto the garden and street below. In the back corner against an exposed brick column is an armoire for storage. Next to the conversation chairs in the other corner is a large chest of drawers.

For those needing the extra sleeping space this room also has a clever 'Murphy' bed, outfitted in charming rustic chic linens.

This queen-sized bed (80'x60') folds away into the wall and is not only well hidden but very comfortable. There's an added bonus: the street outside has very little through traffic so it is nice and quiet, day or night!

The master bedroom (6.5m x 3.5m) is down the hall at the back of the house. It has a comfortable, large king-sized bed (90' x 75') and is outfitted in crisp linens with alternative down (hypo allergenic) duvet.

This room is completely isolated from any street noise and is the perfect place to get a peaceful, quiet night's sleep. Across from the bed is a large flat screen television, table and a chair. There is a chest of drawers on the left wall for storage, as well as a large closet in the back corner.

The brand new bathroom, at the back corner of the house, is beautiful, luxurious; the owner put thought into every detail. There is a washbasin and loo, a claw footed soaking tub at the back of the room and separate shower stall (with overhead shower) at the front. You will feel 'five star' after a bath here.

Downstairs from this floor are the living and dining room, the kitchen, and another bathroom. The living and dining area is quite spacious (32' x 12ft6, 9.8m x 3.7m) and would work very well for entertaining, work purposes, or as an area for children to play. There is a large wooden dining table with seating for 6 in the back corner, with windows on either side looking out onto a cheerful garden view.

Across from the dining table is a large and sunny kitchen with loads of counter space and all the expected appliances, including stainless steel refrigerator, gas range and oven, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The handsome white cabinets are stocked with all you need to prepare and serve your breakfast, lunch or dinner.

At the front end of the house is the large sitting area which has a full sized sofa/futon (that pulls out to a full-sized bed). There is also ample space for an air mattress, if needed. Across from the sitting room is the second bathroom - stunning, with granite tiles, shower with glass doors, washbasin and loo.

The apartment has wi-fi access, there is no telephone service.

Located in the 'Dutch Kills' area of LIC (Kills is an old Dutch word for creek), this house is in a neighbourhood that is not only extremely convenient to mid-town, it has plenty of its own amenities!

Quiet and 'neighbourhoody', on the border of trendy Astoria and LIC, there are chic and expensive hotels popping up all over this area – the residents know a thing or two and now the tourists are following their lead!

Kaufman Astoria Studios as well as the Museum of the Moving Image are a short walk away and there are countless beer gardens, bars, coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries and more.

Neighbourhood gems include Dutch Kills Centraal, just 2 blocks away, a popular New-American Pub boasting local beers and delicious fare for brunch, lunch and dinner.

For a truly upscale experience there's Crescent Grill, a highly awaited and acclaimed addition to the area, it's also only a few short blocks away. They serve gourmet goodies to locals and Manhattan foodies alike, who flock here for a taste of what's new in LIC. Come find out for yourself and live like an LIC local!
