Property description

Situated on a quiet tree lined street in Harlem’s Mount Morris Park Historic District, Sankofa Guest Apartment offers an inviting and unique accommodation that is centrally located making ALL of New York City easily accessible. The neighborhood is close to popular restaurants, jazz clubs, museums, art galleries and theaters. Nearby subways and buses take you ANYWHERE that is not in walking distance.

This renovated floor through apartment with a private entrance is on the top floor of a 19th Century brownstone. There is no elevator, but what awaits you at the top is worth the climb. The listing photos and 5 star guest reviews say it all.

The master bedroom with ample closet space is the ultimate sanctuary providing an utterly comforting place to land at the end of the day. It overlooks the backyard garden creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Soft lighting, hotel crisp 600 count sheets, king size bamboo pillows with memory foam, and a comfortable queen size bed with a luxury pillow top mattress make this one of the best sleeps ever. The Bose Wave Music System will wake you up or put you to sleep to your favorite music.

The spa inspired bathroom contains a soaking tub with shower, Hotel Collection bath towels, bathrobes, spa slippers, designer toiletries, magnifying makeup mirror, and hand held toilet bidet.

The spacious sun filled living room has a dining table with seating for four, 42 inch HDTV, library, twin sleep sofa with luxury 10 inch Air Dream Mattress, and landline phone with free local calls.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, and microwave, plus full kitchen utensils and cookware
