Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, I moved to NY in 2000 to pursue my passion for acting in film & theatre. I fell in love with Brooklyn, and I dreamt of one day owning a brownstone. That dream became a reality 5 years later. I'm an avid world traveller & always appreciate staying in non-toursity, local neighborhoods, so it gives me a lot of joy to create a space for visitors to discover, enjoy the soul of my neighborhood. Several films have since been shot at this location, and I still get requests for film shoots here. Come experience the charm & write your own adventure in Brooklyn!

Why the Owner Chose Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
I love the charm of old brownstones, and this particular building had the rare details in tact, stained glass windows, gorgeous wood details that are often destroyed when buildings are renovated. The location, just a 5 minute walk from the subway was also a no-brainer!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Gorgeous pre-war details, 14 foot ceilings, old world charm.... hipster neighborhood... just a 5 minute walk to the subway!
