About the Property

Modern Artsy Flat In Hip Part Of Brooklyn

This 2nd floor apartment is a sweet, small space on at the back of the house, limiting the street noise activity. The house is an old 1910 frame building, with layers of history, normal wear and some recent updates. It is a family-friendly building, owner-occupied, with another family on the 3rd floor.
The kitchen is tucked in an alcove, but open to the dining/living area. All kitchen appliances and fixtures are modern, with a granite counter and copper back-splash.
There is a large entry closet and a smaller closet in the bedroom. The bathroom has a standard tub with shower, dual flush toilet and stainless industrial sink. All linens (towels and sheets) are provided. This apartment offers two places to sleep, both accommodating double sleepers.
The living room/dining area windows face north and west; allowing a lot of indirect, natural light. Most of the furniture is minimal, modern style.
Although there are sleeping accommodations for four, it is really best for two adults (and two children).
With an architect/artist owner, it is a work in progress. Please do not expect hotel-level finish, but instead an interesting dialogue between materials, spaces, furnishings.
**This is a Non-Smoking unit**
Check in is at 4PM and check out is 11AM. I try to accommodate all individual arrival and departure circumstances

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: As mentioned in the rental description, I am an artist and architect. I am currently self-employed and most of the projects I do are residential or small businesses, although I have a lot of experience working on institutional/medical projects. I was born in Ibiza, Spain to American parents and moved back to the States when I was 11. My parents are also creatives, working in architecture, art and fashion. After receiving a 4-year degree in History from Boston University, I decided to pursue architecture and attended my parents alma matter Pratt Institute. Afterwards, I completed a Masters degree in sculpture at Hunter College.

Why the Owner Chose Greenwood, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
I love the friendly, safe neighborhood. It is slightly divided off from South Slope/Park Slope, creating an enclave of its own. There are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants to try; many of different regions of the world. The school system is very good and my kids can safely walk around the neighborhood unattended by an adult.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I live in the building, and make myself available to any and all questions, needs and concerns.
