Overview

About the property

Art-filled One Bedroom With Garden Access And Studio.

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 is modern and clean. 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.

About Katrin Zimmermann

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

Katrin Zimmermann purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Katrin Zimmermann chose Manhattan

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Excellent, modern accommodation in a basement apartment in a historic building close to the subway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Harlem. The apartment was very clean, modern and spacious. The shops were close by, as was the subway. The people living in Harlem were friendly and very helpful. It was an excellent place to stay as the subway was only a 5-10 minute walk that took you straight into the city. Only minor criticism was the lack of air conditioning throughout the apartment. However, in September it wasn't a real problem for us.

Home from home in Harlem, what a find!

  • 5 of 5

This is undoubtedly the best rental we have found in NYC, so convenient to where our daughter lives, and so beautifully decorated and comfortable!

we felt right at home , were able to prepare lovely meals, all in the open plan kitchen and living space, just as we love it!

Katrin is lovely and available for any questions, and also recommends a good driver to/from airports.

We particularly appreciated this lovely place,being in the hospitality business ourselves, thank you Katrin!! you will see us back for sure!

We had a wonderful stay at the Harlem garden apartment. Very clean and spacious for our family. Our favorite aspect was the garden! Several times we made dinner in the kitchen and ate outside on the garden patio. We also appreciated how cool it stayed with the AC. Hoping to come back to visit family again soon and would love to stay here again.

Met all our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment met all our expectations. Open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen more than adequate. Excellent bathroom. Bedroom spacious with large walk in cupboard. Back garden great for outdoor meals. Perfectly situated for access to subway and downtown east side or west side busses. Will stay here again.
