I am an artist and teacher. We have lived and raised our children in this wonderful home since 1993. Our children are now grown so we have returned our home to a 2-family residence.
Melanie Kozol purchased this apartment in 1993
We bought this house because of its architecturally inspired interior and superb location in Clinton Hill. The house has a contemporary open plan with artisanal plaster walls. It has been a great home and a real oasis in New York city. My husband and I work in Manhattan and this location makes it easy to commute by subway, bike or car to the city.
The apartment is light filled, modern, clean and newly renovated. It has all the benefits of a home away with high ceilings, natural light and plenty of space to stretch out.
Stayed two weeks in this nicely decorated two-room apartment on two floors. Well located if you like Brooklyn and don't mind moving around NYC by subway (C-line station very close, you can be in Manhattan within 10 minutes and you can easily reach JFK). Only two caveats, the WC on each floor is only separated by light curtains from the room and the windows are not well insulating from the noise of the road which, fortunately, is not a heavy traffick street. The owner said they might try to fix the latter feature. Otherwise, well equipped, tastefully renovated, with quite a few great books on the shelves and, not negligible, an excellent DVD series on the history of NYC! Many small shops, cafés and restaurants in the neighbourhood. We had an enjoyable stay.
The apartment was wonderful: spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, very efficiently organized kitchen and Melanie was the best host possible. She was always attentive, took care of everything we needed and was charming and welcoming.
The layout of two floors allowed us to have guests for a couple of nights in the living room, where they had their own toilet for privacy and comfort.
Excellent location: easy access to subway trains to Manhattan, 10 minute walk to Prospects Park, Green Point Park (Saturday Farmers' Market), Atlantic Center, BAM, etc.
The place is great...Clean and spacious. Fabulous location to commute to city by public transit. I also had a car and found street parking to be relatively easy.
Very comfortable, safe neighborhood, with ameneties close by..The owner is responsive and super helpful. This place is stress free and a great place to come home to at the end of the day. All positives...great value..
We stayed in Melanie's loft style apartment for 18 nights in July. The apartment is as described and in the photos - a real find on a leafy street in Brooklyn. It's bright, spotlessly clean, spacious and is really well equipped with appliances, crockery, cooking utensils, towels, bedclothes, etc. - all these make a stay real easy. The art and the decorative items in the apartment really set this apartment apart from the usual bare-bones rentals. Melanie even supplied garbage bags, toilet rolls, kitchen paper, cleaning products and basic food items - all the things that you generally have to buy when renting a place, but end up only using one or two of them! The air conditioning worked really well, but if you rent in the spring or fall the windows also open which is a plus.
We stayed here with our adult daughter - who slept on the futon sofa bed in the living/dining space. There is also another bed in the bedroom. Our bed was great - just like we like it- firm. As other reviewers have said there are no doors in the apartment, but there is a bathroom on each floor so we just went to that floor if we wished for total privacy. We were in New York visiting our other daughter and so I cooked a bit which was easy given the well stocked kitchen. The dining table easily fits 4/5 people and was my favourite piece of retro furniture in the apartment. However if you prefer not to cook there are loads of coffee shops and restaurants within 5-10 minute stroll.
There are 3-4 grocery stores within a five minute walk. The bus to downtown Brooklyn runs from a block away as does the C subway. The C brings you into Manhattan in about 10-15 minutes. There is free on street parking too which is great given the cost of parking generally in the city.
Overall I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting an alternative to a hotel room. To me living like a "local" really adds to experiencing a city and staying in a loft style apartment is so New York!
The place is lovely, in a great location (walking distance to so many things in Brooklyn; near subways for easy access to Manhattan or further afield in Brooklyn/Queens). Melanie is wonderfully responsive, easy to communicate with, and welcoming. For me and my partner it was great. We were looking for a place to stay for one month during the summer in Brooklyn, and it was a wonderfully clean, bright, and air-conditioned space.
Best for people who don't need a lot of privacy from others in their group (there are no doors separating any of the spaces in the apartment from each other).
Great stay. We stayed with Melanie for 5 months. Spacious, clean, easy access to all subway lines. Melanie was easy to contact before and during our stay. We had one minor issue with water pressure and she had a plumber there the same day and it was fixed. she takes pride in her lovely home and we appreciate her attentiveness.
