About the Property
2 bedroom, 1 bath with a modern kitchen and beautiful natural light.
Enjoy the neighborhood from the privacy of your corner room with a view, or pop downstairs to mingle with the regulars at the fountain counter. A favorite with locals and tourists alike, the Brooklyn Farmacy is a prohibition-era drug store restored as an ice cream parlor. Pete & Gia, sibling proprietors, live in the building and will be your hosts and neighbors.
The guest apartment is a lovely, sun-drenched, second floor suite, comfortably furnished and seductively simple. Two bedrooms offer full size brass beds, luxurious bedding, and plenty of closet or wardrobe space. Sleep two more on the living room sleeper sofa. The single bathroom is tastefully tiled and the water is plenty hot! The modern kitchen is stocked with cooking needs and complimentary coffee, tea and seltzer from the Farmacy.
Carroll Gardens is one of Brooklyn’s most desirable locations. You will be blocks away from the restaurants and boutiques of Court Street as well as the artisanal shops and bars of Smith Street. Take the kids to play at the fabulous Pier Six, take in a concert at Brooklyn Bridge Park or walk the Brooklyn Heights esplanade for great views of the Manhattan skyline. Spas, movie theaters, farmer’s markets, salons, banks and dry cleaners are abundant. A fifteen minute subway ride on the F train gets you to Manhattan and a slightly longer one takes you to Coney Island and the beach.
Enjoy the 21st century buzz of Brooklyn while stepping back into time. Send the kids down to the soda fountain to spin on the red twirling stools, play checkers, and sip egg creams at the end of the day. If you're visiting friends and family in the area, you'll have a great place to meet and greet.
TV/wifi access. Heating and AC.
