This large (1,000sf / 100sm), newly-renovated private 2 bedroom apartment with high quality amenities occupies the entire first floor of a carefully restored landmark brownstone in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. 2.5 blocks from express trains, 20 min from Manhattan; steps from neighborhood restaurants, sights, and park. The apartment accommodates the maximum of 6 guests. It features a South garden-facing patio and is equipped with high speed Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry. Parking is usually available on the block or nearby.
You will enter through a private entrance from the front yard and into a vestibule, which leads into an open floor plan living room, kitchen, and dining area. As we have tried to preserve the original brownstone feel of our house, the living room features a floor-to-ceiling pier mirror and carefully restored original windows.
The kitchen has everything necessary for cooking and eating in, although you will be tempted by excellent restaurants in our area. The eating bar is a natural gathering space, great for meals and socializing. We stock the cooking basics such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, and coffee. A comfortable dining area is equipped with Restoration Hardware dining table and chairs.
Both the Master Bedroom and the Second Bedroom face our South garden, and are filled with light. The Master Bedroom has a queen size bed and a walk-in closet. The room has access to the garden patio. The patio cafe table is perfect for having a coffee or reading a morning paper.
The Second Bedroom has one twin bed plus a second fold-out twin bed (or a pack-and-play at your request), and sleeps two. We provide high quality bedding and towels to make your stay comfortable and restful. In the bathroom, you will find soap, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer.
There is a fold-out queen size sofa in the living room, which can sleep two guests.
The laundry area is equipped with the new washer and gas dryer. We provide the organic detergent and bleach.
For your convenience, we also provide maps, guidebooks, umbrellas, as well as toys and games.
The house is located on one of the most beautiful landmark blocks in the Prospect Heights historic district among rows of 19th century townhouses. Our neighborhood is friendly and diverse, culturally rich and architecturally interesting. It is also quiet and green. Many of Brooklyn's exceptional offerings are a short walk away. Take a 7 min walk to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Public Library, or Prospect Park. The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), known for outstanding theater, dance, and music performances, and the Barclays Center, a new sports arena and concert hall, are a 20 min walk from the house. There are lots of excellent restaurants, cafes, and shops in the area, as well as the Saturday farmer's market at Grand Army Plaza. But our favorite thing to do is stroll through the streets and take in the architecture and the vibrant atmosphere of Brooklyn.
The house is 2.5 blocks away from the Q and B "7th Avenue" express stop; and 4.5 blocks from the 2 and 3 "Grand Army Plaza" express stop. Both the yellow and red lines will take you to Manhattan within 20 min. You can also catch a green cab or an Uber ride. Parking is usually available on our block or nearby, and there are several parking garages in the area.
