We live in the bottom unit of a two unit house (we own the whole building) on a quiet tree-lined block in Brooklyn. We are a quick walk to beautiful Prospect Park and 20-30 minutes from Coney Island or Manhattan by subway (7 minute walk to the Fort Hamilton F train subway stop). We are one block away from a small commercial strip on Fort Hamilton Parkway with a great coffee shop, pub, yoga, brick-oven pizza, and others. A great playground is a 5 minute walk.
The first floor has two bedrooms, two small living rooms, kitchen, bathroom, and small dining room. The two living rooms, kitchen, and dining room are open to each other, so it feels a little like four rooms and a little like one very big room. One living room opens onto the backyard. The basement has the third and larger bedroom with its own bathroom and entrance, and stays cool in the summer. The whole house was recently renovated, and the kitchen has a dishwasher, and lots of great cooking appliances. You have exclusive access to the small backyard and washer/dryer in a separate basement back room. Three air conditioners keep the place cool in summer.
The front bedroom has a full-sized bed, the middle bedroom single bunk beds and a funton, and downstairs has a queen-sized bed.
Our upstairs neighbor is friendly and the street has very little car traffic. People like to walk their dogs on our street for the quiet.
We have reliable wifi internet. We have no pets (except fish, which are on an automated feeder). Please no dogs or cats.
We have two children (3 and 6) so our house is kid-friendly, with plenty of toys and not much in the way of dangerous or breakable things.
We live here so we cannot rent it out except in July and August. We have had people stay in our space almost every summer, and it has always worked out well.
