About the property

2 Bedrooms: one small and one large for a max total of up to 6 guests

Ground floor apartment of our Brooklyn brownstone/townhouse.

The house was built in 1898 and has lots of beautiful original details. Free WiFi included as well as Coffee/tea with a Keurig Platinum Brewing system. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cups, glasses, pots and pans, etc. We recently renovated the kitchen with new cool zinc countertops.

Guests may also use our beautiful decked garden area with a bamboo wall, couches and an outdoor fireplace table. We live in the house upstairs and generally leave guests to themselves, but the garden is shared with us, and we may hang out by the fire pit with friends on occasions.

The apartment has one large bedroom with a Queen size bed and a twin size daybed that also has a trundle bed underneath. Both are beautiful Restoration Hardware furniture pieces. The small bedroom is really just for sleeping and has a twin size bed and another pull-out twin size bed trundle underneath. Please see photos.

For guests staying during the hot summer months (July/August), we have a standalone air conditioner in the main bedroom, but there is no AC in the small bedroom or the kitchen. It's generally just fine with the fans we have, but if you are very sensitive to heat and need the room cold, then this may not be the best place in the summer. Please always turn off the AC when leaving the apartment to help us preserve engery.

A few blocks to Prospect Park with beautiful walks, great for jogging or cycling. The Audubon Center is right there by the Lake with Boat Rides. At the Prospect Park tennis center, there are always courts available by the hour. Prospect park also hosts the famous Drummers Circle and Brooklyn's large farmers market on weekends at Grand Army Plaza.

The kitchen has a 4 ring Wolf gas stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and all the utensils needed. The smart TV has lots of cable channels as well as netflix, amazon prime, etc.

No smoking anywhere inside or in the garden, no parties, and no guests other than the guests on the reservation.

Why Sylvia & Andre chose Prospect Lefferts Gardens

We live in a lovely landmark protected neighborhood. All the houses were built in the late 1800s and very well taken care of. It's a little like Sesame street, with stoops where people hang out and chat with one another.

Cozy spot, perfect launching pad for weekend fun!

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic location for our girls' weekend. Quiet, cozy and quirky spot, perfect for 6 old friends to laugh and make new memories. Good bed setup for us and love the 2 showers in the bathroom - efficiency at its best! Wonderful hosts ensured we had all we needed, including last-minute refill of the propane tank so we could enjoy the backyard fire pit on a chilly night.

Charming, cozy, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, and it was as lovely as our first. It's not fancy or frilly, but there's everything you need, the owners are very accessible, and we can't wait to return!

Cozy Garden Apt with full kitchen 2 blocks from Prospect Park and the Q line to NYC

  • 5 of 5

The space is charming and spacious with 3 beds to choose from (daybed, queen and single), a full kitchen with breakfast table overlooking the back garden area. Just steps to Prospect Park and the fast Q-B lines, it couldn't be more conveniently located if you prefer to be outside the hustle and bustle of the city. As a pet-friendly garden apartment on a beautiful historically landmarked block in Prospect Lefferts Garden, a friendly neighborhood, it was a pleasure walking around in a place where people still say, "Good morning and Good Evening to oone another.'" WIth an abundance of heaters, blankets or fans, depending on your preferred temperature, iPhone chargers and fast wifi and Andre's ready response, you're well taken care of. I used this space as a base camp while I looked for apartments in the area. Sylvia and Andre were great hosts and are my favorite new neighbors. Rent with confidence.

Fantastic Brooklyn spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well decorated with lots of character. Very easy walk to the subway. Quiet streets and well lit so I felt safe walking alone. Prospect Park was a quick walk and amazing for my morning runs. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this basement apartment. Sylvia and Andre were friendly and very accommodating of our family. The apartment is nicely appointed with attractive furniture and large paintings and photographs done by the owners. The kitchen could use some work, but there's lots of room to sit around the table and enjoy a cup of (provided) coffee and a meal. The back patio is very inviting, but it snowed so we didn't get a chance to use it. It's a great location - a quick walk to Prospect Park and to restaurants that we enjoyed.
