A renovated, loft-like apt with chef's kitchen on the full parlor floor of a historic townhouse. Located on a brownstone block a short walk from Prospect Park, Barclay's and the Brooklyn Museum, near Franklin Ave restaurants and several subways.
This bright, newly renovated apartment is the full parlor level of a townhouse from 1900, with 13 foot ceilings, wood floors and exposed wooden beams and brick. It's 1000 square feet in an open layout, with a living room in the front, a big, open kitchen with new Viking appliances, a dining room with a table that seats six, and French doors opening onto a private yard. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and heated floors, and the bedroom off the back has a queen bed. It's comfortably furnished with eclectic antiques and original art, but because it's only used for Airbnb and by family, there's no personal clutter to get in your way. The chef's kitchen is a well-stocked with good cookware and all the basics, and there are ample sheets, towels and bath products. We have Apple TV and wifi.
We have a twin mattress that can be set up on the floor for a young child.
Although the apartment is big, because of the open layout it works best for individuals, couples and small families. There is a couch that a third adult can sleep on, but it doesn't provide much privacy. There is a three person limit for the apartment. We will consider pets on a case by case basis, especially for longer rentals. We are open to photo shoots and events if specifics are discussed beforehand, but please no smoking or partying.
This is a private apartment. We live in the apartment upstairs with our young children. We are always available to answer questions, provide neighborhood recommendations, or help in any other way we can, but otherwise, unless we happen to be coming or going at the same time, you won't see us.
We've had guests email us recently about the legality of our Airbnb listing. We own our home and live on the premises, and this listing is for a part of the home. Because of this, we are in the small group of Airbnb hosts in New York City who are legal to rent.
We're a photographer and a motorcycle guy who live in Brooklyn with our two kids.
