Brooklyn Apartment Rental Photos and Description
A beautifully preserved 2bdrm townhouse comes with a tranquil backyard enclave
The Primrose Path
New York’s creative class comes to Brooklyn to put down roots, and Prospect Heights is no exception. Here, authors, directors, chefs and designers let their creativity blossom in spacious brownstones along tree-lined streets. The farm-to-table restaurants, biodynamic wine, artisanal cheese and the do-it-yourself culture gives this Brooklyn neighbourhood its charm. After a spell in this three floor, two bedroom townhouse, you’ll find everything’s coming up roses.
Your hosts are active entrepreneurs who find beauty in simplicity. A fitness trainer and a handbag designer, they love to entertain at home, whether it’s a summer garden party or a winter evening with jazz accompaniment.
Like a Japanese tea garden, the beauty of this home is in its unexpected embellishments and subtle craftsmanship. The tone is set by the zen aesthetic of the back garden, with its flagstone path, bamboo glades, and the clean lines of neatly trimmed shrubs. Start with a Pilates session in the outdoor workout area, then move into the light filled kitchen, where gleaming stainless steel appliances are offset by wood floors and antique lanterns.
The living room is minimally adorned, allowing the house’s structural beauty to reveal its breathtaking details. The inlaid borders of the parquet wood floors, an arched doorway, the leaves and vines of the plaster mouldings of a gleaming chandelier and the ornately carved mantelpiece are all wonderfully restored. Botanic drawings and careful foliage arrangements adorn a front parlour, which has exquisite frosted glass doors patterned with laurel branches.
Late bloomers will appreciate a late morning under the soaring ceilings of the second floor master bedroom. Colour is found in arrangements of green leaves and textured branches. A second bedroom is as vibrant as a flowerbed, with peony-covered throw pillows and cheerful blossoms. En suite bathrooms have soothing gray slate tiles. A relaxing soak in the tub will leave you as fresh as a daisy.
Pick of the Bunch
Aspiring botanists will find inspiration in the nearby Brooklyn Botanic Garden. After checking out the antiquities at the Brooklyn Museum, select a pocket of posies at the Saturday farmer’s market in Grand Army Plaza. When hunger strikes, enjoy seasonal produce with brunch at Flatbush Farm or pizza from the wood-fired oven at Franny’s.
