A well-appointed studio apt on the 3rd floor of a historic brownstone built in 1899, this lovely, private space is filled with sunlight and offers stylish comfort at an affordable rate, a stone's throw from Manhattan. Fully equipped with linens, dishes, and comfortable furnishings, and brimming with historic charm, it boasts three large windows, an original decorative fireplace, brand new appliances, and claw-food bathtub with shower. Though cozy, it is well designed and can sleep 3 by virtue of a comfortable queen sized bed as well as a couch that pulls-out to be a double-bed. Perfect for a couple, small family or close friends. This Brooklyn neighborhood is charming and tree-lined, and the popular neighborhood cafe is a half-block away.

Leecia grew up in Texas and Mike grew up in New Jersey, but they've lived in New York City now for over 15 years. They run a mid-century modern furniture & accessories business on the ground floor of their home.
The great location and original historic details of this house were what sold it.
It's a wonderful thing to be so close to Manhattan, and yet able to come home to what feels like a little village in leafy Brooklyn.
This studio is on the top floor of a historic brownstone in the Stuyvessant Heights area of the Bedford-Stuyvessant neighborhood of Brooklyn. With tree-lined blocks of Victorian brownstones and churches, this lovely residential area is full of friendly neighbors and historic charm . An impressive hybrid of urban and residential, it exemplifies elegant city living as designed in the late 1800's. Rich in African-American history and architectural beauty, it offers restaurants, shopping, groceries, playgrounds, and above all else, a convenient 18-minute subway ride to Manhattan. Close proximity to other notable Brooklyn attractions, such as Prospect Park and other dynamic Brooklyn neighborhoods like hip Williamsburg and classic Park Slope, add to the appeal. Overall, a good affordable home base from which to explore New York City easily while having a calm, cozy place to return to each day.
