Overview

Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

The Metropolitan Room, as it is known, is an elegantly furnished studio is up one flight of stairs in a 1890 brownstone townhouse. The four poster queen size bed is extremely comfortable and laden with pillows and a comforter. The south facing windows fitted with folding shutters and venetian blinds look out over West 82nd Street. The kitchen is small but efficient with a brand new LG stainless steel refrigerator and stove. The charming wallpapered bathroom is has a bathtub and features both a standard shower and a hand held shower.

There is a new flat screen television behind the shutters of the armoire. The big desk has plenty of room to set up a computer and work. There are two leather club chairs facing the fireplace (non-working). A commodious dresser and big closet will fit all your clothes. Hangers are provided, of course. The floor is carpeted in a wool berber and there is an arts and crafts wallpaper wainscotting around the room.

We are a married couple who live on the ground floor, one of us is an architect, the other a composer of classical music. We both work from home. We will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to guide you to features of the neighborhood. The building is extremely quiet and secure, as is the tree lined block in the heart of the Upper West Side. You are just steps from the greatest museums, shopping and entertainment in the world.

About Warren Ashworth

We are an artist couple, one of us is a composer of classical music the other is a painter and an architect. We have two grown children. We live and work in the brownstone.

Warren Ashworth purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Warren Ashworth chose Upper West Side

This is our year round residence. We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Dutch Room, is listed under VRBO 430146. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and both are the same rental rates.

What makes this apartment unique

High ceilings, quiet, beautifully furnished.

Unlike many listings, The Metropolitan Room is fully licensed by the City and State of New York to operate as a hotel for which we collect and pay taxes. Our license numbers are available upon request.

Superb room and location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect; I stayed ten days, and was in awe of this accommodation as nothing had been left out - everything had been thought of such as linen, kitchen equipment, and information. Hosts available at any time. Location is superb as subway was three blocks away, and crosstown bus one block away. I give this 8 stars!!!

Position, position, position. A fabulous place to stay in Manhatten!

  • 5 of 5

We had four wonderful days in New York, which was enhanced by our accommodation and the warmth of Warren and Susan. Being first timers it was great to have their advice and suggestions. With the subway so close it was easy to access all the places we wanted to see. In fact, there was a lot in close proximity, including Central Park, that we took advantage of. The accommodation was more than adequate, with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, especially the stocking of essentials which meant we didn't have to shop immediately. If we ever return, we would be staying here for sure and we would be recommending it to all our friends who might be visiting NYC.

Great place on the upper west side of NYC!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend four days at this total gem in the city!!! Our host greeted us and made us feel totally at home, providing us with hints for places to eat and visit within walking distance to our location. The subway is located very close, providing more than one access point. Close to Central Park and the museum of National History. The room was very clean, and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again, we usually make 1 or 2 trips to the city each year and would have no problems recommending this location for anyone.
