This beautiful and spacious Garden apartment takes up an entire floor of our 1880s brownstone. It has its own backyard which is great for summertime barbecue.
Our building is only two to three stops from Manhattan via the 4, 5, and F trains, and a couple of stops from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Compare this to other Brooklyn apartments that are half an hour or more from Manhattan. We are also only steps away from Pier 6 where you can hop on a water taxi into the city or Governor's Island, play some beach volleyball or walk down the promenade. Easy access to Grocery stores for food shopping and other daily amenities as well.
Cobble Hill is a great neighborhood bordering Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens - all of which are filled with quaint and award winning restaurants (Sushi, Thai, Irish pubs, Americana you name it), shops, French cafes and parks. Admire the 1800s architecture as you stroll through this historic neighborhood - you may even decide to spend the day exploring this area rather than venture into Manhattan.
The apartment has a queen bed with a memory foam mattress top, a comfortable gigantic sofa that is large enough to seat 4-5 or sleep one comfortably, two brand new LCD TVs with DirecTV, a kitchen with stainless steel range and new cookware, original hardwood floors. We know you will enjoy your stay here with us!
The backyard/garden is shared with me and my family - if you plan to have an event in the backyard please contact me ahead of time to coordinate.
This Pre-war Brownstone is located in the historic and established Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. This trendy area is filled with restaurants, French Patisseries, cafes and shopping boutiques. If you want to visit Manhattan it is only a 5 minute subway ride from one of our many subway stations (A,C,2,3,4,5,F,G stations).
We are also also steps away from Pier 6 - a newly built recreational area that includes beach volleyball courts,promenades, areas for fishing and picnicking. During the summers boats offer free rides to Governor's Island (a popular tourist destination) and various areas in Manhattan. From Pier 6 you can watch the 4th of July fireworks,or enjoy the night view of the Manhattan Skyline.
The newly built Nets basketball stadium, located next to the Atlantic Mall,is a 10 minute drive from this property.
Also within walking distance is the DUMBO area which is home to cobble streets, the Brooklyn Bridge, famous Grimaldi's pizza, and the Five Star Restaurant - River Cafe.
Whether you decide to stay in Brooklyn or venture into Manhattan we hope you enjoy your stay with us in this wonderful city!
