'The Dutch Room' is a 375 square foot Studio on the second floor of a 1896 Brownstone row house. We live on the first floor of this four story building and have one other VRBO Studio across the hall from this one.
There is one queen sized reproduction antique sleigh bed, choice 19th century antique furnishings, a handsome non-working fireplace, two very large windows facing north, a large desk, dining table, kitchen and bathroom with tub.
You will want to know that this apartment was completely gutted and fully renovated in the summer of 2012 with a completely new kitchen featuring Carrara marble countertops and Crema Marfil marble floors. The bathroom and kitchen are small but comfortable and fully appointed. The towels are by Ralph Lauren.
The magnificent bed is made up with Ralph Lauren bedding and there are four Laura Ashley brand pillows, each of a different firmness.
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 usually 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.
We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Metropolitan Room, is listed under VRBO 327144. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and have the same rental rates.
High ceilings with lovely ceiling fans, big windows, quiet, beautifully furnished with antiques except the bed and chairs which are new and clean.
Unlike many listings these days, The Dutch 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.
