About the property

Stunning 2 Bed Landmark Apartment

Sink into this stylish retreat on the garden floor of a newly renovated Brownstone in this trendy Brooklyn enclave.

The stunning landmark apartment boasts original details such as fireplaces, floors and moldings, which combine with refined and eclectic mid century modern furniture for a boutique hotel aesthetic.

Its European owner has created a distinct style and comfort which carries throughout -- white, high-thread-count linens on brand-new posturepedic beds, as well as deluxe towels and spa-like toiletries in the bold, 1920s-designed bath suite. Just one of the apartment’s many highlights.

Steps away is the Utica subway stop which allows guest to breeze into Manhattan or travel to and from JFK in 20-30 minutes on the speedy A/C train. Alternatively, hop on the bus or subway to nearby Williamsburg, Park Slope and Fort Greene, or leave the hustle and bustle behind for the tree-lined, village feel of Stuyvescent Heights.

Beautiful property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chauncey House for 5 nights for a girly getaway. It was our first time in New York and we loved the Brooklyn neighbourhood. Some great places to eat brunch nearby (recommend Saraghina and Brunswick) and the subway very close- 2 min walk away.

The flat has everything you need and the touch key pad easy to use to come and go. Lovely beautifully made beds to come back and sink into after a long day sightseeing/shopping and quality fluffy towels.

Nina and Marlen were great at communicating at each stage. The deposit was paid back within days of me coming home.

There is a house being built next door so there was some noise in the morning from the builders, but we were getting up early to make the most of the day-so would just say bring earplugs if you like a lie in and you will be fine-this shouldn't be a reason not to stay, just through would mention.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family and would stay here again. Thank you Nina and Marlen!

Cozy place with all essentials

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the Chauncey House. Nina, the owner was super nice and accommodating with our flight cancellations because of a snow storm. The apartment has easy access with a key code and is in walking distance (1 block) to the subway station and a few blocks to several great restaurants. It would take us anywhere between 20-40 minutes going into Manhattan. The apartment is located in the Bed-Stuy area of Brooklyn which seemed pretty safe and quiet. We stayed Dec 26 2017 - Jan 8 2018 which was an extremely cold time in NYC (10 degrees) but there are plenty of space heaters and radiators to keep the place warm. The large bedroom has a double size bed where my husband and I slept with our 6 year old. Our 16 year old loved having her own bedroom with the twin size bed and access to the backyard. We didnt really utilize the backyard space only to take pictures of all the snow! On some days we stayed in, because it was simply too cold and we’d order delivery in which was a lifesaver. There is a full kitchen (minus a microwave) to cook meals - I’d recommend getting grocery delivery upon arrival. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Brooklyn!

Cozy home away from home!

Nina was wonderful. I was in town for a furniture show and found the apartment to be clean and cozy. The apartment is beautifully decorated and Nina, the owner was a wonderful host! We will return again!

Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 people (2 adults and our two sons aged 14 and 17). who had a fantastic time in this beautiful and lovely apartment. It was so nice and clean and well appointed. The kitchen has all what is needed, and even a dish washer. We cooked our Christmas dinner and had a great evening. The area was nice and felt very safe. The A line is convenience, just 2 minutes from door. We would love to come back!
