|Minimum Stay||30 nights|
Our airy, sun-drenched house, with Victorian, as well as Arts and Crafts touches, is a stunner. Located at a highly-coveted address in the heart of Park Slope, it is impeccably renovated and maintained, filled with books, Oriental rugs, heirloom china and folk art from exotic foreign travel. Other details include: original parquet floors, stained glass, wood paneling, mosaic tile, and Stickley furniture. All three stories are available for your use – it is a single-family home with no tenant apartments.
The first floor has a double-parlor living room; formal dining room; renovated cook’s kitchen with high-end appliances and a skylight. A door off the kitchen opens onto a small deck with a gas grill and stairs that lead down to a charming, manicured garden. (Note: there is no bathroom or powder room on the parlor floor.) This floor is completely cooled by two ductless air-conditioning units.
On the second floor is one large home office with a queen-size inflatable bed; and another room that can be used as a home office, den or bedroom. This room, which can sleep up to 3 people, has a convertible queen-sized sleep sofa; a large desk that converts into a single bed; and a 55-inch OLED TV. These two rooms share a renovated designer bathroom in the hallway with tub/shower. Each of these rooms has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.
The third floor has two large bedrooms (one facing the front of the house and the other facing the rear, for maximum privacy), each with a queen-sized bed. They are separated by a marble bathroom with double vanity, custom-made oak built-ins, a skylight, huge combination tub/shower, and separate toilet chamber. Each bedroom has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.
Distinct from these three floors, on the lowest level of the house, is an English basement with a laundry room that has separate washer and dryer. Three bicycles, stored there, are available for our tenants' use.
Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house. Wired Ethernet is available in both second-floor rooms and in the third-floor rear bedroom.
Owned by a respected writer and her entrepreneur husband. We currently divide our time between New York and France. This home is our primary residence and we rent it while we are away. Having lived in many rented homes during our travels, we know what tenants look for and appreciate. Our typical tenant stays for three months and we go to great effort to stage the house for their comfort and convenience. We are also available by phone and e-mail 24/7.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 1998
A great value compared to other housing options in Brooklyn or Manhattan. We raised a child and have run two successful home-based businesses in this house, while enjoying Prospect Park just steps away. It's the perfect setup for visiting professors, academics on sabbatical or professionals on temporary assignment in New York.

Orientation: Located steps from Prospect Park, Frederick Law Olmsted’s magnum opus (he also designed Central Park), with its leafy walkways and bike paths. Seventh Avenue, the main shopping area, with abundant stores, restaurants and services, is three blocks away. The house is also walking distance to Grand Army Plaza, where there is a year-round Saturday farmer’s market and the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Walk another 10 minutes, and you arrive at the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Gardens. We are one subway stop, or a 30-minute walk, to the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Transportation: The area is served by six different subway lines that go into Manhattan and further into Brooklyn. We are a 7-minute walk to the F/G train 7th Avenue station; a 15-minute walk to Grand Army Plaza station where you can catch the 2 or 3 train; a 15-minute walk to the 7th Avenue/Flatbush Avenue stop on the Q or B train. By car or taxi it’s a 45-minute ride to JFK airport; 30 minutes to La Guardia.
On-street parking is available, though you really don't need a car. Several rental car companies have branches nearby. Or, you can travel like a native and avail yourself of Brooklyn’s many bike paths.
