About Chet Davis

Just an ordinary guy who has been able to live an extraordinary life!!

Chet Davis purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Chet Davis chose Manhattan

Always wanted to own a Brownstone home in the old charm...I have been able to mix the old with the new without the property losing its old charm....also the neighborhood is a very lovely quiet tree-lined block.

What makes this townhome unique

The foyer is one of beauty......the craftsmanship of all the beautiful wood-work in these type of homes is not seen anymore..from the pocket doors to the French shutters etc.

Spacious and comfortable in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Chet, met us at the door and gave us a tour and tutorial. Very friendly and welcoming. There were 5 of us and the two-bedroom flat easily accommodated us. One of the bedrooms is huge, probably 350 sq. ft., with a very large bathroom and a covered deck. The detail throughout has been beautifully preserved or restored. The Metro A, B and C lines are a long block away in one direction and the 1, 2 and 3 lines a long block away in the other direction. There's a very good restaurant, Ponty Bistro, a short block away. All in all, an excellent value. We will be back.

Beautiful and quiet brownstone in Harlem!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 had a wonderful stay!! Chet was a kind and warm host!!! Plenty of space, close to the Harlem restaurants and hangouts but on a quiet neighborhood block. We would definitely stay at EZ Living on a return trip.

Beautiful property, comfortable, clean, well-appointed. Includes a very nice deck.

  • 5 of 5

Our host was very accomodating and we would definitely stay there again. Located on a quiet, residential street with grocery and restaurants nearby. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and great living space. A wonderful value! Plenty of room for me, hubby and two adult daughters. We will definitely be back!

Space, quiet, value, in NYC

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for space and quiet for two couples in NYC. We found it here in a really cool brownstown in Harlem. Tastefully refurbished by friendly and helpful owner Chet, we had a clean and comfort place to spread out in the morning and at the end of the day. Subway station to anywhere is less than 10 minute walk. Walkable to Columbia U, Apollo Theater, and great soul food at Sylvia’s. Wonderfully different experience than a mid-town Manhattan hotel, and super reasonable!

Great location, very clean, and good host

  • 4 of 5

We loved the fact this was a brownstone, well kept, with beautiful wood floors and wood trim. The location near two subway lines worked well, get the Metro pass. The kitchen could be a little bit better equipped. We had two couples staying and were very comfortable.

Great places to be based in Manhattan. Just a few blocks from the subway. Chet is very hospitable. Neighborhood is quiet and tree-lined.
