Classic brownstone apartment in historic Brooklyn. Independent unit with separate entrance.
Charming large master bedroom + smaller separate den room. Both rooms have separate access to the bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen. Living/dining room.
This charming and spacious 1+ bedroom apartment is located on a quiet block in the heart of the historical section of Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn. The apartment is on the second floor of an owner occupied brownstone and it was recently renovated and fully furnished. The owner is an Italian woman from Florence, Italy with 20 years experience of New York (yes, we speak Italian!). Roberta is on hand to give advice about the neighborhood, make recommendations and give directions.
The apartment has a queen sized bed (UK king) in the bedroom as well as a through room with a sofa bed that can sleep an additional two people. (There are separate doors to each bedroom) It is very comfortable for 4.
Lots of the original details such as stained glass skylights, fire place mantels and moldings were saved during the renovations. The living room and kitchen windows face the building's backyard that was also upgraded with a patio and lots of planters and flowers. The visitors will have access to the unit from an independent entrance, completely separate from the owner's apartment.
The apartment is located only 5 blocks from the subway station and only 5 stops from downtown Manhattan on the express A train, that also guarantees easy transfers to and from JFK airport. The area offers Zagat rated restaurants (Saraghina/Italian, Peaches/Southern-American, Besos/Latin) and other entertainment facilities such as Therapy Wine Bar, Casablanca Bar, Manny's Coffee Shop, Manny's Bar and Saraghina Tapas Bar and Saraghina's Bakery, among others. There is a local supermarket plus convenience stores on almost every corner, some of which offer organic products. We are very close to the shopping strip on Fulton Street that offers more markets, banks and a large variety of products, restaurants and bars. The historical tree-lined Stuyvesant Avenue (1 block,) McDonough Avenue (2 blocks) and Decatur Avenue offer some of the best examples of Brooklyn architecture from the late 1800's (brownstones and mini mansions.) The Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Museum and the wonderful Prospect Park are also very easy to reach via subway.

I am Italian (born and raised) but I have lived in New York for 20 years. I work in Public Relations. I have a 13 year old son who, just like me, loves to travel. My family leaves in Italy on the coast close to Pisa. Just like you, I have an extra apartment in the small building that I own in Brooklyn, NY, which I also rent as a short term vacation rental via and Airbnb.
