This fully furnished one bedroom apartment is located on the 2nd floor (considered 1st by Europeans) of a walk-up brownstone townhouse in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The house is a New York landmark building that is set back from the sidewalk so you have a nice front garden area. The apartment is air-conditioned and has a western and eastern exposure.
The living room is made up of two areas. The seating area is elegantly furnished and features two windows with a view of the tree-lined street outside. The room has a decorative fireplace, artwork, sofas and armchairs to make you feel at home. It is the perfect place to watch TV or relax with a good book in the late-afternoon sunlight. The dining room area is accessed through an arch with double doors. This room has an entirely different ambiance as it features hardwood floors, a beautiful dark ceiling, red-ocher walls, paneled woodwork and a wooden dining table that seats four. The open bedroom area can be accessed directly from the dining room and contains a queen-sized bed. Two windows give a view of the gardens below and the terrace outside. This private terrace can be reached through one of these windows, and is decorated with patio furniture. As it has an eastern exposure the terrace is a lovely place to enjoy breakfast outside in the sun. The open kitchen is conveniently located next to the bedroom area and also has a window that opens onto the terrace so it is easy to carry food outside. Lastly, the classic bathroom with marble elements is situated next to the kitchen, and contains a bathtub with shower, WC and washbasin.
