The house we stayed in was an elegant restored 1905 brownstone, with exceptionally beautiful woodwork and lighting fixtures. In addition to the beauty of the place, it is a gem for the quiet respite it provides from the hustle and bustle of the city. The shared bathroom is completely modern and itself stylish, and the third floor has a nice kitchenette for guests’ use. (Keep in mind that this style of home was on multiple floors, so there are many stairs.) Wi-fi worked great. In our room we slept underneath a gorgeous chandelier!
It is conveniently located a half-block from Flatbush Avenue – where shops, grocery stores, and restaurants of every type imaginable exist, and easy walking distance to the subway (and even closer easy-to-use, frequent bus routes). It is a short bus ride from Grand Army Plaza, walking distance from Prospect Park, and not far from the Brooklyn Museum of Art – all places worthwhile to see. The diversity of the neighborhood was exhilarating – the best that New York can offer!
We were treated with exceptional kindness and care by the owner-manager, and highly recommend it to all travelers seeking unique accommodations, historical beauty, or quietude. We hope to stay there again ourselves and have been recommending it and Housetrip to everyone!
