The Manse
Spacious Two Bedroom Brownstone Townhouse Apartment In Charming Neighborhood
Large Sunny Two Bedroom Apartment (1,000 Sq. Ft --92.90 Square Meters)
The house was built in 1909 and is listed for its architectural significance in both the United States and New York State Register of Historical Places. The apartment is located on the third floor of a large well maintained brownstone townhouse that has retained most of its original architectural components including; seven fireplaces, bow front windows, decorative masonry, oak staircase, 11 foot tall pier mirror in hallway, wainscoting and mosaic tile entryway floor. There is a skylight which brings natural light into the stairway.
Free Cable TV including all premium channels: HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, TMC and EMC.
Free WiFi.
Free NYC Daily newspapers - NY Times, NY Post, Wall Street Journal
Free flowers and organic fruits and vegetables from the owner's garden -- when available.
The apartment is bathed in natural light and has a large eat-in kitchen. The kitchen table is a stylish large midcentury breakfast bar. The kitchen is excellently designed for cooking and dining. The kitchen is fully stocked to suit the needs of most cooks. The Brita water filter provided makes NYC tap water even more delicious.
The master bedroom is extremely large and has a beautiful fireplace original to the building. The furniture is a combination of antiques and contemporary pieces. The building owner's collection of midcentury ceramics paintings are present throughout the apartment as are paintings from contemporary Brooklyn artists. There is a queen size sleigh bed in this room situated in front of a three window bow front. The amount of sun that bathes both bedrooms is truly pleasurable. There is a large marble table in the room with a 1950's wooden 'atomic shaped base' and matching chairs.
In brownstone townhouses the second bedroom was traditionally called 'the gentleman's bedroom'. It is smaller than the other bedroom but also accommodates a queen size bed and has its own closet/storage area.
The living room has period fireplace original to the house, midcentury Scandinavian string chairs, a wrought iron glass top table and a trundle bed/couch which comfortably sleeps two adults. This room has its original beautiful parquet wood floor. An Austen Air Hepa air filter is provided for your healthful pleasure
The bathroom is as sunny and airy as the rest of the apartment. It has its original green antique shell tile accents on the wall, and original cast iron claw foot tub -- which is perfect for a long deep soak after a day of sightseeing . This tub is much larger than contemporary tubs and has an overhead shower attachment. The bathroom's Lucite storage unit houses a plethora of towels, complimentary toiletries and is topped by a sun loving ponytail palm.
OWNER OCCUPIED: This is very similar to a bed and breakfast without the additional cost. Unlike most vacation rentals the owner and his family live in the building. There is usually someone there to answer your questions or give you a native New Yorker's advice on this city. The building's owner is a published author and will give a Free personally inscribed edition of one of his coffee table sized art/history of NY books to every group who stays at his home for at least five days. This is a non-smoking building.
PLEASE NOTE: The apartment is on the 2nd floor so you will be walking up the stoop (stairs leading up to the entranceway pictured below) and then two flights of internal stairs. There is no elevator.

The owner is a native Brooklynite. He has lived all over the world but calls Brooklyn home. He writes about the New York and will give a free signed, personally inscribed coffee table sized book to any group that stay at least one week.
I seek to have a long-term friendship with the people who stay at my home and will do my best to achieve this so you will think of me first whenever you visit NYC.

This brownstone has most of the original architectural details that make them so charming; bow front windows, decorative masonry, oak staircases, 7 fireplaces and a tile entryway. The house is convenient to both the A, C and 3,4 subway lines.
I grew up in Brooklyn and always aspired to be a Brownstone owner. I've found North Crown Heights to be a warm welcoming neighborhood. A few blocks from my home is an urban oasis -- Brower Park. I am just a 15 minute walk to both Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum.
I work in Manhattan but I am delighted to come home to Brooklyn. You will be too.
