About this listing
Historic Brooklyn and contemporary eco-design meet in our truly gorgeous townhouse. Come home to a picturesque, tree- and brownstone-lined street in the heart of Prospect Heights. Enjoy your king-sized bed and private bath, steps from Prospect Park.
A bookshelf and 2 closets allow you to really settle in. Also, check out the mini-fridge and coffee pot!
We have just competed renovating a green and gorgeous townhouse in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. We've stocked our beautiful, sunlit guest room with everything you might need on your visit—a king sized bed, black-out blinds, a desk (just in case you're here for business—though we hope you're here for fun!), a mini-fridge and coffee pot, and wifi. You'll have a private bath and we provide towels.
As ten-year residents of the city, we're very happy to give all manner of restaurant and activity recommends.
You have access to your room and private bath. As this is a share, and one of us often works from home, we ask that guests please not use the main floor (living room and/or kitchen).
Interaction with Guests
We are both from large families (we have 11 siblings between the two of us), so we enjoy sharing spaces. A big perk for us is meeting and chatting with people from all over the globe. Depending on how busy we are, you may see a little or a lot of us—but we'll surely try to share a drink together during your stay!
This is the ideal place from which to explore New York City's best borough. If you don't know the area, the neighborhood is chock full of lovely Brownstones and trendy restaurants.
We're a 5 minute walk to Prospect Park (Brooklyn's Central Park), and a 15 minute walk to the Barclay's Center, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
The house is located near 4 trains (2,3,Q, & B) and just a 30 minute ride from Manhattan.
Other Things to Note
Our house does have a couple permanent house guests, our small and very cute parrot, Butch and our new puppy. Butch will offer you the occasional friendly, "hello!", and the puppy is very small and hypo-allergenic for those of you who are prone to sniffles.
If green is your thing, this is the house for you. Our home uses "net zero" energy with a large solar array, rainwater collection, LED lighting, north-facing clerestory skylights, etc. If you stay with us, it would be our pleasure to tell you all about it!
