Beautiful Big Sunny Brooklyn Loft

Loft - Entire home/apt · Grand Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205, United States

Update: Renting my lovely loft this summer at a very discounted rate. I'm looking for respectful guests to rent for a month or more. With the right person/people, i will rent it for the price that i pay. I'm not trying to make money on the rental.

The Space

Come enjoy my lovely 1100 square foot classic loft in the Fort Greene / Williamsburg area of Brooklyn. I have been in this loft for more than 10 years and it has all the classic charm that comes to mind when you think of a Brooklyn loft. The neighborhood is great with plenty of amenities within a short walk of a block or two.

It is a beautiful space with lots of natural light coming through a wall of old, classic steel framed loft windows. It is designed and furnished mid-century modern, with high ceilings and an open, spacious feel. It is very comfortable and clean. The buildings across the street are only 2 stories high so the view is nice and open for miles. The windows face east so the sun rises and floods the loft with morning light and keeps the space bright all day.

The bathroom is very big and gets lots of light with a full tub and shower with water filter. The kitchen is spacious and open with plenty of counter space and a island bar with stools where you can sit and eat. Otherwise, there is a classic diner-style booth from the 50's if you wish to sit and be more comfortable.

There is a new queen sized tempurpedic (cloud supreme) bed, flat screen television, over-sized couch, stereo, record player, wifi, directv, hepa-filter, water filtration system for kitchen tap and shower, dishwasher, and laundry (coin operated on the floor). All cleaning products used are eco-friendly.

The loft is in a classic old warehouse building. . . it is not a new construction or conversion. There is a great roof with 24 hour access with wonderful views and fresh air. It's a perfect place for a bottle of wine.

Everyone that comes into the loft, loves it and feels right at home. It a great space to relax or inspire creativity. Come experience it for yourself...

Interaction with Guests

I interact as much as needed. I prefer to let guests have their space but gladly help out with any suggestions or help they may need.

The Neighborhood

It's near the Navy Yard in between the very trendy neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Williamsburg. It is less than 2 blocks away from great supermarkets, restaurants, bodegas, and most other necessities. It is on the third floor and the building has an elevator. It is a few blocks from Pratt Institute art school and walking distance to the beautiful Fort Greene Park.

Getting around

There is convenient bus access to most major subway lines. Pleasant 10 minute walk to G and JMZ trains. There is also a City Bike station 2 blocks away convenient bicycle rental - the best way to get around NYC. By cab, it is $10-15 to lower Manhattan, $8 to Williamsburg.

If you are driving in from out of town, or plan to have a car here, street parking is safe and easily accessible. I have a car and park within a block or two every day.

  • Great place! The flat is very spacious and sunny in the morning.
    A bit noisy with the fish tank but you get used to it :)

    Markus is a very nice host. He ansered all our questions and was very supportive. He gave us nice restaurant adressses as well.

    The flat is around 25 minutes from Manhattan with the subway. Around 10 minutes by walk from Marcy Ave Station. Grocery stores are very close.
    Moreover you can easily go to the Brooklyn bridge by walk at sunset.

    If you want a nice place in Brooklyn do not hesitate to book!

  • Markus was a Great host! Even though he was out of the country he ensured everyday that everything was ok and that we where having a great time! He recommended local spots!

    Markus loft is the perfect loft experience! It has huge room full of light and everything you need to feel at home in Brooklyn!

    I would not doubt to rent his place again if available next time in New York!

    The roof top is an amazing place to have drinks with friends or enjoy amazing views and a glass of wine!

    Thanks markus

  • Really loved staying at Markus's Loft apartment, I was visiting form London and this place was really cool, just one big space to hang out it, Markus was out of the country but was easy to contact and was great staying in touch, the place was clean and very comfortable, I stayed for a week and was sad to leave, Thanks Markus.

  • Markus was a great host. He was out of the country during our stay but organised friends to meet us, all of which were really friendly and helpful. The apartment is really spacious and comfortable and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay again!

About
I love New York. But as the days go by, I get closer to living in a tree fort in the woods somewhere... near the sea. I spend most of my free time making music, taking pictures, writing, riding my bike, collecting well crafted old things, traveling, snowboarding, surfing, scuba diving, searching for good food.... Over the past 12 years, I have put a lot of time and effort into my loft space to create a very comfortable and inspiring environment. I feel is highly suited for both relaxation as well as creative thinking. Come stay in Brooklyn and enjoy it for yourself. Looking forward to sharing experiences...
