This apartment is filled with light from 3 exposures: South, West and up! With 2 skylights this apartment takes full advantage of its 3rd floor location. Three large western windows look out over a quiet green garden with an apple tree and chickens.
This is a brand new renovation of a very sweet, little one-bedroom apartment (500 sq ft) in the building where my wife and I live. I did the renovation myself and the apartment is beautiful. Some of the current photos show the apartment unfurnished, though we now have it very nicely furnished with a queen sized bed, table and chairs, sofa and kitchen amenities (more furnishing to come soon!) It is a third floor walk up. The apartment is in the rear of the building overlooking gardens and our apple tree. In addition to being quiet it gets lots of western and southern light.
We are just off of Washington Ave on Grand ave, at the center of the hustle and bustle of booming Prospect Heights. There is a vibrant nightlife with many bars and restaurants within a stone's throw of the apartment. We are a 5 minute walk to the Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park. We are situated equally close (5-10 minute walk) to the 2,3,4,5 trains on Eastern Parkway, the B,Q on Flatbush or the A, C on Fulton giving us easy access to Manhattan (a 20 minute train ride.)
Interaction with guests
Living below the apartment makes the pick up and drop off very easy. In the rare cases that tenants needed anything specific we are readily available.
My wife, daughter and I live in the building directly below this apartment. While this makes it convenient for any questions or needs that might arise (and simplifies coming and going) it also means we greatly appreciate conscientious and reasonably quiet guests! No late parties please.
