Newly renovated, spacious and quaint loft apartment with ultra-comfortable queen bed, large daybed couch, walk-in closet, bathroom, laundry area (inclusive of washer and dryer) and private backyard. Showcases an absolutely unique collection of contemporary art and a state-of-the-art stereo system. In the heart of Bed-Stuy, cradle of jazz and hip-hop and close to all other areas of Brooklyn.
Welcome to the Artists Den! As soon as you walk into the large open plan, you will be seduced by the inviting vibe of this newly renovated loft apartment, with its rustic exposed brick wall, and the hardwood floor cozily framing the space. The living unit (bedroom, lounge/dining area, kitchen) boasts a high beam ceiling, allowing for a bright and airy atmosphere. Simply fold the brownstone-style interior shutters, and the room gushes with natural light, pouring through the bay window in the front façade. Or would you rather nestle into a homelike cocoon? Just draw the curtains to create a friendly intimacy, and the gentle glow of ceiling spotlights will bring life to a piquant collection of paintings, photographs, sculptures and other works by celebrated contemporary artists, fused with an exquisite assemblage of African artifacts and furniture.
Settle snugly in the sectional sofa, or rest your head against the tall headboard of the platform, queen size, bed: two perfect spots to kick back with a glass of wine in your hand, while soaking in the evening street view… unless you prefer to make the most of the home video projector and binge-watch your favorite TV shows on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. Complimentary video-on-demand and Wi-Fi services are available, among other amenities provided by the house, such as a state-of-the-art stereo system, private access to a walk-in closet, a spacious laundry room (with washing machine and tumble-dryer), and a gorgeously paved backyard patio, designed by one of the hottest landscape artists in Brooklyn.
Have a pleasurable dining experience in the modern open kitchen (fully furnished with utensils, appliances, dishes, cookware), sitting at the island/breakfast bar. Prolong the moment in the en-suite bathroom, treating yourself with a long soak in the roman tub.
Once back from your night out (if you choose to have one), the well-lit private entrance will welcome you back to this unique garden-floor place you will be delighted to call your own for the length of your stay in Brooklyn.
The Artists Den owes its name not only to its artsy personality - the floor above the apartment hosts the (non-residential) studio space of an internationally renowned visual artist. During working days/hours (Monday to Friday, 9 to 5), you may catch the gentle sounds of creativity at work – or not...either way, home is where the Art is! So, again, welcome to the Artists Den!
