Recently renovated and restored, this historic 1901 two-bedroom has original ten-foot tin ceilings, bay windows, a sunroom, and a new modern kitchen. It is near many cafes, restaurants, shops, and galleries, including: Norma's, Houdini's, Nowadays, Julia's, Topos, Milk & Pull, Bosna and many others. Perfect for couples, business travelers, families (with kids), and those that appreciate original architecture. The Forest M and Halsey L train subway stops are both easily within walking distance.

The space

This newly restored apartment is open and airy, and has excellent natural light throughout the day. The renovation itself took the better part of a year, with the goal to restore and expand upon original details, as well as update and improve upon details that were not original. Along the way I collected an eclectic variety of vintage furniture from around the area, and am now working on adding plants and art.

Interaction with guests

I live in the apartment, but If it's available, it means I won't be there during your stay. I'm also currently converting the basement into my art studio, so will be on the premises most of the time to help out or give tips on the area. I am also available on my phone at all times. The building itself is a landmarked two-family in the heart of Ridgewood, Queens.

Other things to note

Please be exceptionally considerate of our neighbors, as this is a quiet neighborhood with longtime residents. I am personally friends with the neighbors on both sides and throughout the neighborhood. Walls are thin in these old buildings, and loud voices carry right through them, so please be very mindful.

This is a quiet neighborhood with longtime residents and a strong sense of community. Also, noise travels very easily between units in these old buildings, so please be extremely mindful of volume levels. I am in good standing with my neighbors and I would love to keep it that way.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - 7-8 stairs for the stoop is all.
Potential for noise - This is an old building and noise travels easily between apartments. Aside from that it is one of the more peaceful areas of NY that you'll find.

We enjoyed our stay at Andrews. It is a beautiful apartment. Andrew met us there, carried our luggage up the few steps and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. This was the most well stocked place I have ever stayed. Wonderful bath items were available. The pantry was also stocked with goods, along with jams, etc in the frig. It was a welcome place to return to at the end of the day. Andrew quickly responded to any questions we had during our stay. We also felt very safe in this neighborhood, even when returning late at night.

We felt at home immediately in the very lovingly designed apartment. All the necessary things were there. We also felt absolutely safe in the surrounding area and a big supermarket was nearby. Andrew was a great, helpful host. We would book at any time again with him.
