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.
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.
-Shared Backyard (no smoking)(I work in the basement a lot and also have access)
-Office space with desk
-There is no TV, but there is high speed wireless internet
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.
- Shoes off (no exceptions)
- Keep all noise down for neighbors (music, voices, walking around, etc...)
- No parties, partying, or smoking (No smoking in the backyard either)
- Keep things clean and neat
- No sitting on countertops or windowsills
- Be very gentle with appliances, furniture and house details
- If you have children, please make sure that they are well behaved and that you're able to comply with the house rules. If you think that they're loud or rowdy, please consider another space.
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.
From Oct 20 - 24, 2017 the minimum stay is 1 night.
