This is a private, well-appointed studio apt on the 3rd floor of an 1899 brownstone, only 20 minutes by train from Manhattan. The lovely, light-filled space offers an impressive mix of historic charm and modern design, Fully equipped with linens, dishes, and comfortable furnishings, this studio has been thoughtfully renovated. It has two large windows that overlook the back garden, as well as two skylights. It boasts an original decorative fireplace, restored wood floors, brand new appliances, and a modern marble & glass shower. Wi-fi and premium cable TV (with HBO) are included. Though cozy, it is well designed and is perfect for one person, a couple or two close friends. This Brooklyn neighborhood is charming and tree-lined, and the popular neighborhood cafe is a half-block away. Shopping, restaurants, and laundry are all within a short walking distance, and the subway station is a 5-min walk. A trip to Manhattan takes only 20 mins to downtown and 30 to Times Square.
