Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Bedford-Stuyvesant - Chauncey House - Garden Apart.

Stunning 2 Bed Landmark Apartment

Sink into this stylish retreat on the garden floor of a newly renovated Brownstone in this trendy Brooklyn enclave.

The stunning landmark apartment boasts original details such as fireplaces, floors and moldings, which combine with refined and eclectic mid century modern furniture for a boutique hotel aesthetic.

Its European owner has created a distinct style and comfort which carries throughout -- white, high-thread-count linens on brand-new posturepedic beds, as well as deluxe towels and spa-like toiletries in the bold, 1920s-designed bath suite. Just one of the apartment’s many highlights.

Steps away is the Utica subway stop which allows guest to breeze into Manhattan or travel to and from JFK in 20-30 minutes on the speedy A/C train. Alternatively, hop on the bus or subway to nearby Williamsburg, Park Slope and Fort Greene, or leave the hustle and bustle behind for the tree-lined, village feel of Stuyvescent Heights.

Beautiful property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chauncey House for 5 nights for a girly getaway. It was our first time in New York and we loved the Brooklyn neighbourhood. Some great places to eat brunch nearby (recommend Saraghina and Brunswick) and the subway very close- 2 min walk away.

The flat has everything you need and the touch key pad easy to use to come and go. Lovely beautifully made beds to come back and sink into after a long day sightseeing/shopping and quality fluffy towels.

Nina and Marlen were great at communicating at each stage. The deposit was paid back within days of me coming home.

There is a house being built next door so there was some noise in the morning from the builders, but we were getting up early to make the most of the day-so would just say bring earplugs if you like a lie in and you will be fine-this shouldn't be a reason not to stay, just through would mention.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family and would stay here again. Thank you Nina and Marlen!

Great base for NY first-timers

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this spotlessly clean, beautifully presented apartment. Nina was very helpful throughout the whole process, from the international credit card debacle (!) to the final return of security deposit.

Easy to find on the A line from JFK, it's the basement flat of a classic brownstone. Yes, there was some building works going on next door which we weren't advised of. They started on the stroke of 7.30am which was fine for us being early risers. Not sure when it's due to finish. There's grocery stores nearby and more importantly (for an Australian), decent drinkable coffee within a 10 minute radius!!!

Beds are fantastically comfortable and there's everything you need in the bathroom and kitchen. My son was initially a bit doubtful about the air mattress having had some dodgy experiences, but said it was the best ever.

You do have to factor in up to an extra hour a day getting to and from Manhattan, and more on the weekends when the NY subway is chaotic with trackwork and line changes. Might be an idea to stay local in Brooklyn then.

I'd certainly consider staying here again on my next trip to NY!

The unit is beautiful but thats all

  • 2 of 5

From my first impressions getting out of the cab i was a little taken a back by the location and the fact that there was a block party just outside of the place. Also its def not comfortable for 4 people. The air mattress had a hole in it and that made it challenging obviously for the 4 th person. There is no air conditioning so good luck. Its also in a basement. Which make it kinda dark. There is always someone roaming around the from door. And lets talk about the location. Its about a 25 min cab ride over to any sort of life so we made sure that we were going to be out for the day because there aint no going back. The plus side is that the subway stop is about a block and a half away. And to boot there was a major construction scene right next door so we were woken up at 7:30 on monday and tuesday. It most definitely a tatsefully decorated place but that was all. Nothing much beyond that impressed me. I wouldnt recommend this place. I didnt feel very safe to walk back at night.

Great apartment! It was spacious (except for the 2nd bedroom), very attractive and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The street was less picturesque than the neighborhood in general, but couldn't have been closer to the subway stop and we enjoyed walking in the surrounding streets. I am allergic to scents and asked in advance for the owner not to use scented products for cleaning or washing/drying the bedding and she very helpfully complied. Our 6-day stay was very pleasant and it was super easy (though a bit of a haul) to travel to and from Manhattan. We found a great small grocery store nearby with the help of our hostess, who also recommended restaurants and left other helpful hints for us. The only downside to this location is the sound of foot traffic from the apartment above. I always use my white sound ap when traveling so it didn't keep me awake, but it could be bothersome if you're unprepared. Also, if you happen to be flying into La Guardia, I strongly recommend calling a ride service rather than taking a taxi (there is no train service). On arrival, we used a taxi, which cost $66 with tip. For our return, we used a ride service and the tab was only $27. Would definitely stay here again!

A Gem in the Big City

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in NYC over the holidays and we found everything here to be just what we were looking for. Close to subway, clean, great place to invite friends for a dinner. Every aspect of what was needed was there and as other reviewers have noted, the owner provided a list of things to do and recommendations of what was near. We greatly appreciate the level of detail and we would make this a return trip when we next have the chance.

Perfect base for exploring Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we'd stayed in Brooklyn and it was great to have this beautifully restored, stylish and restful property to return to every day. Public transport was less than a block away, and good cafes (Brunswick is a must visit) and restaurants were all within easy reach. I would recommend this property, it was comfortable and well maintained, and Nina, the owner, was available for any queries we had.
