Bienvenue a Brooklyn! Townhouse with Garden in Cobble Hill

Overview

About the property

2 floor 3 bath with a garden. Sleeps 7 easily.

Bienvenue à Cobble Hill, one of New York City's most European-feeling enclaves. Our custom-appointed, 19th-century brownstone is surrounded by a neighborhood that is both quaint—this is a landmarked historical district of townhouses, trees and parks—and vibrant, with new artisan boutiques, restaurants, coffeeshops and bars sprouting up seemingly every day. In one direction, you have famous Smith Street, with its nightlife and scene-making, in the other, the stunning, harborside Brooklyn Bridge Park, with its green spaces for walking, biking or lolling about, its ferry to Governor's Island, Sunday food-fair and jaw-dropping views of the Manhattan skyline. Manhattan itself is an eight-minute walk to the subway and two stops away—or an easy stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Our home is the extensively-renovated owners' duplex of our brownstone townhouse, offering two big, high-ceilinged bedrooms upstairs, with a third bedroom possibility in the downstairs sunroom. There are three full, custom-tiled bathrooms, a cook's kitchen with stainless-steel Viking appliances and a leafy, private garden that feels miles away from the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Cobble Hill was delightful! Super location to Bergen St. Subway, quaint non-stop shopping and dining and wonderful ambiance in the neighborhood. The home was nicely appointed with plenty of room for a family of six. The grandkids loved the TV room and their beds! The master suite had updated master bathroom, comfortable king bed, TV and lots of books! The whole home had libraries everywhere. The "kids" room had a full-size bunk and single bunk above it, so the other adults slept there. In the basement is another bedroom and the washer and dryer. We enjoyed the Sunday Street Fair on Smith St. with lots of music, clothing, jewelry and food! That was an add on bonus! The only negative is that there was food in the refrigerator as it's a family home, so I would suggest that at least two shelves be cleaned and designated for the future guests. Our grandson mistakenly drank very old almond milk on his cereal as he didn't realize we had bought some fresh, thankfully he didn't get sick! We now know Brooklyn and love it!







From Claire:

Nancy, So glad you and your grandkids loved Brooklyn! Isn't it the perfect New York CIty experience? Please come back soon!

Nice Neighborhood and Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home. It had enough room and bathrooms to accommodate our large extended family. The neighborhood was quiet and close to shopping, restaurants and stores. The back yard is beautifully landscaped with seating, charcoal grill and table space. Thank you Claire for reaching out to provide us with with additional details on your home. We enjoyed your home and had a pleasant stay.

This home is beautiful and the neighborhood perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Brooklyn! Loved this Brownstone and tree lined streets in this upscale neighborhood. Very close to the Subway and always felt safe walking to and from, even very late at night. Subway made it very easy to get around as we spent time in Manhatten, Queens, and Long Island. The home was very comfortable for our four adults and four teenagers. Spent time in the beautiful garden out back. Claire was so accomodating and willing to help us with anything we needed. Definitely would recommend this great home for your stay in New York!

Brooklyn gem

  • 5 of 5

Everything you imagined about a New York town house is exactly what you get here. Leafy tree lined streets within easy access of the subway with some nice restaurants in the locality. The house itself has some gorgeous antique pieces groaning with books you know you ought to read if the madness of New York wasn't calling you. Two lovely bedrooms with a third if you wish in the tv room. We travelled with two teenagers and our son preferred the basement where there is also a bed set up. Beautifully comfortable with three lovely bathrooms meant there were no arguments getting out in the morning! There is a really cute garden out back which was lovely for morning breakfast. The heat was too intense in late July later in the evening. Claire was so lovely to deal with and handled any questions really promptly. It's a lovely place to explore New York as you can escape back to this tranquil spot after a hectic day sightseeing. This is our second time in the Cobble Hill/Brooklyn Heights area and we wouldn't dream of booking anywhere else.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We found this townhouse when looking for airbnb or suite hotel options in the city, all of which were far more expensive and stuck near tourist traps (see: Times Square). This part of Brooklyn has a great neighborhood feel and is nicely located near the subway and Brooklyn bridge for easy access to anywhere you would like to go. The townhouse was very reasonably priced and provided much more space than the 4 of us needed and the amenities, especially the garden, were greatly appreciated.

The hosts were very accommodating and made our stay a treat. Truly a home away from home.

Best VBRO we've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

We use VBRO quite a bit because with 7 of us (2 parents 5 teens), renting a house is often more affordable and so much nicer than 2-3 hotel rooms. This is the best place I've ever found. I am so glad we decided to stay in Brooklyn for our family week in New York. The Cobble Hill neighborhood is quiet and charming neighborhood of old brownstones, felt safe at all hours we were out (through 10 pm) and showed the kids a whole different side of New York, giving them more of an idea what it is like to live in the city. We loved being able to walk for bagels, groceries and anything else we could need. The waterfront park (easy walk) is amazing with fantastic views of downtown and the Brooklyn Bridge, a must-visit. You can walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from there which is a great evening activity. This is a GREAT location.

The house too was so, so comfortable. We felt at home immediately. Crammed with books, wonderful to have basics in the house to just "replace if used," wonderful spacious rooms and beautifully decorated while still feeling homelike and comfortable. Good AC and wifi. Owners extremely nice. I felt like I should have brought a hostess gift, they were so welcoming.

And yes this suburban chick with a giant conversion van and virtually no parallel parking experience was able to park in the neighborhood. (Though there was often a space right in front of the house, I recommend parking on a quieter side street if your parallel parking process is, ahem, lengthy.) We were able to park for the week, move once for the street sweeper, and take the subway everywhere we wanted to go for sightseeing. Navigating transit is very easy with the help of Google maps. We used to live in CT 25 years ago and were so impressed with the changes in the city.

Fantastic for our family, highly recommend basing your New York sightseeing trip from here! Don't be scared Midwesterners! You will LOVE Cobble Hill - Brooklyn!
