Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Red Hook - 42 Dikeman St

3 br, 3 bath sunlit house on a very quiet street just 3 blocks from the water

Our adorable, bright house was newly renovated two years ago with the best appliances, a viking stove and double oven, Le Creuset cookware and Saarinen tables. Downstairs is a kitchen, dining and library in an open plan set up and upstairs are three bedrooms with two baths. The master bedroom has a fireplace and a private bath. The house was designed by Elizabeth Roberts one of NYC's top architects and interiors experts. And here she created a sunny, happy spot that will be the perfect place for your New York vacation.

Red Hook's geographical closeness to Manhattan, is offset by the lazy, laid-back vibe of the small-town community. The neighborhood offers local restaurants (no chains!) and a very friendly community. You can have your choice of jaunts to the city (only a ferry ride away) or stay local and enjoy intimate dining, drinking and shopping spots, where you'll most likely be ordering or buying from the owner. It's just a short walk to the water in two directions with more parks per capita than any other neighborhood in NYC. Wake up and walk down the block to Martha Stewart's favorite bakery, Baked, and get fresh made pastries and cappucinos.

Walk back a few blocks and you can take the Ferry to downtown Manhattan. One of the city's best groceries, Fairway, is also a short walk--go there and barbecue their amazing dry-aged steaks on our large back deck.

Or take a picnic to Valentino Pier and lay a blanket out on the grass facing the water and watch the sun go down over the Statue of Liberty. You won't believe Manhattan is just a short ride away.

About brandon holley

We are a family of three and have lived in Red Hook for 11 years. Our son was born here and we will never leave! I've worked in magazines and digital for years and my husband is a musician. Please feel free to ask us anything about the house.

brandon holley purchased this house in 2004

Why brandon holley chose Brooklyn

We walked in and just knew this was going to be our home, the sun pours in every afternoon and block is incredibly quiet. All the neighbors are friends and the kids all play together on summer afternoons. It's quaint and cool with lots of artists and musicians. When you go to a local restaurant, you'll probably end up meeting and making friends with the locals--we all know each other--which is quite unique in NYC!

What makes this house unique

Our spot is unique in the city in that it is so close to the water, you can actually smell the salt air when you walk out the front door if the wind is right. you can hear the ships blowing their horns and you feel a real part of NYC's important waterfront history. It's on a great street and is just a short block to the main area of red hook.

Great times in Red Hook!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience staying in Brooklyn and this place was top notch! Very roomy and accommodating for a large party of 7, and all of the amenities were provided. We looked for weeks across Brooklyn and Manhattan for a place to stay while we traveled in from Pittsburgh for my wife's 40th and this place was absolutely perfect for us. Just a few blocks from the bay which shot us quickly into Manhattan by Ferry. Would love to stay here again the next time we roll into town. Thanks Brandon!

House is lovely and convenient to the best of Red Hook.

  • 4 of 5

Brandon was a great host. Her home was very comfortable for our family of six. The location is great to all the new restaurants and shops on Van Brunt. Parking was easy. While we didn't cook while we were there, the kitchen would accommodate a gourmet meal. The beds were very comfortable and the showers were great.

Awesome apartment in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Red Hook at Brandon's beautiful apartment. We were in town for a wedding and the festivities were all within walking distance of the apartment, as well as Fairway which made it easy to stock up on essentials. The kitchen, the bathrooms and the bedrooms were all impeccable. Brandon was easy to get a hold of, and was very accommodating. Next time I'm in BK, I'd love to stay here again.

A beautiful property with an extraordinary kitchen

  • 4 of 5

Property owner was outstanding very friendly and extremely helpful the house was beautiful the accommodations were very good. When ever I plan on staying in Manhattan or Brooklyn this will be our go to property, very close to the pier and surrounded by great neighborhood. The kitchen was so nice we cooked every day. Wasn't too thrilled about the neighbors and that's the only reason why this property Did't receive five stars. Love the owner love the property . you will be totally comfortable And accommodated

Perfect for a weekend in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating a bachelorette party which included a few local NYC friends and several coming from Boston. Sleeping for 8 worked out perfectly and the location was ideal for all of our planned activities in and around Brooklyn. The owner was incredibly responsive and available throughout the weekend to answer all our questions...plus having the outdoor space for an early fall weekend was an extra bonus! Highly recommend for anyone wanting to explore BK and all that it has to offer. We would definitely come back!
