About the property

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.

Red Hook delight

  • 5 of 5

When I arrived early Brandon was absolutely gracious and helped get me settled in awaiting arrival of the rest of my family of 5 adults. Her home was spacious, clean and comfortable for 6 adults with a beautiful backyard and a gorgeous well-equipped "chef's" kitchen. Very convenient by ferry to Manhattan and to explore Red Hook. Highly recommend this reasonably priced alternative to other neighborhoods of Brooklyn or lower Manhattan.

Good proximity to NY

  • 3 of 5

Renovated house in a neighborhood which seems to be evolving towards post industrial - foodies style. The kitchen was beautiful and well equipped. General cleanliness was acceptable

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.

to get to the city, you need to take the F line from smith-9th street which is either a 1-mile walk or a quick bus ride from the corner on the B61. Also you can take the New York Water Taxi to Pier 11 in lower Manhattan it leaves every 50 minutes and just takes 15 minutes to the city and is only 4 blocks from the house. Here’s the info:
