About the property

1 bedroom accommodates 6 people

Classic Brownstone Garden Apartment is on the garden level, entering into your own lobby area, with double doors heading directly into the living room, where, it has 2 queen size sofa beds which sleeps 4 people very comfortable.

Moving on you will find, the open plan kitchen with bar stools for entertaining, microwave, toaster, coffee maker dishwasher, fridge/freezer, along with pots/pans, utensils, and cutlery.

The bedroom looks onto the garden with Queen size bed ( English king) double closets with mirrors, side table, reading chair, and lamp. Extra linen and quilts for chilly nights.

The bathroom has a bath/shower, towels, blow-dryer.

Last but not least, the laundry room with full size washer, and full size dryer.

The garden is occupied by the owner, but you can certainly sit outside with your coffee whenever you choose.

The Neighbourhood: You will find lots to see and do, if you like the old, mixed in with the new.

The area has changed over the last 20 years, but if you look closely, some of our period homes have remained the same with stunning 1900 details, and charm.

Many of our locals have lived in the neighbourhood for most of their lives, and take a tremendous amount of pride.

Wonderful things are coming, from restaurants, Manny's, my favorite spot for breakfast/coffee/lunch, and dinner, nice and local, just a 5 minute walk. Popping up, even more quaint and wine bars, coffee shops, all within walking distance or a short trip on the A train...Yes the 'A' Train travelled by Duke Ellington, and not forgetting Lena Horn who would belt her tune in her local church community.

Transportation: With a 10 minute walk towards Fulton Street/ Utica Avenue you will find the local subway A or C train. Or just a short walk you have the J or Z train at Gates Ave heading into the city with the over ground view of the city. Which can be refreshing for those that want a glimpse of NY.

The 'A' train (Express) skips all local stations into Manhattan takes 12 minutes to Lower Manhattan - World Trade Center, Wall Street, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Staten Island Ferry.

If you stay on the train, you may head to Midtown - 34th street, 5th Avenue, 42nd Street. All this is another 10 minutes. on the same express A train.

Of course if you grab a map, you can discover much much more.

This is the city that never sleeps after all!!!

About Judith

I was born in London, and have lived in the US for over 25 years, its just an amazing place to live and visit.

Living in Brooklyn allows me to have the best of both worlds, Manhattan for the hussle and bustle, then the peace of tranquility of our diverse neighborhooods.

I love to entertain friends, and family you name it, but best of all bringing a touch of home comforts to my many travellers passing my way!

When it's my turn I love to head out of town to see family and friends, for some well deserved relaxation.

Judith purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Judith chose Bedford-Stuyvesant

I wanted to find a home that had a true neighborhood, and community feel and vibe.

Kids laughter in the summer sun, riding bikes, jumping ropes, while mums and dads sit on their stoops relaxing watching them play. Neighbors here are friendly, with a 'hello ' or a 'Good Morning'. while you hussle along your way to work, or school, or just stopping to have a chat.

Autumn brings a cool change, savoring the evening breeze before the winter sets in, all the while getting many 'how was your day' from our lovely seniors who make a tremendous difference to keeping our block a vibrant place to live.

What makes this apartment unique

A true Classic Brownstone, with old world charm and modern twists.

Our home provides that, from the 1910 iron bars on windows, to the front gates all orginal to the home, to wood detailing features, pocket doors crown mouldings on the palor floor.

A tree lined block where many homes are proudly showed off during summer/autumn house tours. Historic charm is what you will find on many blocks. Modern has it place too, which is what makes this neighborhood a charm.

Very Pleasant, Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great classic Brooklyn Brownstone - with all that you need for a pleasant/comfortable stay in the city. Manhattan is about 1/2 hour away by train, grocery within walking distance. Neighbourhood restaurants are limited, but those that are there are very good.

Judith was VERY accommodating in letting us check in early and depart later than the scheduled time. Judith was also very prompt in answering questions about the place, neighbourhood and the city. Highly recommend.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Judith is from the UK which was a pleasant surprise and made me feel more at home. The apartment is spacious and the absolute bonus is the huge washing machine and tumble dryer.

I was glad to find a tea towel for drying dishes and spare towels/sheets in the cupboard so I didn’t have to bother Judith for spares during my stay. Being used to little things at home, I did miss having a Pyrex jug to microwave my milk in for cocoa in the morning and I couldn’t find a cheese grater, although there may have been one. I also prefer to have a choice of different sized baking trays, as then you can cook a variety of things at once, maybe a pizza tray too. There was a glass lasagne style one and another large flat one. So an idea. I also like to have soap in the kitchen to wash my hands before and during preparing food for convenience and hygiene. Judith explained that she used the bathroom for this in her home. It would be a nice touch for the future if i am making recommendations. I enjoyed the food preparation space, often city apartments have tiny kitchens with hardly any work surface.

I am fussy with pillows so brought my own but my husband didn’t have a problem with them. The bed was comfortable, not hard, but it’s a difficult one to judge for other upcoming guests as there is nothing like your own bed of course.

The shower is powerful enough, large shower head and no problem with hot water.

I loved having the space of just my husband and I in this apartment but the front room is large, so those who don’t mind sharing their space, there is enough room for the guests using the sofa beds.

You can hear the family upstairs walking only but Judith explained this and personally I prefer to hear the walking noise than be the one making it!! There was no noise from music (or talking) which does bother me so it was really nice to have the quiet.

The neighbourhood is fairly quiet too, being in the city obviously odd sirens, but you expect that. The A train is two blocks down and then about six or so across, about 8-10 mins walk, but I walk quite fast. Key Foods is two blocks down and about four across.

If you want to feel relaxed then this place is ideal. Judith was really kind the day we left and told me just to relax and not stress myself with rushing. This is the type of host you need!! It was lovely to chat with Judith as though I had known her before my stay!! So 5 *+

Lovely Garden Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Don't pass this property up!

This garden apartment was super cozy. The property was clean, tidy and well maintained and in a cute community. Many restaurants, shops and bars just a short walk away. Everything that was needed was included. The owners of the property were very communicative and made the check in and out process a breeze.

Our Stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a week at this Classic Brownstone Property in Brooklyn. We met Judith and Family on the Street and right away they made us feel welcome. The Apartment was exactly as the Photos show. Good size rooms and very clean.

Although we landed at Newark Airport we commuted via Train with no problems the directions that were given were helpful. The apartment is a good 15 min walk from UTICA Station, which has an elevator for luggage. However we found that it was an easier walk from the Next Station Ralph Ave, although no Elevator for Luggage.

Judith was very friendly and excellent at responding to emails. She was happy to assist with what ever we needed.

Good location, convenient to transport.

Our local wine store Manny's Wine on Halsey, Grand Champs, on Patchen Ave, Peaches, Saraghina and Bakery all an easy walk too. Check them out too! Not forgetting Peaches hot house, all in Bed Stuy.
