This is a beautiful house in a peaceful, friendly residential neighborhood with excellent subways (2,5,B,Q, and S) and near one of the prettiest parts of Prospect Park. My place is close to the Prospect Park ice-skating and roller-skating rink, boathouse, bicycle rentals,and subway station, as well as the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, zoo, and Brooklyn Museum. My home is good for couples, friends, and families.
This is a historical home that is fully renovated and lovingly furnished. It's three floors, with the three bedrooms and two full baths on the top floor; an open, airy ground floor with living room, dining room, and kitchen; and a cozy English basement with many books, TV, and hangout area. In addition, the back yard was landscaped with great care and inspiration by a dear friend and is a perfect place to read, relax, eat, and socialize.
You will have access to the whole house and yard.

I am a writer who splits my time as much as possible between Brooklyn, NY, and Marfa, TX. Both homes that I rent out in these places are very dear to me, as are the town/city they are located in. Though a couple thousand miles apart and vastly different in size, both Brooklyn and Marfa are founded on a deep sense of culture, history, art, architecture, and nature (this last one is more evident in Marfa!), and there are amazing people to be found in both places. Home to me is a place where there is a vivid sense of warmth and color, where books and paintings can be found, where friends and family can eat and laugh, and you can rest your feet and head at the end of the day.
