I've listed this apartment as a "private room" but what you really get is a bedroom, private living room and office. The kitchen & bathroom is shared.
This place is a unique find in Brooklyn. I moved in a year ago and wouldn't live anywhere else. The large windows give this apartment a lot of light, I have a super compfy couch and bed, a large mid-century desk and credenza and a beautiful rustic table I made myself. This place is minimal, bright and homely.
I usually work from home and the leafy street below hums with neighborly activity but is never too noisey. Sweet Wolf & Cafe Regular are excellent cafes within 2 blocks from the apartment and Bar Toto on the corner serves up amazing brunches, dinners and wine. Fonda, 4 blocks away is probably the best Mexican food in Brooklyn.
Park Slope is a bit of a haven; it's safe, cultured, and a total respite from Manhattan, which is only 15 minute away. There are an endless number of cafes, bookstores, local markets and boutique shops and gyms. Prospect Park is a 5 min walk away at the end of my street and will be home to lots of free activities in summer.
Although the kitchen and bathroom for this apartment is shared, because we each have our own entrances you really do feel like you have your own place. Shannon and Ryan are a lovely gay couple in their early thirties. It is really important to myself, and them, that whoever takes my place is LGBT friendly so if you're a hardcore republican - i don't think it's going to work!
We share a kitchen and bathroom which is on their side of the apartment, complete with a gas stove, and all the usual kitcheny/bathroom stuff.
The place has internet and is 2 blocks from the F and the G train.
Please dont hesitate to contact me about anything if you have any questions.
Only rule at my place is that you are kind, respectful and responsible! Please no smoking for real, no pets for real, call me to ask about anything you are unsure of and generally just be a good person about everything.
