Victorian Flatbush boasts large houses from early last century - this 100 year home sits on a quiet block with birds chirping and children playing. It also has many bars and clubs and is now attracting artists and yuppies because of it night life and beautiful homes.
There are three bedrooms upstairs; two have double beds and has one has single bed bed. Two other bedrooms are one the lower level (elegantly finished basement). One bedroom has two beds that can remain separate or slide together to form a queen - they are heavy beds and do not move. The other room has a double airo-bed. This totals nine sleeping very, very comfortably as long as there are 3 couples. In addition there are 2 single futons and a double futon that can be distributed around the house to accommodate if there are more singles or more quests in general. Remember there is a great deal of flexibility to switch things around; in addition in the living room there is a comfortable couch. I often sleep on it in the winter because the room has a fabulous working gas fireplace. The house is large and roomy obviously. As stated above there is a formal dining room with a very large table for meetings. Two of the bedrooms can serve as offices. There is high speed internet access and regular internet with printer access on two computers, as well there is a large sun-room sitting area in front with rocking chairs looking onto a tree lined block. By the way the kitchen also is wonderful for dining and it is elegantly designed with Quaker handmade cabinets, green granite and my own paintings and photographs adorning the marble and wallpaper facades.
We are minutes from the subway and many, many restaurants and night life. This is area has become one of the places to go in Brooklyn according to Timeout magazine -
Many restaurants line Cortelyou rd which is very active at night.
The bedrooms upstairs are all air conditioned and the first floor is air conditioned - the lower level is not but is really a basement, though as elegant as the other floors, remains comfortable in both winter and summer. The rooms have space heaters and of course the house is heated by steam and gas.
Sometimes when the entire house is rented I may stay in the studio in the back which a separate building. I would need to use the bathroom by the kitchen. There are three bathrooms. But usually I drive upstate to my country home or arrange to travel during rentals. But let's discuss this upon contact.
Remember this is a beautifully decorated house in a quiet but popular area with many shops and easy access to Manhattan.
Prospect Park is .8 miles down the block and it is was built by the same architects as Central Park.

Ruth The house and the location were perfect. As advertised, it was close to good restaurants & subway. I criticize the host for leaving too much of his personal belongings as there was no room in closets & very little dresser space. As well as his personal medicine & hygiene needs in bathroom. The kitchen was not clean; the coffeepot was dirty. We had to do some cleaning before we could eat there. I did not receive security deposit of $1000 from host, & finally put a stop payment on check.
