Holiday Rental House
This is the perfect property for a large group of people visiting New York for whatever purpose. The house was built in 1919 and is 17 feet by 80 feet with three floors that include an elegant finished basement - totaling 10 rooms. It is artistically furnished and designed, but changes can be made per your request to reflect your needs. The house is beautiful. I grew up here. Though, there is a certain rustic aspect in the basement rooms. Some guests have commented on it and I keep it updated remember these rooms are in a basement with high small windows and pipes. This is my home and is not a hotel. Tourists: the subway (Q train) is a 3 minute walk - see below for times to some of New York's popular venues Family gatherings - great when traveling to a wedding or reunion ...This is the perfect property for a large group of people visiting New York for whatever purpose.

This is my home and is not a hotel. Tourists: the subway (Q train) is a 3 minute walk - see below for times to some of New York's popular venues Family gatherings - great when traveling to a wedding or reunion for it is a wonderfully decorated house with a large dining room, elegant kitchen and living-room and even a sun room to have those fun conversations and even family dinners. There are enough televisions and computers to entertain and also there is a family feeling emanating. In the winter the gas fireplace adds charm. Business gatherings - the dining room is great for meetings and if you are traveling with a group of five - each can have thier own bedroom and then simply go downstains to a beautiful dining room that serves as conferance room. The kitchen can serve a banquet but the nieghborhood is lively and has many shops and resteraunts you may need within minutes walking. 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 one has a double futon. There isroom in the two large ones to fit single futons if required. The two other bedrooms are on 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. These rooms are quaint and admit-tingly small, but comfortable and rent separately when the house is not rented to great reviews - see listings for quiet room 1 and 2. But still they are basement rooms and you know you are in a basement. 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, remains comfortable in both winter and summer. The rooms have space heaters and of course the house is heated by steam and gas. Remember this is a beautifully decorated house in a quiet but popular area with many shops and easy access to Manhattan. I do say 16 can fit - I have rented once that way - but that would be for a special group who do not mind tight quarters. There aren't 16 beds and sleeping bags would be required. I would only be willing to do this in certain circumstances. This is my home and I love it - miss it when I am not there. Manhattan is a subway ride away TRAIN • Q train line • Easy transfers to 2,3,4,5,LIRR from Atlantic Ave • To SoHo (28 mins) • Union Square (25 mins) • Herald Square (30 mins) • Times Square (35 mins) • Central Park and Columbus Circle (about 40 mins) More
