Lovely and spacious 4 bedroom brownstone with garden in Bed-Stuy

We are renting our 3-story furnished home in Brooklyn for five months while we are away on research sabbatical. The neighborhood is on the edge of Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant and is a classic tree-lined Brooklyn street of brownstones/townhouses. The YMCA is at the end of the street, as is an excellent small grocery store; nearby you'll find wine shops, casual and upscale restaurants, bars, and plenty of cafes. The C train and G train are each an 8-minute walk from the house for an easy trip into Manhattan. Two Citibike stations are one block in either direction.

The apartment is an excellent fit for a large family or for those who desire a lot of space, a rarity in NYC!

First floor: Open plan living room/dining room/kitchen with 10-foot ceilings. The kitchen is recently renovated with Viking refrigerator, walk in pantry, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and all typical appliances (blender, Kitchenaide, Instapot, etc.). There is also a laundry room and half bathroom. Second floor: One bedroom with king-sized bed, large closets, and master bathroom with shower currently under complete renovation; a sitting room that can be used as a bedroom (bed available); and a storage room. Third floor: One bedroom with single bed that fulls out to king size if desired with built-in closets/shelves; second bedroom with full-sized bed and dresser; a full bathroom currently being gut-renovated that will have a Kohler deep tub and vanity, and a large office with three desks and a printer. Due to ongoing renovations, we cannot include photos of every room now but can send pictures of the renovated spaces in December.

Backyard has a private deck with table/chairs and old and new plantings (yard is shared with downstairs tenant). New Pella windows on the back of the house on all three floors. Four window air-conditioning units available to be put in windows once the weather turns warm, although the house stays temperate most of the year. Wifi enabled heating system.

The home is very comfortable with nice southern and northern light. The neighborhood is very safe and our lovely neighbors are friendly.
