Elegant Brooklyn Townhouse for Rent

Large, airy, sun-drenched, 3-story single-family historic limestone on a quiet, coveted Park Slope block. Steps from Prospect Park and an easy walk to the subway, shops and restaurants. Versatile sleeping and work space in 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are also equipped as home offices; 2 1/2 baths. Cook's kitchen and formal dining room.

This is our primary residence, which we rent while we travel, setting aside ample closet and drawer space for guests. It is impeccably renovated and maintained, and filled with books, Oriental rugs, heirloom china and folk art from exotic destinations. Other details include: original parquet floors, stained glass, wood paneling, mosaic tile, and Stickley furniture.

All three stories are available for your use. It's a perfect setup for visiting professors, academics on sabbatical, film producers or professionals on temporary assignment in New York. For vacationers or retirees, it's a great, homey base from which to enjoy a leisurely visit to New York City.

Having lived in many rented homes during our travels, we know what guests look for and appreciate. Our typical guest stays for three months and we go to great effort to stage the house for their comfort, convenience and particular needs. We are also available by phone and e-mail 24/7.

Here is a floor-by-floor description of the space:

The first floor, cooled with ductless air-conditioning during the summer, has a double-parlor living room; formal dining room; renovated cook’s kitchen with high-end appliances and a skylight. There is a 40-inch UHD TV and DVD player in the living room. A door off the kitchen opens onto a small deck with a gas grill and stairs that lead down to a charming, manicured garden. (Note: there is no bathroom or powder room on the parlor floor.)

On the second floor is one large home office with a queen-size inflatable bed; and another room that can be used as a home office, den, bedroom or all three. This room, which can sleep up to 3 people, has a convertible queen-sized sleep sofa; a large desk that converts into a single bed (see photos); and a 55-inch LG OLED TV and DVD player. These two rooms share a renovated designer bathroom in the hallway with tub/shower. Each of these rooms has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.

The third floor has two large bedrooms (one facing the front of the house and the other facing the rear, for maximum privacy), each with a queen-sized bed. They are separated by a marble bathroom with double vanity, custom-made oak built-ins, a skylight, huge combination tub/shower, and separate toilet chamber. Each bedroom has a window air-conditioning unit and a ceiling fan.

Distinct from these three floors, on the lowest level of the house, is an English basement with a laundry room that has a separate washer and dryer, and a large playroom. Three bicycles, stored in the basement, are available for our guests' use. Additional bikes can be rented through Citibike, one block from our house at the entrance to Prospect Park.
