Beautifully renovated 100 year old brownstone town house with extensive original woodwork and parquet floors. Uniquely furnished with turn of the century oil paintings, pillars, brass chandeliers, and other fanciful antiques. Surprisingly quiet. Ideally situated close to one of New York's great city parks. Very convenient to Manhattan. Two large bright bedrooms; two smaller bedrooms, one with trundle bed and washer/dryer. High speed internet access, computers and cable TV service. Two full bathrooms, each with tub and shower. Modern kitchen with central granite-topped island that seats four. Convenient outdoor deck off kitchen with gas barbeque and large outdoor dining table. Stairs lead to lovely landscaped garden.
Park Slope is one of New York's most desireable neighborhoods--beautiful, friendly, family oriented, and safe. Twenty minutes by subway to Manhattan. Our home is one block from Prospect Park, which encompasses the Brooklyn Art Museum, Botanic Gardens, zoo, library, ice skating rink, carousel, picturesque boat house, and bike paths. Seventh Avenue is also one block away, with great restaurants, shops and cafes. Two blocks away is the historic Pavilion movie theater. Parking garage within one block.
We've started our search late this year (it's now May 1). We are looking for a one-week exchange for week of July 1-8 2012 and another one-week exchange for week of August 26-September 2.
We would prefer Vermont, New Hampshire, upstate New York or southern coastal Maine. Would also consider Pennsylvania or Connecticut or locations not too far from NYC. Prefer a beautiful natural setting with access to water if possible, a pool would be lovely but not necessary.
We are a family of four: two parents, two children (ages 11 and 9). Father works for book publisher and mother works for Columbia University. Varied interests, including France, history, the outdoors (bicycling, kayaking, star gazing, birding), the nonprofit sector, philosophy and politics.
