My place is close to the 2 and 5 subway lines that run express in Manhattan on both the east and westside of NYC. The house is over 100 years old and has the high ceilings, lots of light and space and bay windows. It also has a nice backyard. We are a family that lives here and hope you will treat it like you own it and the place is ideal for families, has a crib and playroom setup for kids. We don't have cats, though ad shows we do, just can't remove it.
When you arrive to the house there are about 10 steps up to the front door. There is a parlor entrance with two sets of doors and pocket doors on the right side lead into the living room. The first floor has an open layout with the living room looking out on three day windows, followed by a dining room that seats six people and a bathroom divides the space between the living room and kitchen. The living room couch is a futon bed that sleeps 2. Walk up the stairs and you will find four bedrooms and one full bathroom. Each bedroom sleeps two people, except the 4th bedroom which is setup with just a crib. Then walk up the steps to the third floor and the entire floor is a kids play area with a large screen 60 inch tv and futon that sleeps two as well as wooden house and toys, toys, toys. There are 4 tvs throughout the house.
You can access the whole home except the basement which is rented as a separate unit. And the backyard is shared.
We will be out of the country so interaction will be via email. We have a lock box with a key and upon booking I will give you additional information about entering the home. We will have sheets and towels out, but not a lot of drawer or closet space available fyi.
We rent out the basement so please be respectful in the early morning and late evening.
We Don't wear shoes in the house.
