About our home

Stunning refurbished church in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Three stories, two separate bedrooms complete with full baths. Two outdoor balconies. W/D. Amazing original church features including huge wooden beams and exposed brick. Very unique design. Rustic cozy very unique space just blocks from L train, McCarren Park, Whole Foods, Apple Store and more. 10 minutes to Union Square.

The space
The apartment is on the main floor of the church. Downstairs: King bed, living room area with cozy comfy couch and chairs. Full bath. Desk and chair. W/D. Main floor: Large kitchen and dining room table that easily seats 8, full bath, balcony. Upstairs comfy queen size bed and huge windows with more exposed brick, outside balcony. Just steps away from great bars and restaurants on Bedford, but relatively quiet street. I commute to 29th and 6th in the city and it takes me 25 minutes. ~10 minutes to Union Square as L train is 2 blocks away and three stops from Union. Grocery store, liquor store and a few of my favorite places to eat just steps from the door. The church is hard to describe, but it is just stunning - such a cool, rustic and enchanting place to stay. I really love it here. I hope you will too.

More about us

  1. My husband Eric and I are romantic travelers. We are suckers for a mountain or ocean view and great sunsets.

  2. Our home in Brooklyn is a very unique place with such cool design elements. NYC can be overwhelming and we find that coming home to a real home with some space and high ceilings is a game changer. We love our home and want it to be welcoming, warm and well equipped for you and your family.

  3. We both work in international relations and are junkies for new cultures and adventures that expand our world view. We also spend a lot of time in NorCal and love the Pacific ocean -especially anywhere with seals and/or llamas :)

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Williamsburg is such a cool part of New York. I love loving there because of all the personality the neighborhood has plus the proximity to Manhattan. On the L train, you're in Union Square in ten minutes and can be most other places in the city easily in 30 min. Here's what the web has to say about our hood: Williamsburg is a hip neighborhood in Brooklyn that draws the young and the fashionable to its chic boutiques, trendy cafes and buzzy restaurants. Street art brightens residential thoroughfares and repurposed factories, while the waterfront provides stunning views of Manhattan and seasonal venues for outdoor concerts and food markets. Dance clubs, happening bars and music halls liven up the nightlife scene.

Buzzy restaurants
El Almacén, Shelter, Rosarita's Fish Shack, Five Leaves, Desnuda, Have & Meyer, Antica Pesa
Cool bars
So many!! My fav is the jike box at Lady Jays, bloody Mary's at Clems, or a fancy cocktail and oysters at Maison Premiere
Cozy cafés
Caprices by Sophie (back garden is so lovely!) Partners and Blue Bottle are all great
Retail therapy
Stroll up and down Bedford. It's got all the hip brands these days!
Bit of culture
Williamsburg Hall of Music or Brooklyn Bowl.
Walks in the park
McCarren Park is just a few blocks north
Spot of exercise
Great Yoga classes all around you. I love Moda & Core Power Yoga on N 4th. Yoga to the People is close on N 11th
Day tripping
Obviously anywhere in Manhattan and a great day trip is out to the Hamptons or up to Hudson to Cold Spring
