Perks for the Parents

This architect-designed duplex apartment, steps from Brooklyn’s kid-friendly restaurants, is ideal for a family stay in the city. With beautiful hardwood floors, plus white walls, retro lighting, a back yard and a decked terrace, it is a beautiful space created with natural materials for a low carbon footprint. The kitchen has high end appliances (Bosch, Miele, Wolf, Bertazzoni) including an induction cooktop.

Why Kids Love it

There are plenty of items for children including a high chair, baby bath and toys for babies up to age six. Stair gates are installed at all the stairs. There is a small sandbox in the back yard. The bathroom has a tub. The neighborhood is very kid friendly with a park a couple of blocks away and plenty of families living in the area.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. There is an additional charge of $20/person per night for all guests over 4 people. All stairs indoors are protected by pull-out baby gates and the stairs from the deck down also have a gate. The windows are European turn and tilt windows; children who can reach the handles need to be supervised. There is a clean air heat recovery ventilation system so air is always fresh without having to open any windows when it it too cold or hot outside. Interior insulation and air sealing keeps the house at a good temperature for most of the year.

About the Location

The residence is in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of central Brooklyn, on a block with many families. There are family-friendly restaurants and cafés in the area, as well as playgrounds and is near other neighborhoods with countless activities for children. The house is 30 minutes by taxi from JFK airport. Manhattan can be reached within 25 minutes by foot/subway or car. Car rental not essential in this area; two subway lines are close by.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom 2-floor apartment has a parlor floor with an open loft-like living space including a kitchen open to a dining area and a half bathroom. Two glass doors lead to the deck and backyard. All 3 bedrooms are on the top floor. One has a queensize bed, the second one has a queensize sofabed and the third has a toddler bed and can additionally be set up with a queensize air mattress or a travel crib. Outdoor space includes a deck with gas and charcoal grill and a bluestone patio in the garden with fire pit and sand box.

Style Notes

Minimalist modern meets Brownstone charm. The house is furnished with some mid-century originals as well as with contemporary furnishing; the kitchen countertops as well as the shelves and mirror in the bathroom are made from salvaged joists from old houses in the neighborhood. The whole house was renovated using natural materials (eco paints, eco floor oils etc) and has an eco-friendly appeal. The historic 1889 Brownstone was painstakingly renovated using green materials and according to ecological energy saving standards.

We are an architect/artist and designer couple with an 8 year old daughter. We are interested in "green" design, cities and nature and love architecture, hiking, biking and swimming. I am originally from Berlin, Germany and my husband Daniel is American, but grew up in Canada and has also studied and lived in Great Britain and the Netherlands. With our daughter we currently mainly travel to Germany and California to visit our families and to our cabin in the woods in upstate New York.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Jefferson residence. The home is on a quiet tree lined street and is beautifully designed. It was filled with toys and books for our three children- the hardest part of the day was convincing them to leave to go and explore Brooklyn! We would love to come back and stay again one day.

I have probably rented nearly 50 places via various rental agencies over the years, and yet this one TOPPED my all-time list. For sheer beauty and location (the photos don't do it justice!) and ease, not to mention an incredible selection of kid toys and kitchen tools, Bettina's home is a treasure. We were able to easily park our car, and our kids felt right at home. Bettina was very available for questions and any needs via email. The backyard was a wonderful perk as well. I can't recommend this place enough. A wonderful experience from beginning to end.

Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Diverse and up-and-coming

Between Fort Greene, Williamsburg, Prospect Heights and Bushwick, Bed-Stu is one of Brooklyn’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods. Expect brownstones on tree-lined streets, sidewalks busy with families and a commute into Midtown that takes around half an hour. In the summer, the diverse community get together at street parties on the block and picnics in the local parks.
