Big Sunny Bedroom in N. Bay Ridge
- Mark as unsuitable
Ad ref# 102247680
Big Sunny Bedroom with Bay Windows and bonus room in North Bay Ridge Two-Family Brownstone (Furnished) in a 2BR apt.
You’ll get the biggest and brightest room, (204 sq ft., tall ceilings), with western exposure through 3 nice bay windows and cool sitting bench. Since it's right at the T of an intersection, there is little shade from the other buildings and you can see the sunset from your room almost every evening. ALSO, you'll get an adjoining room - a so-called maid's room (about another 48 sq ft.), which has built-in drawers and cabinets with shelves, as well as its own little sink. That could be your walk-in closet, meditation room, yoga nook, whatever you like!
There is no common area; we’ll share the bathroom and kitchen. I use the kitchen rarely because I can't cook my way out of a paper bag. I don’t have a ton of kitchen equipment available, but the basic pots/pans and utensils are present. I don't follow any specific diet or restrictions. No other roommates, just me.
Furniture in the bedroom as of now includes:
- Full-sized nice West Elm bedframe (no mattress – only the frame)
- Ikea desk
- designer coffee table (not pictured)
- IKEA Billy bookshelf
- 2 wooden IKEA Ivar bookshelves with adjustable shelves
Everything else belongs to the current roommate and is not included.
About Bay Ridge:
The location is great:
The Bay Ridge Avenue subway stop (R) is 2.5 blocks away (20 minutes to downtown Manhattan, if you transfer to the N at 59th St)
Owl's Head Park about 3.5 blocks away
NYC Harbor (with Bay Ridge ferry station) 3.5 blocks
Bay Ridge public library 4 short blocks
Neighborhood multi-screen movie theater 3.5 blocks away.
The local supermarket is around the corner, as is the closest laundromat.
Close-by restaurants include:
Mexican, Polish, Middle Eastern (Award-winning Tanoreen), Brazilian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Spanish
What to expect in terms of sharing the space:
Monday - Thursday: I work in midtown Manhattan, so you'd basically have the place to YOURSELF from 7:30am to 6:30pm.
Friday and weekends: I work little and sometimes spend a good amount of time here relaxing. However, I will be gone at least 1 weekend per month, and also an odd day here or there when I pet-sit for friends.
I am a 57 yr. old licensed massage therapist and energy modality practitioner, and have a treatment room in the apartment where I occasionally see clients on Friday afternoons/evenings and possibly on weekends. The treatment room is next to your bedroom, so you would need to be mindful/respectful of that if I have a client over.
NOTE: One or two weekends a month, my children (10 & 14) will visit and sleep over. They may also occasionally visit up to a week during the holidays and/or Summer vacation.
Utilities: $70/mo for everything, including broadband internet/wifi, electricity, gas and hot water.
