Lovely room in Brooklyn Lime Stone

Ad ref# 102374053

Hi there!

We have a room opening up in our 3-bedroom pre-war apartment in Prospect Lefferts Gardens/Flatbush on a dead-end street, just 2 minutes from Prospect Park and the Parkside Ave stop of the Q train. We are sad to see our roomie go but she got a great deal on a studio apartment! We are looking for a roommate who is kind, considerate, and who is interested in creating a relaxed, friendly, communicative space where everyone chips in to keep the apartment clean/takes turns buying essentials like TP, cleaning supplies, etc. Open to gatherings but also keeping the apartment a place to chill out.

The room is $1000 and includes all utilities except electricity. That ranges from approx $30.00/month in colder weather to $40ish in hotter weather (ACs running). It has hardwood floors and is a unique shape, measuring about 7.5’ x 18,’ not including a small trapezoid section in front of the windows, which are embedded in exposed brick. The opposite end of the room, closer to the bedroom door. has a large wall-length closet with sliding doors. The room is in the back of the apartment with access to a deck through the large window (yes there is a deck!) with a view to a green, quiet backyard. It is a cozy, private space with lots of potential. There is additional storage available in the basement.

A little about us: We are two females in our late 30s and early 40s. One of us works in a civic non-profit, loves dancing, singing, potlucks, is a member of the Park Slope Food Coop, is Queer, and is active in the neighborhood. The other of us teaches therapeutic horseback riding for a non-profit, has her nose in a book most of the time, enjoys wandering through the city, and loves traveling. One of us has been here for 10 years and the other has been here for about 5 years.

The total size of the apartment is 1200 sf. We have an eat-in kitchen and a small living room. The bathroom has a bathtub.

If you’re not familiar with the area, the neighborhood is awesome with a lot of opportunities for community engagement and a diverse range of restaurants and cafes. We are technically in the part of the neighborhood designated Little Caribbean so there are a wide variety of Caribbean restaurants and bakeries (Alan’s Bakery, Errol’s Bakery, Peppa’s Jerk Chicken, Fisherman’s Cove, and the list goes on!) Our apartment is a 2-minute walk away from both Prospect Park and the Q train station. There are friendly neighbors on our block and we’ve had many BBQs over the years. We are a no-smoking and mostly pet-free apartment (although we’ve been known to occasionally catsit a couple of different cats that belong to friends). 🙂
