    Our beautiful landmarked brownstone home is a base for New York visitors who would rather get a taste of dignified Manhattan living, in a home-from-home, than pay out for a hotel and all those expensive restaurant meals. The house, in the Historic Morris-Jumel District, is a restored Victorian gem, full of traditional features, great rooms, and beautiful woodwork, but with all the benefits of contemporary living and very family-friendly. It is fully furnished, with all domestic supplies, and with utility costs included in the price. There is air-conditioning throughout. The whole house has full wireless Internet access. At the end of the block is the C train, which takes you rapidly downtown to all the sites in 15 minutes, as well as just a few stops uptown to the famous medieval art of The Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park. The full house is available for visitors, on three floors. First floor: a spacious front parlor with decorated fireplace and mantle overlooking the park, a dining room with table for eight, a large eat-in gourmet granite-topped kitchen (with all supplies – stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, 2 fridges, and freezer) and a half-bathroom. Second floor: two large bedrooms – the sunlit master bedroom at the front has a four-poster queen-size bed (plus a dressing area full of closets and an en-suite sink) and the second bedroom at the rear has a queen-size sofa-bed for two (also with a closeted dressing area). The principal bathroom, in Carrera marble, has a classic claw-foot tub and a separate shower. Third floor: two further terrific bedrooms, front and rear, plus a second bathroom with full shower. Each large bedroom contains a single bed, with a trundle bed underneath for a second guest if needed. There are armchairs, dressers and closets in each room. The layout of the house means it is suitable for a couple who want a lot of space and quiet, a single family with up to four children, or two families where the parents can sleep on the second floor, and two sets of kids on the top floor. The area around the house is just as interesting. Opposite is a park and the historic Palladian Morris-Jumel Mansion of 1760, Manhattan’s oldest freestanding building. The mansion grounds are great to walk in, and the mansion itself, now a small museum, is full of wild history and famous connections – from George Washington and Aaron Burr (Madame Jumel’s second husband!) to Napoleon. There are lots of events for kids. Beyond the local attractions, a short ride on the C train from the end of the block takes you to all the great sites of Manhattan – Central Park, the Natural History Museum, Lincoln Center, the Empire State Building, the great shopping and restaurants of the Upper West Side, the Metropolitan Museum, the Frick Collection, the Guggenheim museum, and countless other places to visit. Our location perfectly combines a sense of serene quiet and getting away from the bustle, with being close to everything you could want to see!
