General overview

Huge and beautiful 3 bedrooms 2 baths duplex with a beautiful backyard, about 2000 square feet, furnished with taste and close to everything. The house is located in one of the most desirable residential neighborhood of Brooklyn, the subway R train is 3 blocks away and the area is full of international restaurants, coffee shops, shopping strip on 86th (century 21, GAP, Victoria's secret, Aldo shoes....) street and 5mn away from a beautiful Shore road promenade where you could bike, walk or jog. All summer there is a food festival on 3rd avenue and plenty of festivities. 3rd avenue is a block away where you could find stores that are open 24 hours. You are 30mn from downtown Manhattan by car and about 45mn with the subway, this is a very safe, easily accessible and a very pleasant multicultural neighborhood that is trying to keep its authenticity. You will find wonderful restaurants such a Tanorreen (Palestinian), Gino's (Italian), The blue Door (Greek) and plenty of others if you like to eat out.

The space

The house is a two family house on 3 levels. We have tenants on the top floor and we live on the duplex (main and basement). The main floor of the house has a huge open space with an open kitchen and a library, there is a big guest room/office that has a twin size bed with a TV and a work area. There is a full bathroom on this floor as well. Downstairs there are 2 rooms (one with a queen size bed and the other has two twins) and a laundry room that has access to the backyard. This is also kind of an open space as there are no doors on the rooms, there is a bathroom with a shower. The backyard is usually planted with flowers for the season and would require some maintenance. This is a no pet and no smoking home.

Member description
We are a family of 4, I am an alternative health practitioner and my husband is a Math and computer university professor, we are an international family :) Originally from North Africa we lived in France and America and traveled almost everywhere for the past 20 years. Our two boys are very respectful 13 and 15 years old. We love music, travel, good food and reading. We are looking to travel mostly during the school holidays. We also have a country home in upstate NY (10mn from the original site of Woodstock) that we could leave in case you need some fresh air away from the craziness of NYC. We welcome people of all race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, and/or sexual orientation, we are looking to exchange with like minded people. Our kids are musicians and play different instruments so both houses are full of drums, Guitars or African Djembe!
