Overview

About the property

Art-filled One Bedroom With Garden Access And Studio.

Our beautiful, art-filled garden apartment is now available for holiday rental!

Just two blocks from the subway and several grocery stores, smack in the middle of happening Harlem, walking distance to Columbia University, nine blocks from Central Park, it occupies the garden floor of the house we live in. We are a European-American family, and well familiar with both ways of life, so you will have no surprises!

Walk through your private entrance garden into the living room. With a large screen TV and a comfortable pull out couch, it can serve as your second bedroom. A large massive oak dining table accommodates up to six people for your own Harlem dinner party! The kitchen is fully stocked, and a dishwasher takes care of the clean up. A long art-filled gallery leads to the back of the apartment, were your bedroom overlooks the quiet garden. The bathroom is modern and clean. And your huge walk-in closet will house all of your clothes along with the suitcases, skis, golfing gear, whatever!

Off the bedroom you can work in your own studio, a tiny enclave where you can write your emails, browse the web or start that novel you have been thinking of writing. Internet access is free! From the studio you can pop into the ivy-covered garden, with its hammock, large dining table and flowering vines.

About Katrin Zimmermann

World-traveler, born in Germany, multi-lingual, renowned designer with my own company- and yes, I renovated this apartment! We live right upstairs!

Katrin Zimmermann purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Katrin Zimmermann chose Manhattan

Harlem is my love. Since I was a kid, I thought of Harlem as this great, multi-cultural place- and I was not wrong!

Anyone who lives in Manhattan would love to live here, with our beautiful old townhouses and lush gardens!

What makes this apartment unique

This house was a blank canvas when we bought it- nothing to stop my implementing my ideas of a modern, clean, high-end designed home.

Calme et volupté

  • 5 of 5

An oasis of peace 20 mn from Time Square by express Subway. A lot of good restaurants and even a wholefood since recently.

Many thanks Katrin for your warm welcome and for sharing this apartment and it's garden with your hosts.

I look forward to coming back soon

Met all our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment met all our expectations. Open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen more than adequate. Excellent bathroom. Bedroom spacious with large walk in cupboard. Back garden great for outdoor meals. Perfectly situated for access to subway and downtown east side or west side busses. Will stay here again.

NYC with my 13 yo son was fantastic, but coming home every night to our beautiful apartment was the very best part!

Fabulous NYC Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Katrin's Art Apartment! We felt comfortable and were right at home. We enjoyed the outdoor space so much and spent lots of time relaxing underneath the patio cover sipping beverages and enjoying breakfast. We will definitely make our way back to Katrin's apartment some day!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this Harlem Art Apartment. Fun atomosphere/decor and great space for a Mother Daughter trip. Well equipped kitchen. Large bathroom, and bedroom with really comfy king bed. It is close to great Harlem restaurants, grocery stores, and the subway. My Mother and I walked all over Harlem, day and night, and felt very safe. We took the subway at all hours as well. You can get anywhere you want to go very easily. Thanks Katrin! We hope to stay again when we return to NYC.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best vacation rentals, from every perspective: helpfulness of the owner; comforts (and spacious beauty!) of the apartment; great and convenient location; everything really! Only regret is not being able to meet Katrin's daughter in person, but hope to make up for it next time. Bis dann!

Harlem is the most happening neighborhood in New York right now! Have you eaten at Red Rooster? Have you listened to Jazz at Cecil's? Have you gone to church at St. John the Divine? Have you visited Columbia University? Have you seen the New York Marathon? Have you checked out Amateur Night at the Apollo? Have you biked around Central Park? Have you been to the Guggenheim? All these are within 15 walking minutes from our house!
