Furnished large room in comfortable, creative home on Highland Park/ Ridgewood Reservoirs

Rooms for Sublet



Highland Park/Bushwick/Cypress Hills, Brooklyn


August 1, 2024 - December 31, 2024


A,C, L, J, Z, M trains and LIRR…street parking

Possible shorter or longer stay- flexibility on starting sooner.
Want to get away from congested city streets? Come home to a sanctuary? Be among the trees?
We own a two family house on a residential street and live in spacious upstairs apt. Large furnished room with queen bed, desk, large dresser, closet, and small round table—and floor space for yoga, etc. can adjust furnishings for your needs.

We are often away every other week, so you would have more space to yourself then.

Includes well-equipped separate kitchen if you like to cook, shared bathroom, hardwood floors/high ceilings/French doors…old fashioned, artful, and eclectic from our travels… lots of windows, plants, & light.

We also have a small garden and sitting/ barbecue area behind the house that backs right up to the park with great trees!

We are right on newly renovated Highland Park/ Ridgewood Reservoirs—huge green space, walking/biking paths, new frisbee golf course, tennis, ball fields, etc! Just beyond Bushwick off Jackie Robinson on Bulwer Place. 10-15 min walk to A,C, L, J, Z, M trains and LIRR—street parking/bike storage.

Looking for respectful, creative individual (no couples or pets at this time) of any age who would enjoy the space, living in a real house, the surrounding park/nature, and won’t bring the party home.

Possible additional small upstairs rooms as well as 300 sq ft 1st floor art studio with built in work surfaces/ storage cabinets for rent later this summer. Ask if interested.

About This Lister

We are in our late 60’s (young at heart) and have worked therapeutically using creative arts, music, yoga, nature, and spirituality in healthcare and community settings—newly retired.

Our son and his fiancé  (in mid 30’s) live and work in downstairs apt and are artists/ designers. 

We’ve rented to quite a few artists/creatives/students/teachers over the years, mostly through Listings, and enjoy sharing our home and supporting those transitioning to NYC or needing short term. We are friendly and engaging, but also offer quiet, privacy and your own space, and we are away a lot.

We also do have a large fluffy cat named Magic—he comes with us most weeks when we go away.

Interested? Feel like this could be a good match for you?
Let me know and we can talk further.
