Huge space (over 3 thousand square feet) with a huge atrium skylight letting in tons of natural light in the heart of the east village. I bought this townhouse in 1996 and completely renovated it in 2003. It is surrounded by lush community gardens on three sides so it's truly an oasis in the city. The house is spectacular - striking modern, industrial design, atriums and skylights inside; outside a patio garden (accessible through the kitchen) with a pergola which is illuminated with fairy lights at night. There is also a BBQ in the garden and a table that seats 6 with an additional 8 chairs. Living room has table with 8 chairs and fireplace. Kitchen is fully modern with top of the line appliances. There is bar seating with 5 stools as well as banquette seating for an additional 5. House has central air and wifi. Local street parking is easy to find. Additionally there are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that can be rented out for shoots or for hair/make up or holding room purposes for a small surcharge. Over 30 people the price goes to $300/hour.
Guests need to be responsible for their own cleanup. If there are over 25 people then I ask that you hire a cleaning service.
This place is by far one of the most amazing locations I've filmed at. Alex did a great job of hosting us and also did a spectacular job of renovating this space. I loved every detail and the art pieces all around were really cool. Location was super easy to get to and had more than enough space for our crew. Alex was very friendly, quick to reply and fun to be around.
This townhouse is such an amazing place to shoot! Alex went our of her way to be flexible and let us in early because of a change in our schedule! The decor, the setup & the amenities are terrific and look great on film/video. I've shot here twice now and it looks totally different depending on where in the apt you shoot and how you set it up. Also, the way it's situation makes it so perfect for a variety of locations - you can shoot everything here! There's a kitchen with an island & stools, a dining booth (like in a diner), a large living room with great art, a backyard garden, a huge mudroom and a whole upstairs bedroom gallery. The lighting is also perfect for shooting. We also shot outside on the street in front of the apt. The location in the city is great because street parking is available and it's not that crowded. Alex was super responsive, answered all my questions and was helpful with all our needs + great to work with. I would HIGHLY rec this apt for any future shoots! The whole crew/cast loved it!
We had an amazing experience at Alex's place. Everyone loved the unique decor and character of the apartment. Spacious interior with a large outdoor deck space. Would highly recommend!
