The living room has an amazing vibe with a unique style: wood, fireplace, bricks, 2 big mirrors and a large airy vaulted ceiling. The main living area is recessed from the main entrance with a stylish curved walkway leading to the sleeping portion of the house. The two large windows isolate the outside noise with a special Levelor blinds that provide soft defused light filtration.

In the middle of the room is a king size bed with a nice modern wooden platform. The bedroom has an attached master bath, walk-in closet and a full wall closet on one side. The second bedroom, called the presidential suite with an antique blue JFK frame has a great source of light coming from 2 windows and a big mirror.

This bedroom also has a queen size Ikea Malm bed frame, a nice thin tall dresser, a bookcase filled with colorful interesting books and another wall closet matching the master bedroom setup.

An amazing space with incredible hosts! The location was one-of-a-kind with many unique spots to shoot. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating with all of our needs. Would definitely recommend to others!
Art was great in making sure we got everything we needed. Just make sure to communicate exact needs in the space so he can make arrangements accordingly as we had to move different things around.
First off, Art's home is beautiful and rich in character. This was his first rental on Peerspace, however, as a filmmaker himself he was very helpful and understanding our needs. Highly recommended! Thanks again!
