It may be a bit further out (about a twenty-minute drive from Manhatten in good traffic) but this part of Brooklyn is one of the most desirable in the city. Famous as a filming location and with great hipster appeal thanks to its trendy eateries and live music venues, it's got a great community spirit and old-world charm. And this characterful apartment is fittingly bold and beautiful, with a vibrant colour palette, numerous windows, exposed brickwork and contemporary decor. The open-plan living area is particularly inviting with its hanging wicker chair and blue suede sofa, while the bedrooms exude a more peaceful and minimal feel – the twin bedroom being ideal for kids. Practical as well as fun, it's the perfect blend in a fabulous location.
Home truths: * There are around 30 stairs to reach this apartment so it won't be for everyone – there's a freight lift in the building if you have heavy luggage (book this through the building's superintendent)
*There is an in-building laundry facility if you're planning a long stay
* If you're bringing little ones, there's a travel cot available
