The Garden Room

ROOM SIZE: 342 sq. ft.
A flight up from the house’s entry foyer, on the parlor floor level, guests find perhaps the most unique of suites at 1871 House, the Garden Room. You will be immediately transfixed by the massive floor-to-ceiling bow window which takes up most of the southern wall of the suite, but the real treasure is behind it: the private 500 square foot urban oasis that is the accompanying garden terrace, a truly rare find for an affordable New York City accommodation. The expansive, verdant cedar roof deck plays host to a multitude of roses, lavender, and other plants, with jardinières and wooden planters framing the deck furniture: a breezy teak bench, three lazy steamer lounge chairs, and a 9-foot umbrella.
Though some guests will no doubt want to spend much of their time on the terrace, the Garden Room itself makes an extraordinary place to return to for the night or the afternoon rest. Soaring 12-foot ceilings look down on this quiet room and its carved wood and marble fireplace mantle, tall Normandy armoire, unique four-poster queen-size bed, and mahogany Philadelphia breakfast table. Another period throwback can be found in the southeast corner: a sculptured ceramic washbasin with wooden cabinet, augmenting the handbasin found in the bathroom.
Please note that there is no kitchen or access to a kitchen in the apartment. Provided is a small fridge, electric kettle, and sink in the room. The bathroom is a fully tiled, narrow space with antique style brass hardware and a merged shower and toilet area.
Other things to note: Terrace use is exclusive to Garden Room occupants. Windows are not operable. Room includes cable TV. Fireplace is decorative only. Pets and smoking are not permitted. There is no elevator.
