Make yourself at home in a glorious 1860s landmark mansion. The meticulously restored Italianate villa features exquisite architectural details, including 14-foot ceilings and ornate fireplaces, while the décor is a blend of antiques and Afrocentric elegance. Located in historic Stuyvesant Heights, Akwaaba Mansion is nestled in a quiet tree-lined community with some of the city’s finest brownstones. The historic Brooklyn neighborhood is rich in culture, and the excitement of Manhattan is only 15 minutes away by subway or car. Enjoy a glass of lemonade on the sun porch, savor a hearty Southern breakfast in the dining room, dream the day away under a majestic chestnut tree in the secluded garden. Enjoy a massage or a Jacuzzi for two in the privacy of your room. This is your luxury getaway in the city.
