In the picturesque neighbourhood of Park Slope, escape to a classic brownstone with three spacious bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and a private backyard infused with plenty of charm. Three floors of sleek, contemporary space are infused with down-home comfort, inviting you to sit back with a sazerac and stay awhile.
Beauty in Brooklyn
Your host is an artist whose home reflects his discerning eye - you'll find pleasant respite in his comfortable space after a long day exploring the city.
Receive a warm welcome in a drawing room where plush seats are clustered around an elegant piano and a cello, at the ready for an impromptu jazz performance. On the stair bannister, a pile of colourful Mardi Gras beads sets a festive tone. Downstairs, a stately dining area is illuminated with a chandelier of glass orbs. A long galley kitchen fitted with marble countertops and stainless steel accoutrements sets the stage for a soul food feast. Freshen up in the elegant powder room, where silver walls depict an ethereal bayou.
In the living area, a trio of sofas with contemporary lines surround a flat screen television and a wall full of thick tomes. Perch here with a glass of tea and dog ear your favorite tome. Under the shade of the large oak tree in the manicured private backyard, sip a mint julep. Inside the boy’s bedroom, a large world map hangs behind the bed, an FC Barcelona scarf holds a place of honour above the desk, and travel treasures are prominently displayed. The girl’s bedroom is a young debutante’s dream, with an elegant mirrored dresser, a delicate chandelier overhead, and lantern lights strung over the doorway. Dream on in the serene master bedroom, with its soothing sage walls and swathes of dark wood.
Let the good times roll
When it’s time to hit the road, there’s plenty in this area to explore. Enter the commanding Beaux-arts building that houses the Brooklyn Museum and marvel at the world-class collection within. Take a long stroll through the beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Gardens - the Cherry Esplanade is particularly breathtaking during the spring. Brave the crowds for sublime Italian fare at Al di Lá then relish the scrumptious homemade pies at Four & Twenty Blackbirds.
