Tucked amidst Prospect Heights’ picturesque tree-canopied streets, a 19th century townhouse marries modern Scandinavian aesthetic with vintage style. Bright white walls, natural wood floors and abundant natural light provide a lovely foil to contemporary furniture, colourful quirky decor and treasures in this beautifully curated, three bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home.
Your hosts are a family with a love for exploration. While jet-setting may have taken a backseat to parenting, their appetite for adventure continuous to be sated with their forays through New York’s fascinating boroughs.
In the mix
Enter through the airy dining room, where a contemporary birch expandable table mingles with flea market treasures: an intricately carved sewing table, an antique typewriter, and a weathered globe. The sleek black and white kitchen, fitted with stainless steel appliances and generous counter space, is ideal for trying out time-honoured family recipes.
In the living room, enjoy modern comforts with the streamlined tufted grey sectional couch and large flat screen TV, or kick back with a classic novel. On the second floor, a serene nursery and the adjacent child’s bedroom are full of whimsical touches, from a small-scaled avant-garde bed to a painting of a deer in knee socks. The home’s bathrooms are whitewashed retreats, covered in gleaming subway and mosaic tiles and sparkling chrome fixtures. The master bedroom is a calming study in harmonizing new and old, with reclaimed steel nightstands and an antique mirror alongside a Scandinavian-style white oak bed and mid-century modern dresser.
Swap & Meet
Prospect Heights yields every kind of delight: inspiring art at the Brooklyn Museum, exquisite flora at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and dynamic performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Mingle with the hip locals at Prospect Park or any of the restaurants and bars constantly popping up in the area. Craving a change of scenery? Four subway lines are right within reach.
