Brooklyn’s trendy Boerum Hill is where artists and writers come to refurbish 19th century townhomes and make new roots. On the highly desirable Dean Street, an exquisite yet welcoming four bedroom, three bathroom townhouse has been meticulously restored. In the back garden, a magnolia tree soars above the home. Count its rings and get a sense of Brooklyn’s history. Minutes from Manhattan but worlds apart, this quiet neighborhood provides a wholesome ambiance with tree-canopied streets.
An active clan, your hosts are a close-knit family of four who enjoy the freedom and diversity of their city lifestyle.
Floor by floor, views of the property’s impressive magnolia follow you through the back windows of this five storey home – but this is far from a treehouse. Sophisticated but down to earth, the vibe of the home emulates what modern Brooklyn is all about – bohemian, educated and respectful of the neighborhood’s past. The main level offers ample spaces for a cultured crew to unwind and gather. Dark wood molding, ornate beams and polished flooring connect the kitchen, living and dining rooms. Play chess, tinker on the baby grand or cozy up with a novel by the marble fireplace. The home’s three guest rooms and a master suite are located on the two floors above. Painted in a serene blue, the master suite has a private bathroom. In springtime, the magnolia’s warm pink and cream foliage glows outside the room’s windows. Below the main level is an additional family room and play area with doors that lead out to a private garden.
With its surplus of adorable eateries and chic boutiques, you may never want to leave Boerum Hill. But the home’s location makes jaunts into Manhattan or touring Brooklyn a breeze, as multiple subway lines are just blocks from Dean Street. For those who like to explore the city by foot – Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden are within a half hour walk. Along the way, stroll through the scenic neighbourhoods of Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill.
