The opportunity of a lifetime awaits in this mint condition turn of the century carriage house, WITH PARKING, on one of the most charming blocks in Brooklyn Heights. An interior renovation has transformed this special home into a Mid-Century Modern masterpiece with every square inch designed with an eye towards maximum comfort, light and privacy. Currently configured as a dramatic 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath home with a large artists studio in the windowed cellar that could also provide extra guest, living space and/or nanny space. There are also two small outdoor areas, one on the kitchen level and one in the cellar, that allow for green moments without the overwhelming work of a huge garden. This is the perfect home for someone looking for the autonomy of a smaller footprint with truly no sacrifices. Enter this home from this quiet mews block either through the front door or through your very own private garage. A double height entrance awaits, where you will be greeted by a stunning oak and steel staircase; a motif that repeats throughout, in the perfect Philip Johnson combination of understated elegance and modern simplicity. A large open kitchen has been custom designed with soapstone countertops, open shelving, chefs appliances and a spacious dining room with three doors that open to a small patio. Enjoy a half bath and a guest room and/or office on the same floor that has been transformed through the clever implementation of custom built-in furniture. Head upstairs to the heart of the house, a dramatic hayloft that has been masterfully metamorphosed into a living room with extra high ceilings, exposed beams, oversized arched windows, whitewashed exposed brick, and incredible light. You will never want to leave this room, unless of course you want to head back to the large master bedroom suite with a stunning custom closet, wall of bookshelves, and windowed bath. One more flight up offers two additional bedrooms and a second full bathroom. All of the bathrooms are the perfect amalgamation of simplicity and craft. Rustic Terra cotta tiles in subtle colors juxtaposed with concrete and limestone details offer the best of luxury and simplicity. This house is the perfect example of less is more.Downstairs you will find a renovated and windowed cellar that has been transformed into an incredible artists studio with extra high ceilings, poured concrete floors, a small outdoor area, and many nooks and built-ins for storage.

Enjoy a large laundry room as well, and feel free to add an addition bathroom down there, as the space and plumbing allows for easy installation.This is truly a once-on-a-lifetime opportunity to own a quiet and private Mews carriage house, with parking, incredible character, high ceilings, with the perfect balance of turn of the century warmth and mid-century modern cool.
