Listing reads ( interesting !!! )

This rare Cobble Hill Carriage House, a former 1840’s Firehouse, is what real estate dreams are made of in New York City. Featured in many famous films over the years, it is impressive in scale with a 25’ wide x 85’ footprint, and offers three loft-like floors without the inconvenience of vertical townhouse living. The main floor weighs in at 2125 sq. ft. alone, and allows for an entertainment space unrivaled by ANY townhouse OR apartment in Brownstone Brooklyn. Add to that the drama of massive exposed wood beams, arched windows, a charming greenhouse, a perennial garden, an oversized reclaimed-brick wood-burning fireplace, 12” wide wood-plank floors, double height ceilings, a terrace off the 2nd floor, and oversized skylights, and you have a one-of-kind property with the warmth and grandeur only found in historical homes, but the open layout of more modern living. Currently configured as a two-unit home, with some very minor adjustments this home easily becomes a grand home with 4 to 6 bedrooms. It has been updated with central AC, and a Chef’s kitchen complete with a 48” Viking stove and granite countertops. Located in the heart of Cobble Hill, near Trader Joes, Barneys, every subway line, multiple schools, and Bklyn Bridge Park. Garage with monthly spots conveniently located across the street.
Additional features of this building include: Exposed Beam Ceiling and Double Height Ceilings, Parking Garage on Block w Monthly Spots, South Facing Garden and Terrace, Amazing Curb Appeal Close to All Transportation, Dramatic Staircase/Space for an Elevator!, 12" Wide Plank Oak Floors, Chef's Renovated KItchen, Huge Open Loft-Like Footprint, Reclaimed Brick Fireplace, and Super Flexible Layout.

  2. I have seen this featured recently in a blog post where they compared these listing photos to screen shots of it when it was featured in the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Gorgeous, but given the fact that I don't expect to earn $7million in MY LIFETIME, it's a no-go for me...

  14. Wow. Wow. and Wow. You published a photo of that bedroom and solarium on FB this week. I commented how in love I was with the room at the first sight of the brick wall - which reminded me of our very first home in a brownstone apartment. The kicker is....are you ready???? We lived in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, lol! I used to pass by that carriage house droolinggggg...aching to get inside. Thank you so much for this posting. It truly is a small world...even when it comes to houses :) oxoxo
