Come stay in our quirky little carriage house in Prospect Heights. Set off the street past a walled garden in a former stable. Open floor plan on both stories, with a large kitchen/living room on the first floor, and a loft-like master 1.5 BR.
Come stay in our quirky little carriage house in Prospect Heights. The house is set off the street in a former stable and features an open floor plan on both stories, with a large kitchen/living room on the first floor, and a loft-like master BR on the second floor. We list this as a 2BR because there is a small child's BR off the master BR. Shared garden space. Creamy terracotta tiled floor. Oriental rugs. Antique movie posters. Tasteful taxidermy.
You would never know that it's there from the street. Our place sits behind a two-story former pickle factory. The entrance is through a workshop hallway. When you walk through the front building and pop out the double doors into the garden you'll feel like you're entering in another world. (South of France? Narnia?)
Prospect Heights is a great neighborhood. We are close to all the restaurants on Vanderbilt Ave, and within walking distance of Prospect Park, Park Slope and Fort Greene.
Feel free to call or text, and I can answer any questions.
Interaction with guests
We distribute more detailed house rules after reservations are booked, but the top two concerns are: No smoking indoors and be respectful of the shared front hallway and shared courtyard. The walk to the house is through a shared hallway, when you walk through please keep your voices down. Once you are at the carriage house, you can hoot and holler to your heart's content!
I live in Brooklyn in an old carriage house/barn with my husband Stefan and baby Zora. Although we have been in the city for 9 years and I have lived in other urban areas (Oakland, Boston), I am a farm girl too. Grew up on a small sheep farm in VT. Just as comfortable in barn boots as high heels. I'm the Assistant Director of the planning and evaluation dept of a large public health grant dedicated to medical research (cancer, HIV/AIDS, pediatric illnesses...). I like walking the extra mile to see something unusual. I like street food. I like old things.
