While we can’t quite own up to being a star student, we were definitely excited to learn a little more about this hidden gem located at 199 Warren Street in a late 1880’s landmarked schoolhouse. Rest assured, you won’t find any blackboards here – though they probably wouldn’t seem out of place given this home’s curious aesthetic. Each room has a distinct personality that offers a wonderful lesson (see what we did just there?) in the charm of eclectic design.

With its quaint private entrance and multi-level living space, this exquisite two bedroom, 2.5 bath residence feels more like a townhouse than an apartment. A stunning foyer opens to a large living room with 16-foot vaulted ceilings where one might easily think they’ve been transported back in time to a classically decorated 19th century parlor.

But only for a minute, as the beautifully detailed kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops plants you firmly back into the 21st century with every modern convenience. Ascend the wrought-iron-railed spiral staircase to find a delightful, spacious mezzanine-styled loft currently being used as an office.

Downstairs, you will find the two large bedrooms decorated in bohemian chic style—one with an en-suite bath and plentiful closet space and the other with a masterfully built storage area over the room.

Nestled in the heart of Cobble Hill and tucked around the corner from picturesque Verandah Place, you’ll already feel like you’re worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. But soundproofed walls make it even quieter. With dedicated street parking, and common outdoor space on both the main level and roof, not to mention Cobble Hill Park just a few steps away, there’s no doubt in our mind that whoever snaps up this one-of-a-kind $1.8 million home is a smart cookie indeed.
