For the first time since 1977, this one-of-a-kind Cobble Hill home is up for sale. Located at 16 Verandah Place, it’s the widest home on the block at 28 feet, and it was constructed in 1859 as a carriage house and stable. Now listed for $5.2 million, the four-bedroom home is full of original details, including the original stable floor, exposed brick, and beamed ceilings. An added fun fact–it was used as a green room for the movie The Intern.

The extra width of the townhouse is rare, as is its storefront-like window. The brick facade and cornice have been perfectly preserved, as the home has been owned by a children’s book author for the past 43 years. According to the listing, it’s been used over the years for fashion shoots and as an event space. It overlooks Cobble Hill Park and is a quick walk to almost all the main subway lines.

Pictured above is the slate-floored entry foyer, which opens into the living room. Here you’ll find exposed wood beams and columns and a brick wood-burning fireplace.

In the English basement below is the main living space. There’s a modern kitchen with an incredible amount of seating and storage space, as well as another living room that features the original brick floor from the stable (it’s even dated!) and a second brick wood-burning fireplace. Also on this level are a half bath, washer/dryer, and utility closet.

From here is the multi-level, south-facing rear garden. It’s 20 feet deep and is fully landscaped with a Koi pond and waterfall. It also has a built-in charcoal grill and lighting.

The entire third floor is devoted to the master suite, which comes complete with a newly renovated en-suite bathroom and custom built-ins.

The fourth floor holds an office and two more bedrooms.
