It’s not surprising that this ridiculously charming Cobble Hill co-op restoration was featured in Good Housekeeping Magazine. From it’s cozy furniture to rustic architecture, the one-bedroom home at 29 Tompkins Place has a little something for every type of design lover. We can’t quite pinpoint the style, but it seems to be a mashup of country cabin, bespoke Brooklyn, and midwestern flair. It’s currently on the market for $1,115,000 (h/t Curbed), which will get you details like exposed brick, crown moldings, wide-plank hardwood floors, and two cozy faux fireplaces.
The sunny living room has three large windows that face south, letting light in all day. It also has a large storage closet and plenty of space for additional shelving, as well as a custom-built wine and cocktail bar.
The living space opens directly to the kitchen and dining area, which features custom cabinetry a subway tile backsplash, and a giant center island made from reclaimed wood butcher block. There’s also a large buffet for serving and storage. We love how the brick wall with its decorative fireplace unifies the main space.
The master bedroom feels like a complete country escape, thanks to reclaimed barn-wood walls, vintage shoe closets, mini wardrobes, and lots of textured fabrics.
The en-suite mater bath (it’s a bit of a drawback that the only bathroom is accessed via the bedroom) has a large, rustic wood medicine cabinet along with plenty of custom shelving. The combination of white subway tiles, black walls, and teal-tiled shower works beautifully.
Also off the bedroom is the private terrace, which overlooks the gardens of historic Cobble Hill. It’s set up with a lounge area, grill, picnic table, and a wall perfect for projecting movies. The home last sold in 2010 for a substantially lower $580,000, so if it comes even close to ask, it’ll be quite the profit.
