Even if this rustic carriage house at 172 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill hadn’t been featured in various films over the years (including Eat, Pray, Love), its star-quality is more than evident. Although currently configured as a two-unit home, its three loft-like levels can easily be converted into a spacious four-to-six bedroom residence with some very minor adjustments.

The main floor alone is a dramatic 2,125-square-feet and features double-height ceilings with massive exposed wood beams, arched windows, 12”-wide wood-plank floors, a cobblestone entry, and an oversized reclaimed-brick wood-burning fireplace which brings unparalleled warmth to the space in more ways than one.

Firehouse cooks have a proud culinary history and the home’s chef’s kitchen, with a 48” Viking stove and granite countertops, is perfect for preparing a gourmet meal. We especially love how the glass-filled arched doorway leads out to a large and delightful patio and greenhouse—your own little secret garden.

And although there’s no fire pole in sight, an equally fun metal-and-wood stair winds its way up to the second floor where you‘ll find the master bedroom suite, a second large living area, an additional loft space, and a private terrace.

Located in the heart of Cobble Hill, near Trader Joes, Barneys, every subway line, multiple schools, and Brooklyn Bridge Park, this $7 million historical carriage house is truly a rare find.
