Converted Cobble Hill Firehouse Comes with a Magical Secret Garden

September 11, 2014

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.
