For $4M, a newly renovated Brooklyn Heights carriage house on a car-free cul-de-sac

May 13, 2019

Located at Grace Court Alley in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, this charming red brick carriage house has just hit the market for $3,950,000. Originally built in 1895, the residence was recently restored by the current owner—an interior designer and teacher—who added a series of elegant touches, including brand new floors throughout, a balcony on the second floor, and an in-ground fountain in the back garden. The house is right at the end of the quiet block—which doesn’t allow street parking—so you’ll be removed from the typical noise and traffic of the city.

Black-lacquered French front doors lead inside and set the stage for the black and white palette that runs throughout the residence, featuring ebony-stained Brazilian cherry wood floors set against crisp white walls with the original crown moldings intact. A wood-burning fireplace divides the living and dining room areas on the first floor, where there’s also a small library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that emphasize the dramatic nearly 12-foot ceilings.

The kitchen continues the neutral color palette, with custom white cabinetry, gray walls, and concrete countertops. Large windows in the kitchen overlook the idyllic rear garden which is enclosed by an ivy-covered stone wall and boasts a slate patio, a fountain, and a persimmon tree.

The restored staircase leads to a full-floor master bedroom suite on the second floor, which includes a Juliet balcony, a large dressing area with custom built-ins, and a master bath finished in limestone. Double sets of French doors open to a balcony which runs the entire 25-foot length of the house.

One flight down from the main level is a finished floor with the opportunity to create a second bedroom, home office, or den with direct access to the garden. There is a second full bathroom on this level as well as additional storage. Modern amenities include central heating and air conditioning as well as a washer and dryer.
