A storied past led this Park Slope residence to its current incarnation as a townhouse with more of a loft feel. Originally a carriage house built in 1895, it was used as a car garage during the early 20th century, then it was a repair shop for boat engines, and later a sculptor’s studio. When the current owners—both architects—got their hands on the property, they transformed it into a two-story residence with an interior courtyard, a roof terrace, and a one-car garage. The three-bedroom home at 331 4th Street is currently listed for $3,985,000.

The front door opens into an entry foyer that leads you to an open kitchen, living, and dining area. The wood cabinetry, overhead built-ins, and hardwood floors bring warmth to the space while on the other side of the living room a glass-enclosed courtyard garden keeps you connected to the outside.

On the other side of the courtyard, and visible through the sliding doors, is a home office or studio, which also has access to a brick-walled patio in the back.

A large skylight over the open staircase brings more light into the home. Upstairs is the master bedroom with two closets, an en-suite bathroom, and access to a roof terrace. There are two additional bedrooms and a laundry closet.

From the garage, you can access a full-height cellar where the building’s mechanicals are housed. Steel shelving units along the cellar walls provide ample extra storage.
