The dead-end street known as Hunts Lane in Brooklyn Heights is a charming mews lined with former horse stables built in the 19th-century. One such carriage house, 4 Hunts Lane, is on the market for $5.5 million, and it might just be the most beautiful on the street. In addition to its gorgeous modern interiors, the four-bedroom home has a one-car garage, artist’s studio, and soaring sky-lit spaces in the former hayloft.

According to Brownstoner, the carriage house was built in the late 1880s and received its current renovation in 1998 by architect Leslie Gill. It last sold in August 2018 for $5,350,000 and then went back on the market the following year. It’s now returned, though the current owners won’t make much of a profit.

Enter the first floor via the garage or the main entrance, where you’re greeted by an architectural oak and steel staircase. There’s a small home office/den and powder room in the front. As the listing says, the whole home has a “notable focuses on comfort, light, and privacy.”

An open kitchen/dining room is in the back. The kitchen was custom designed with soapstone countertops and open shelving. Off the dining room is an outdoor breezeway/patio.

The former hayloft on the second floor is now a massive living space, which gets tons of light from the skylights and oversized arched windows. Exposed beams and whitewashed exposed brick nod to the space’s history.

The primary bedroom is also on this floor. It has a custom closet, wall of bookshelves, and an en-suite windowed bath.

A smaller third floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Rounding out the home is the finished and flexible lower level. It’s currently being used as a home office and gym. It features high ceilings, poured concrete floors, a small outdoor area, lots of storage space, and a laundry room.
