The pine plank floors, raised ceilings, and exposed ceiling beams at this Carroll Gardens carriage house are making us swoon. A recent renovation at the house, located at 36 Strong Place, has completely elevated this former stable into a beautiful three-level home. Not only is this a freestanding property—rare in this neighborhood of brownstones—it also comes with a private entryway and an expansive backyard. The rent, of course, reflects all those perks (and the fact that it comes furnished). The asking price is a hefty $12,500 a month.

Carriage homes typically do not come with a lot of space, but a smart design has left this one feeling open and expansive. With all of the wood detailing and the brick, wood-burning fireplace in the living room, this almost feels like a mountain chalet somewhere in Aspen. The front of the house even features a wall of sliding, windowed barn doors.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, as well as a third room that could be used as an extra bedroom or den. There’s also a rec room on the lower level of the house, which can be accessed by a separate entryway.

With summertime coming up, it’s hard not to feel envious of the backyard included. A wall of windows looks out onto the garden, which you can access directly through sliding doors. There’s enough space out there for a patio, furniture and a barbecue. If you rent this place, can we come over?

Even cooler: the carriage house is accessible through a private entryway. The home is set far back in its lot—90 feet back from the street, to be exact. That means there is a private driveway with enough space to park two cars. Talk about a fairy tale entrance to your historic, beautifully renovated home!
