Constructed in the 1870s on a short, private block of Cobble Hill, the 34 modest Gothic cottages of Warren Place Mews were built by wealthy merchant, philanthropist and housing advocate Alfred Tredway White as homes for workingmen and their families. 21st century prices for these unique “private estates” that share an English courtyard have reached the millions; renting doesn’t come cheaply either, with the asking rent on the three-story, eleven-foot wide two-bedroom home at 1 Warren Place at $7,250/month. That may seem a bit more reasonable when you see the home’s gorgeous renovation helmed by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design and landscaped yard with your own private “writers’ compound or tiny playroom” at the back.

The individual cottages of Warren Mews face each other across a beautifully-landscaped English-style courtyard that stretches from Warren to Baltic Streets. The original goal of this unique setup was to allow light into the houses throughout the day without impediment, and today has the effect of providing a private oasis blocks away from all of the neighborhood necessities on Court and Smith Streets.

Roberts’ architecture and interior design firm worked their usual magic, creating luxurious yet comfortable interiors like this perfectly modern-rustic kitchen alongside dual living rooms (or a separate dining room).

Two beautiful, light-filled bedrooms offer privacy; tiled baths are unique in design and stellar in their use of space.

This idyllic and irresistible rear garden boasts a small, unheated (but adorable) studio tucked into its back corner. To add even more luxury and convenience there’s a washer/dryer, and a private dedicated parking space comes with the home as well.
