There’s nothing quite like a converted carriage house, from the plethora of historic details to the petite frames hiding often lofty interiors. This beauty at 413 Degraw Street in Cobble Hill, currently renting for $8,500 a month, is no exception. Built around the turn of the century, its brick facade is punctuated by the signature double-wide doors with a cast iron transom, along with arched dental moldings and a handsome cornice. Inside, it’s indeed spacious, and though the modern updates are welcome, some of the design choices seem to clash with the historic nature of the home.

The living space has floor-to-ceiling windows, beamed ceilings, exposed duct work, and brick walls. On the contemporary front are marble floors, stark white railings, and a strange elevated platform that seems to serve as the dining room. The very large adjacent kitchen mixes stainless steel with light wood cabinetry and marble counters and backsplashes. There’s two professional ovens and a built-in grill.

The second level holds the master bedroom, with its separate interior space (perhaps for a sitting room), massive walk-in closet, and master bath, which boasts a large Jacuzzi tub and steam shower with 10 jets and waterfall. Those perks are nice, but the bathroom may be a bit of marble/mirror overload.

The basement contains a utility room and laundry room and is certainly large enough to serve as an additional entertaining or bedroom space. Other features of the renovated home include central AC, radiant heat, and a central stereo/intercom system. Plus, there’s a nicely sized backyard with a picturesque brick wall climbing with ivy, though it might be nice to see the grass restored.
