The lavish mind
Past the brick façades and leafy trees of this quiet street lies a home well-appointed for those seeking truth beyond the surface. Ornamented with tribal figures and relics, there’s also a deck, a polished upright piano, and engaging tomes to peruse. With cheerful boutiques, Smith Street’s ‘Restaurant Row’ and several parks all within a few blocks, you’ll find Cobble Hill offers plenty to think on. But you may find you do your best musing beneath the oaky exposed beams and golden chandeliers of Douglass House.
Your host is a writer and deep-thinker, who loves his home for the cosy, quiet contemplation it affords. When not putting pen to paper, you can find him gazing on the Gowanus Canal from his favourite spot on the Carroll Street Bridge, or teaching himself a few guitar chords.
High culture club
The comfortable living area – with its contemporary sofa and plush armchairs – is perfectly positioned for in-depth discussions over a morning espresso. Aside a wooden dining table with seating for four is a glossy red-and-white kitchen, with a jutting island and shelves bedecked with multicultural artefacts. And just beyond you’ll find French doors leading onto a sweet deck replete with a rustic table and chairs. The double bedrooms are set for exercises of both body and mind, with a stationary exercise bike and glass-topped desk respectively. While the master bedroom is crisp and minimal, its queen bed bordered by a well-stocked book shelf and daring red table.
