Leaf through Boerum Hill's historic streets and villagey atmosphere belie its central location. Between the leafy parks and elegant rows of brownstones you’ll find Wyckoff Townhouse – a charming home set across three levels. An earthy palette of warm woods and natural colours complements a collection of grand antique furniture and paintings. The kitchen and dining room flow as one – here dainty china and earthenware bowls share the shelves with local history books. Upstairs on the parlour level, there are two living rooms to choose from, and there’s a stately office too, where your hosts’ book collection is displayed. Verdant minds Your hosts are history buffs with a fondness for New York's past – they’ve enjoyed watching Brooklyn evolve over their 40 years in residence. When they're not discovering new neighbourhood spots or tending their garden, you’ll find them playing music and reading. Historic roots Enter this home at garden level – you’ll find bouquets of dried flowers, sepia-toned family photos and an ivory sailing ship brighten the rooms. The kitchen is wholesome, with a beamed ceiling, cream tiles and cast-iron cookware. The dining room is just beyond and has a traditional wooden table for six, and the sun room is in the other direction – it opens into the decked garden. Head up to the third floor, where there are three beguiling bedrooms brushed with shades of cream, mint and sky-blue. And the bathrooms are equally inviting. One has a bold, monochrome-tiled floor and walk-in shower, and the other is brightly hued with a deep bathtub.
