Description

Let down your hair Once upon a time, in a leafy neighbourhood in Brooklyn, there was a storybook home known for its antique charm and hidden delights. Lefferts Avenue offers easy access to adventure in the enchanted forests of Prospect Park, culture at Brooklyn Academy of Music, or tranquility among the blossoms of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but the magic begins within its walled garden and two floors filled with colour and light. There’s space enough here for a giant, with three bedrooms whose soft mattresses would satisfy the most demanding princess. Whether you’re seeking beanstalks or golden eggs from the Grand Army Plaza farmer’s market or just an excellent espresso, Lefferts Garden is a vibrant neighbourhood that will quickly cast a winning spell. Illustrious enchantment Your hosts are both acclaimed illustrators whose work has appeared in children’s books as well as prominent newspapers and periodicals. The walls of their home are filled with work by their artist friends. Fit for a king Like many Brooklyn townhomes, Lefferts Avenue is a tale of turning straw into gold. This early 20th century townhouse has been lovingly restored, with warm wooden floors, high ceilings and original mouldings and pocket doors. Sink into enchanted slumber among the pillow-strewn sofa in the living room (the pillow cases are sewn from vivid African textiles purchased at neighbourhood shops) or dance your way through the harmonious mix of patterned woven rugs and antique furniture. A projector and movie screen make a night in at the movies a pleasant evening. The spacious open-plan kitchen is perfect for baking a blackbird pie or a charmed cake, and the back garden will dispel any lingering hex. The collections of antique toys, marionettes and games give a studio-turned-bedroom an air of whimsy. There are no goblins here, only shelves of books perfect for afternoon story time. Upstairs, the master bedroom is light-filled and airy, as pleasant a tower to fall asleep in as any. Into the woods Only four blocks from Prospect Park, Lefferts Avenue is an easy jaunt to the forest (or just the running path). For cultural offerings, the Brooklyn Museum of Art is only slightly farther afield. Browse for heirloom tomatoes at the Grand Army Plaza farmer’s market (free of both spells and pesticides) or enjoy the spectacle of the annual Caribbean Day parade that wends its way through the neighbourhood.

Home truths

  • This home has air-conditioning in all the bedrooms.
  • This home comfortably sleeps two adults, with an additional double sofabed in the third bedroom and single sofabed in the second bedroom bringing the maximum occupancy to five.
  • While there is no wardrobe in the second or third bedrooms, guests staying in these rooms will be provided with a hanging rail for their use.
  • There is a friendly neighborhood cat that visits this home. While he will not be inside the home during guest stays, he may sleep in the garden or sit by the kitchen window. He has been inside the home on occasion so this home may not be appropriate for people with severe allergies.
  • A representative from the electric company stops by once each month to read the meter in this home's basement - this occurs around the beginning of the month, and he'll be in and out in a jiffy.
