Tale old as time
We'll bet you haven’t heard this one – a classic Boerum Hill family home where every lovingly worn armchair and well-trod floorboard has a story to tell. Each nook holds cherished heirlooms and found treasures, creating a home that's as distinctive as the neighbourhood it's set in. From here, you're only a short stroll through Boerum Hill's friendly, tree-lined streets to a number of fantastic restaurants, boutiques, and antique stores.
Your hosts are a family of storytellers with an artistic streak passed down from their grandfather – you can see much of his art on the walls. Their home is a record of their journeys, hobbies, loves.
It's no tall tale to say that Dean Townhouse is as welcoming as they come. Posh armchairs and gilded mirrors sit comfortably beside antique pieces, and the charmingly slanted stairs and aged floorboards lend even more character to the more modern décor. The wide-open design of the kitchen suits family meals, and a pair of time-worn stools serve the breakfast bar. A dip in the fabulous vintage soaking tub is a must, and so is settling in around the fireplace (a fine alternative to the camp fire). When the day's account is through take your pick of spacious, well-appointed rooms. Each is fetchingly decorated to give a hint of the home's storied past.
