Shot Through the Heart
Pretty as a picture, Park Slope epitomizes the best of the laid-back Brooklyn scene, and our host's luxurious townhouse is right in the middle of it. You'll find the streets less busy, the food worth traveling for, and everything is on soft focus. The crowning attraction is the landscape of Prospect Park itself, Frederick Law Olmsted's magnum opus after he designed Central Park, though you don't even have to go that far to discover greenery: the house comes with its own picturesque back terrace.
Our hosts live in this four floor townhouse with their two children. He's a start-up guy who's had luck with the long shots and she's a head hunter with a flair for filling the various apertures at a company. Their style is bold, tasteful and fun - three elements that join tripodal with a beautiful end result.
You'll notice our hosts' clever eye for photography as soon as you enter – the whimsical art’s a major theme in the home's decor. Also pleasantly ubiquitous are the home's modish light fixtures - there's nary a dark room in this retreat. Just off the first floor's purple kitchen, an arrow light fixture with glowing bulbs recalling a touch of retro draws your attention to a major focal point: the leafy back garden perfect for unwinding after a long day in the city.
If developing your tan is a concern, the master bedroom also features a lofted terrace. A bright glass chandelier will have you feeling like you've met the paparazzi every time you leave the room. Make your way upstairs to where the children's rooms are sure to please with their spacious ceilings and funky art. Your entourage will also enjoy the subterranean playroom, guaranteed to leave smiles on their faces that will last long into any group photo.
Still Life with Croissant
The food in Brooklyn tends to be low-profile, with bakeries, locavore restaurants and some of the best coffee in the world. The wine bars aplenty will have you saying cheese (if you order it), though if you like your restaurants in a sterling frame, Manhattan's close enough that you can be there in a flash. Be sure not to miss the neighbourhood bar Freddie's, so beloved by its clientele that it was moved wholesale to a new location when it lost its lease.
This home features four floors. The master bedroom is on the second floor and the boy's bedroom, the girl's bedroom and the guest bedroom are on the third floor.
The minimum stay length for this home is seven nights.
