Castle on a cloud
All is not what it seems in this spirited home. At first glance, the polished original features recall the most formal Brooklyn townhouse – rooms all clad with carved wood panelling. But look closer, and you’ll see that the modern additions might have been summoned up by one of whimsical imagination: funky furniture and fun playthings are hiding for all to seek. And outside, Park Slope is enchanted byways and sunny lawns. Whether you're strolling along the shady residential streets, or settling in at a local café, you'll soon find yourself beyond the scope of a tourist’s map.
Your hosts are a family who love their neighbourhood. When they're not playing in the park, or out and about in Park Slope, they’re travelling to unusual destinations.
The spell will be upon you from the moment you slip through Prospect Park III's iron gates. Inside the sculpted intricacies of the woodwork are fascinating, while throw pillows and art add bursts of colour – shaggy rugs and glossy tiles creating sensual texture. It's easy to fall into a reverie in the back garden, or drift into daydreams on the white couch. Kids will take to the play area, where a pair of chairs and a roll-top desk are just the right size, and even adults have to wind their way up the spiral staircase to the majestic master. Both bedrooms are touched with fantastic original details, like intricate parquet floors, mirrored fireplace mantles and charming bay window nooks.
This home spans over two floors with no elevator. Guests enter on the first floor and will find the living room, kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom, and powder room. The master bedroom is located on the second floor.
While there is no door on the master bedroom, this room is still quite private as it is located up a flight of stairs away from all other rooms of the home.
This home has air-conditioning in the sitting room and master bedroom only. Let us know if you'd like extra fans during your stay.
This home comfortably sleeps four adults, with an additional queen airbed that can be made up upon request bringing the maximum occupancy to six.
While there are no wardrobes in the bedrooms, guests will find hanging rails for their use.
