West harbour Willow street gardens is a noble home moored at the cusp of Brooklyn. The wood beams and exposed brick speak of masterful strength, while fine-cut stone, burnished steel, and renowned mid-century design principles - including a rustic armchair of cow hide - that every urban explorer expects. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms laid out across a townhouse floor, it’s fantastically spacious and strikingly well lit without sacrificing a gram of glamour or convenience. So, then: to tide or to shore, darling wanderer? Idyllic brood Your hosts are a close-knit clan with roots in Europe. By day they are dedicated to creative pursuits; by evening, they cherish the opportunity to plan an overseas journey filled with adventure. Jelling stone A bulwark between the gentle waves that cascade the Brooklyn harbour and the inland settlements of Brooklyn Heights, Willow Street Garden’s might is just as you would expect. An open-plan living space encompasses gathering in the living room, and kitchen. The hefty, wooden beams overhead - the building’s originals - are the primary motif, while broad, bleached planks provide a subtle counterpoint underfoot. Expeditions to the end of the apartment reveal a guest bedroom with a charming ensuite and a white wood and glass panel door that leads to a private atrium. A master bedroom at the bow stands resolute and offers lovely tree lined neighborhood vistas. Until you ship away westward, what sweeter harbour is there than Willow Street Gardens?
