Midcentury style meets New York’s horse-drawn history at this former carriage house in Brooklyn, which has listed for $5.45m.
The New York property makes the most of the 160-year-old building’s ample space, with double-height rooms converted into light-filled living spaces, topped with wooden beams and framed by white-painted brickwork.
A complete renovation has seen timber and steel staircases installed, alongside other classic midcentury modern details including vintage teak cupboards in the kitchen and bathroom. Black wooden flooring completes the look.
As well as the Brooklyn property’s three bedrooms, it includes a separate office and a basement studio space – with its outdoor patio area – currently being used as an artist’s workshop. Corcoran has the listing.
