The houses that line the cul-de-sacs of Brooklyn Heights are the stuff of suburbia-in-NYC dreams, and an old carriage house on quaint College Place that just hit the market is no exception. The townhouse at no. 14 last sold in 2012 for $5 million, but returns to the market sporting a major renovation—and a major price increase to $11.5 million. The listing goes on to describe a top-to-bottom renovation by architects Delson or Sherman that included some ingenious updates like a television-hiding mirror above the living room’s mantle, and an inviting kitchen that conceals tons of storage.

The carriage house covers about 5,065 square feet and includes three bedrooms, two of which are on the second floor and a third-floor master suite, as well as four-and-a-half bathrooms. The living room and master bedroom each let out onto private outdoor space, a backyard and two terraces. The carriage house also comes with a one-car garage, a dedicated laundry room, and a structural staircase framed by a skylight and decorated with a three-story light fixture designed Lindsey Adelman.

A finished basement hides a home gym, walk-in cedar closet, a full bathroom, and an additional living or sleeping area. The townhouse’s similarly-impressive neighbor hit the market for $9 million in 2013.
