The house itself is spare, but the atrium is a nifty bit of open space

Houses in New York City often live many lives—especially in historic neighborhoods—and this Park Slope stunner, on the market for $3.99 million, is no exception.

According to the listing, it was built in 1895 as a carriage house, and transformed into a garage just 10 years later. It also served as an artists’ studio and a repair shop before assuming its current form: that of an architect-designed, minimalist hideaway with a nifty inner atrium.

That atrium—which is reminiscent of the one found at Philip Johnson’s Rockefeller guest house—is on the home’s first floor, and separates a home office from the rest of the living area, which includes a spacious living room and kitchen. (That space is excellent for home cooks, with plenty of storage space and new, high-end appliances.) There’s also still a garage built into the first floor.

On the second floor, the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, as well as a terrace that overlooks the atrium. Two additional bedrooms (and another bathroom) round out the space, which also has a washer/dryer and a skylight in a hallway to let even more light in.

This minimalist home is located at 331 4th Street in Park Slope, and is listed with Corcoran’s Judith Lief for $3.985 million.
