There’s something about carriage houses that’s particularly fascinating: It might be the arched doorways, brick facades, or the fact that they belong to an entirely different era. But this carriage house that has just listed in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District is extra special.

Built around 1895, the Romanesque Revival-style brick structure sits in a row of carriage houses, at 4 Hunts Lane. As Brownstoner points out, it was turned into a residence in the 1970s, and in 1997, city records show, its interiors were renovated by architect Leslie Gill.

The brokerbabble claims that the house has “charms beyond your wildest dreams,” and that statement is only slightly hyperbolic. The house is filled with lovely details like an oak and steel staircase, large arched windows, exposed beams, white exposed brick, terra cotta tiles in its bathrooms, and high ceilings. It has three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and two small outdoor areas, one next to the kitchen and one in the basement.

It’s asking $5.45 million, with the tax bill coming in at $1,044/month. Deborah L Rieders, Sarah Shuken, and Raquel Lomonico of Corcoran have the listing.
