Brooklyn Townhouse: Charming Home Tour

What kind of house would you live in if you could just up and move without any ties holding you back? I always thought it would be fun to live in an urban row house or city loft. I wouldn’t want to live there permanently since I’m not a city girl, but I think it would be an adventure to have a place in the city. Today we’re touring a Brooklyn townhouse that would be perfect for a weekend city place, or a permanent residence.

This home appears to have its original wood floors and the owners have painted the trim a cheery orange.

The kitchen has a slightly modern vibe and good workflow. Did you notice the ginormous tomato atop the refrigerator?

In the dining room a traditional chandelier is paired with a farmhouse table and more modern chairs. This Brooklyn townhouse has an eclectic mix of furnishings.

A weekend place in the city would provide opportunity to get creative with decorating. I’m kind of fond of this large fish painting about the chesterfield sofa. The glass light fixtures remind me of bubbles in the water.

The age of the home is revealed in its details – the transom windows, the slightly steeper steps of the staircase, and the worn wood floors.

Country furnishings complete an upstairs bedroom, but a minimalist effect creates a more modern feeling.

The bathroom vanity is outfitted with over-sized drawer and door pulls.

The claw foot tub is set right inside the shower. I kind of like this idea!

Here’s the outside of the Brooklyn townhouse. Nothing fancy, but the red brick, tall mullioned windows, and the wrought iron fence lend a bit of curb appeal.

  1. It would be nice to have a city house and a country house. I like the fact that they made it all theirs and didn’t worry about the colors they used. And I like the fun details.

  2. Two things catch my interest in this home. One, how I do love a “galley” kitchen, when one side of the kitchen is a long island, rather than a wall. I’ve previously lived in apartments and really liked the convenience of everything within arm’s reach in the galley layout. Secondly, how many bathroom designs I’m seeing that use the “wet room” bathroom style, with the tub and shower in the same “room” – and the fact that I think I like that idea also. How easy would that be to clean, especially with kids – almost like turning a garden hose on the entire space and walking away. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I like this home, although I am not a an of the colorful painted trim – and especially not of the way too big fish decor. Thanks for posting it.

  3. Quite unusual choices made for the home. Some I like and some I don’t. But I do like how the owner stuck to unusual choices throughout instead of just choosing one or two.

  4. I was born in Brooklyn and I am planning to go down for a look at the place I was raised in till age 5-1/2. I am in hopes of getting some info on a sibling who I have never met so I hope Brooklyn New York is good to me for this has been an ache I have had for many years wish me luck.

    • Hi Katherine! What an interesting story! I’ve never been to Brooklyn myself but hope to someday visit NYC and all its burroughs. I’ve only been to New York once and I was pretty young at the time and don’t remember much. I wish you lots of good luck with finding out more about your sibling. Hopefully one day soon you will meet face to face!

    Very interesting I like the fact they made it their own

  6. Marlene Stephenson says:

    They did they’re own thing and that’s good, but i stayed in a hotel one time downtown NYC and it never sleeps, so i don’t know.

  7. I really don’t like modern design but this townhouse was amazingly well designed and thought out. I am very impressed and inspired by it. Thanks for posting. And thanks again for sharing YOUR amazing story. ๐Ÿ™‚
