It's a picture of minimalist Scandi style housed within a quintessential New York brownstone built in the 1800s, in one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Brooklyn – Fort Greene. Designed by a local architect to bring the calming presence of nature into the home, this pocket of tranquillity will knock your fluffy white socks off. Stepping in to look around at the decor, you'll find plenty of light wood furnishings and wood-slatted blinds, vibrant pops of colour, tasteful artwork and playful cloud-shaped cushions that we really loved. It's quiet, understated, and extremely functional. Enjoy a good book in the breathable and refreshing living space made of natural materials and traditional craftsmanship. Take a long soak in the stone and wood bathroom, whip up a few lite bites in the pristine island kitchen, or pen your thoughts at the antique public library desk – whatever you do around this peaceful apartment, you'll be perfectly at ease. Out back there is even a small terrace for some fresh air, enclosed by leafy trees for a naturally private space. The neighbourhood is authentically residential Brooklyn, lined with trees and townhouses with their iconic stoops. Take a wander by the casual eateries, hip bars and indie shops, before reaching the beautiful expanse of Prospect Park, only a twenty-minute stroll from your door.

About Clinton Hill

A lush, elegant retreat from the tumult of city life, Clinton Hill is located in Central Brooklyn, and offers the youthful energy of a leafy college town with a laid-back, genteel atmosphere. Walk along the beautiful Clinton Avenue or the main retail corridor, Myrtle Avenue, and you’ll find young parents pushing strollers, artists in paint-splattered clothes, and students enjoying an alfresco meal. You’ll find a greater diversity of architectural styles...
