What once was a day centre for children has been lovingly renovated into a cosy and contemporary apartment. Situated on a quintessential NYC brownstone block with young families and pups walking the streets, not only does this Park Slope home feel residential and homey, it's nearby some great restaurants and shopping. Take a seventeen-minute cab to the Brooklyn Bridge, walk to the leafy green expanse of Prospect Park in only eight minutes and still feel away from the clamouring tourists and nonstop traffic. Back home, our favourite spot is the large garden out back – complete with a quaint patio area with a dining table, chairs and a comfy outdoor sofa – it's the perfect space to enjoy a snack or glass of wine after your days out. Inside, there's an air of understated elegance with grey and silver tones, ornate mouldings and an original fireplace. Serve up a couple of cocktails from the drinks trolley and find a cosy space in the snug to play games or curl up and relax. For an authentic trip to Brooklyn, this spot ticks all the right boxes.
Home truths: *The outside garden is a shared space, although you'll have your own patio area
*It's possible to sleep three additional guests on sofa beds in the living room, although we think this home is better suited to a maximum of two guests
*A dog lives upstairs, so you may be able to hear her from time to time
*There are a few small steps down to reach the entrance of the apartment
