When they were popular in the 19th century, carriage houses provided shelter for not only the horses of the estates to which they belonged, but also many carriages, hay, tack, and other supplies necessary for the horse-drawn life. Today, these sturdily built buildings can be found throughout brownstone Brooklyn. Inspired by historic carriage houses but offering modern amenities, 323 Pacific Street blends the best of the old and the new. This modern-day Boerum Hill carriage house offers over 6,000 square feet of room, five bathrooms and a garden, as well as north- and south-facing roof terraces.
The house features a hand-crafted brick facade, private parking garage, elevator, and family rooms throughout, with seven bedrooms laid out on five levels. The ground floor has 11-foot ceilings, a sizable foyer, and a 700-square-foot chef’s kitchen/dining room that overlooks the rear garden. Reclaimed 200-year-old heartwood hemlock and bluestone floors give the kitchen/dining room a homey appeal, as does a large fireplace and a floor plan that leads to the 25-foot-wide private garden.
The lower floor offers a space large enough for a playroom, home theater, or home gym. It also includes a powder room and a laundry room. There are three bedrooms, as well as an additional laundry room, on the third level.
Farther up, the north-facing master suite features a 150-square-foot black walnut dressing room, along with a marble master bath with a soaking tub, steam shower, and dual vanity. The fifth level is a studio/den with 12-foot cathedral ceilings, and north- and south-facing terraces with city views. This floor has an additional gas fireplace and a windowed full bathroom with a teak shower. It can also be converted to a master suite because of its accessibility by elevator; in fact, all five levels of this Boerum Hill carriage house can be reached by the elevator.
