Once upon a time, in a leafy neighbourhood in Brooklyn, there was a storybook home known for its antique charm and hidden delights. Lefferts Avenue offers easy access to adventure in the enchanted forests of Prospect Park, culture at Brooklyn Academy of Music, or tranquility among the blossoms of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but the magic begins within its walled garden and two floors filled with colour and light. There’s space enough here for a giant, with three bedrooms whose soft mattresses would satisfy the most demanding princess. Whether you’re seeking beanstalks or golden eggs from the Grand Army Plaza farmer’s market or just an excellent espresso, Lefferts Garden is a vibrant neighbourhood that will quickly cast a winning spell

Brooklyn

Let down your hairOnce upon a time, in a leafy neighbourhood in Brooklyn, there was a storybook home known for its antique charm and hidden delights. Lefferts Avenue offers easy access to adventure in the enchanted forests of Prospect Park, culture at Brooklyn Academy of Music, or tranquility among the blossoms of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but the magic begins within its walled garden and two floors filled with colour and light. There's space enough here for a giant, with three bedrooms whose soft mattresses would satisfy the most demanding princess. Whether you're seeking beanstalks or golden eggs from the Grand Army Plaza farmer's market or just an excellent espresso, Lefferts Garden is a vibrant neighbourhood that will quickly cast a winning spell.Illustrious enchantmentYour hosts are both acclaimed illustrators whose work has appeared in children's books as well as prominent newspapers and periodicals. The walls of their home are filled with work by their artist friends.Fit for a kingLike many Brooklyn townhomes, Lefferts Avenue is a tale of turning straw into gold. This early 20th century townhouse has been lovingly restored, with warm wooden floors, high ceilings and original mouldings and pocket doors. Sink into enchanted slumber among the pillow-strewn sofa in the living room (the pillow cases are sewn from vivid African textiles purchased at neighbourhood shops) or dance your way through the harmonious mix of patterned woven rugs and antique furniture. A projector and movie screen make a night in at the movies a pleasant evening. The spacious open-plan kitchen is perfect for baking a blackbird pie or a charmed cake, and the back garden will dispel any lingering hex.The collections of antique toys, marionettes and games give a studio-turned-bedroom an air of whimsy. There are no goblins here, only shelves of books perfect for afternoon story time. Upstairs, the master bedroom is light-filled and airy, as pleasant a tower to fall asleep in as any.Into the woodsOnly four blocks from Prospect Park, Lefferts Avenue is an easy jaunt to the forest (or just the running path). For cultural offerings, the Brooklyn Museum of Art is only slightly farther afield. Browse for heirloom tomatoes at the Grand Army Plaza farmer's market (free of both spells and pesticides) or enjoy the spectacle of the annual Caribbean Day parade that wends its way through the neighbourhood.
