The Insider: Carroll Gardens Mini-House

THIS WEEK, my BROWNSTONER column spotlights a c.1900 brick row house by architects Delson or Sherman with some very special features: a wall of stained glass discs by Lexington, KY-based glass artist Frank Close; a new cherry staircase with wide lower steps that create the illusion of a grand stair; a skylit top floor with a stone-walled meditation room; a new custom kitchen with an orange-and-brown color scheme; and a wall of storefront glass which replaces the original rear wall and makes the pocket-sized garden seem part of the living space.

To see the whole house from bottom to top, head right on over here.
