If you’re looking for inspiration to complete your spring cleaning, why not take one of Brooklyn’s house tours? The admission price benefits the corresponding neighborhoods’ grassroots community organizations and you’ll get an exclusive peek into the borough’s best homes. Perhaps you’ll come away with inspiration for a few design or decorating changes of your own.
Like pages from House and Garden magazine, these homes are carefully appointed, the gardens meticulously groomed and the owners swelled with pride and ready to welcome you into their castles. An interior of one of the homes on the Brooklyn Heights House Tour is shown above.
The tours are usually held rain or shine, but call to confirm in the case of inclement weather. Reservations are highly recommended. Generally, children under 13, except for infants in front packs, will not be permitted inside the houses and no interior photographs are allowed.
