Live like a robber baron (or at least sleep like one) courtesy of Jessica and Doug Warren, who restored a 19th century Clinton Hill mansion built by the Pfizer family and now rent out rooms to travelers. Ninteenth century opulence meets 21st century Brooklyn in the couple's landmarked 10,000-square-foot historic brownstone, located on a tree-lined street in Clinton Hill. Working with Neuhaus Design , Jessica Warren (she's a designer herself; see her work at JP Warren Interiors ) mixed modernist pieces by Marcel Wanders and Norman Cherner throughout the interiors, overhauled the baths and the kitchen, and created a gracious, low-key ambience. Prices start at $220 per night; go to Airbnb for more information. Photography by Peter Margonelli , except where noted. Above: Marcel Wanders' Knotted Chair occupies a corner of the living room. Above: An eclectic mix of pieces animates the living room. Above: A minimalist marble counter anchors the kitchen. Above: A collection of Eva Zeisel ceramics.
