Remember the cool old carriage house where Viola Davis’s character Delia lives in the movie Eat Pray Love?
Those scenes were filmed on location in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood inside what was once a firehouse in the 1800s.
It’s on the market, so let’s revisit the sets from the movie.
The Carriage House from “Eat Pray Love”
Julia Roberts played Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the best-selling memoir that was made into the movie.
One of the opening scenes shows her mingling at a party in Delia’s house (played by Viola Davis).
The listing says that the house features three loft-like floors with 12″ wide planked floors, beamed ceilings, skylights, and exposed-brick walls.
The house is bigger than it looks with nearly 6,000 square feet.
The listing notes that it’s currently split into two units but could be converted back into a single residence.
Speaking of Viola Davis, are you watching her new series How to Get Away With Murder? She lives in a beautiful old house on that show, too, that I’d love to get a closer look at.
The carriage house has been “used for multiple movie shoots,” but this is the only one I recognized. If you know of any others filmed here, let us know!
The listing description says:
This rare Cobble Hill Carriage House, a former 1840’s Firehouse, is what real estate dreams are made of in New York City. Featured in many famous films over the years, it is impressive in scale with a 25’ wide x 85’ footprint, and offers three loft-like floors without the inconvenience of vertical townhouse living.
The main floor weighs in at 2125 sq. ft. alone, and allows for an entertainment space unrivaled by ANY townhouse OR apartment in Brownstone Brooklyn.
Add to that the drama of massive exposed wood beams, arched windows, a charming greenhouse, a perennial garden, an oversized reclaimed-brick wood-burning fireplace, 12” wide wood-plank floors, double height ceilings, a terrace off the 2nd floor, and oversized skylights, and you have a one-of-kind property with the warmth and grandeur only found in historical homes, but the open layout of more modern living.
Currently configured as a two-unit home, with some very minor adjustments this home easily becomes a grand home with 4 to 6 bedrooms. It has been updated with central AC, and a Chef’s kitchen complete with a 48” Viking stove and granite countertops.
Additional features listed: Exposed Beam Ceiling and Double Height Ceilings, Parking Garage on Block w Monthly Spots, South Facing Garden and Terrace, Amazing Curb Appeal Close to All Transportation, Dramatic Staircase/Space for an Elevator, 12″ Wide Plank Oak Floors, Chef’s Renovated Kitchen, Huge Open Loft-Like Footprint, Reclaimed Brick Fireplace, and Super Flexible Layout.
They’re asking a little under $7 million.
Check the listing with Deborah Rieders of The Corcoran Group for photos and information.

*UPDATE: Norah Jones reportedly bought the carriage house for $6.25 million.
