While meandering along the tranquil, tree-lined blocks of Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park West neighborhood, it’s easy to forget you’re in a city known for its stoops. In its stead are the spacious front porches and gardens of three-story Victorian homes that seem more Outer Banks than outer-borough. This pocket of urban suburbia is home to Eve's Bed and Breakfast, a charming house built in 1917 that's been converted into four apartments–three for guests and one for the owner, an Argentinean-born New Yorker named Eve whose decorative sensibilities tend toward gilded-age flamboyance. The larger guest apartment, a very pink two-bedroom space with its own kitchen, a chandeliered dining room and a living room with a small bar, takes up the entire second floor. The upper apartment is smaller, though no less colorful, and includes a large master bedroom with a gas-burning fireplace, its own full kitchen and a palatial bathroom that compares favorably with many Manhattan studios in size.Pros
