Here’s an attractive Italianate brownstone with a thoughtful gut renovation that opens up the main living space, connecting the original details with modern additions. Designed by Gowanus-based Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design, known for renovations of historic townhouses, it’s located at 359 Bergen Street in the northern end of Park Slope.
The home’s new look, which we featured on the Insider a while back, is most evident on the parlor floor, which is completely open, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a rustic-modern kitchen in the back. There are two wood-burning fireplaces, one at the front of the parlor and one framed by dark blue tile and outfitted with a custom grill — a Roberts’ signature — in the kitchen.
The grill is flanked by floor-to-ceiling cabinets, and an island with seating faces a wall of steel-frame windows that looks out on the deck.
The master suite has a white marble mantel framed by built-ins. A walk-in closet serves as a pass-through to the large master bath, which has a Victoria + Albert freestanding tub in the center, white marble mantel and black-and-white cement tile floor. Through a door is a double shower.
Two other bedrooms have bold splashes of color, a pair of windows and large closets. A den, not pictured, connects them.
The children’s bathroom on the top floor has a double faucet sink, tub, black tile and black-and-white doodle wallpaper by Saul Steinberg for Schumacher. Two skylights can be found on the top floor, including a solar-sensitive one that can automatically open and close to admit fresh air.
Configured as a triplex over a two-bedroom garden rental, which is not pictured, the house has Nest thermostats, Mitsubishi split systems and new mechanicals. The cellar is partially finished, according to the listing, and the garden has a bluestone patio.
Located three blocks from the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, the home last changed hands in 2013 for $1,900,999. Brown Harris Stevens’ Lee Solomon has the listing, which is asking $4 million. Like it?
