    An attractive late Romanesque Revival brownstone in the Park Slope Historic District has a mixture of fine original details, modern updates and antique finishes. It’s at 462 14th Street at the southernmost end of the historic district on a park block.

    A two-family set up as a single-family home with double parlors, a wet bar and powder room on the parlor level, it has a recently redone eat-in kitchen in the latest style on the garden level with a white marble-topped center island. Among the other finery such as elaborately bordered hardwood floors, the kitchen has a butler’s pantry with a built-in dish cupboard and a cute little red brick sunroom through pocket doors in a rear extension. The garden is landscaped and has a herringbone patterned brick patio and a pathway through planting beds.

    The updates in the bathrooms here are quite exceptional, with ornate mosaic tile work and a deliberately recherché vanity installed in what appears to be an antique cabinet. The home’s six mantels are nice as well, and include wood and slate ones, as well as a tidy brick fireplace in the kitchen that would have originally housed a built-in wood- or coal-burning range.

    The top floor contains two bedrooms with all the original trimmings, two bathrooms, an office and seven closets, one of them cedar. The bathrooms have been beautifully renovated in keeping with the style of the house and include impressive fixtures, mosaic tile and a stained glass window. The house’s updated mechanicals include central air and a Nest thermostat.

    462 14th Street is one of a row of three built in the 1890s with characteristics of the late Romanesque Revival, according to the designation report. It has rough-cut stone bands, an elaborate portico with pairs of bracketed columns, and slightly arched windows (aka “pseudo three-centered arches,” if you want to get technical). It shares a deep cornice with its neighbors, which are red brick — interestingly, the bricks appear molded, with a rusticated face — with brownstone trim.

    The townhouse last changed hands in 1998, for a sum history does not record — or at least online records. Now it’s asking $3.9 million in a listing from Cecilia Cina of Halstead. Will the market bear it?
