This bright, loft-like Cobble Hill condo pulls off a pretty neat trick: It’s on the ground floor (giving it a private garden) and it also has the penthouse perk of an enormous skylight and a private roof terrace just above. How is this possible, you ask? The apartment occupies the rear extension of a 25-foot-wide brownstone at 56 Bergen Street, combining penthouse perks and garden level access. The two-bedroom 1,413 square-foot home is at the crossroads of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights and Fort Greene, within walking distance to everything from Trader Joe’s to the Promenade and antique shops on Atlantic Avenue.

A gracious entry foyer offers abundant storage in addition to a separate 64-square-foot storage closet. A sprawling central living/dining space has 11-foot ceilings and a massive skylight above, making the best of the open space. The home’s sunny, modern interiors were designed by Caterina Francisca.

The kitchen is sleek and well-appointed with a double sink, dishwasher, water filtration system and oversized fridge. There’s plenty of storage here, too, including a pantry, and there’s a vented washer/dryer. The apartment is cooled by a ductless central air-conditioning system.

On the opposite side of the living room are two bedrooms; the larger master offers access to the private back yard, great for summer mornings.

And that penthouse perk: A short climb brings you to a magical private roof terrace surrounded by mature plantings, flowers and herbs all set up for success with an irrigation system in place.
