6sqft covered the stunning traditional-yet-modern design found in this Park Slope Italianate beauty at 359 Bergen Street nearly three years ago; a gut renovation by townhouse titan Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design brought custom architectural detailing with the designer’s signature cool, clean backdrop and sophisticated, functional accents–and now it’s for sale, asking $4 million. The 13-room house is set up as a two-family home, with a two-bedroom income-producing garden apartment and three floors above for the owners.

This over-a-century-old home combines gilded-age glamour with the stylish modernity of 21st-century Brooklyn. The upper five-bedroom triplex showcases preserved and restored architectural details with a layout that’s geared toward modern living, with state-of-the-art mechanical systems and infrastructure.

The spacious, open parlor floor is anchored by a stunning wall of steel-framed casement windows that flood the space with light. Tall townhouse windows frame the front living room, and an original marble mantle surrounds a wood-burning fireplace. A vast dining area seats 17.

The standout kitchen is clearly the star here with top-of-the line appliances meant for cooking, custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, countertops clad in Blue de Savoie marble, a Pullman rolling ladder and a one-of-a-kind custom Grillworks indoor grill clad in Heath tiles. Off the kitchen, a rear deck is perfect for outdoor dining. A half-bath is tucked away on this floor as well.

The second floor offers a luxurious master bedroom suite and a smaller bedroom. A large portion of this floor is devoted to a light-filled bathroom with a Victoria + Albert freestanding tub, an original marble mantle and a Luna black marble-topped vanity. Adjacent is a separate large walk-in double shower and storage.

On the home’s top floor, generously sized bedrooms flank an open den; a gorgeously designed bath has double faucets, a marble-topped custom vanity and black penny round tiled floors. Up here also is a full-sized washer/dryer. Two large skylights–one is solar operated–bring in sunshine and fresh air.

A thoughtfully-renovated two-bedroom garden-floor apartment opens onto a lush, professionally designed and landscaped garden with connected bluestone patios, established perennial beds and river birch trees.

Throughout the home, mechanicals, plumbing and electric systems are all newly installed, including a Mitsubishi split HVAC system with Nest thermostats. A partially finished basement offers a cedar-lined closet and a storage room.
