In this beautiful $5.95M Park Slope brownstone, the kitchen is the star

From its modern open-plan layout to the charming rear garden, there's a lot to like at this Park Slope brownstone, which underwent a gut renovation by renowned architect Elizabeth Roberts in 2015. But the home's true star is the kitchen, a stunning sun-lit space with a wall of casement windows, top-of-the-line appliances, and a wood-fired grill built inside an original wood-burning fireplace.

Rent This Charming Cobble Hill Cottage With Private Garden and Backyard Studio for $7,250/Month

Constructed in the 1870s on a short, private block of Cobble Hill, the 34 modest Gothic cottages of Warren Place Mews were built by wealthy merchant, philanthropist and housing advocate Alfred Tredway White as homes for workingmen and their families. 21st century prices for these unique "private estates" that share an English courtyard have reached the millions; renting doesn’t come cheaply either, with the asking rent on the three-story, eleven-foot wide two-bedroom home at 1 Warren Place at $7,250/month. That may seem a bit more reasonable when you see the home’s gorgeous renovation helmed by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design and landscaped yard with your own private “writers’ compound or tiny playroom” at the back.

Elizabeth Roberts Combines Styles for a Traditional Yet Hip Park Slope Brownstone

One of the best things about design and architecture in New York City is the constant flow of culture and influence, and the combination of styles and custom architectural detailing found inside this Italianate brownstone reflects this ever-present vibrancy and rhythm. The home is situated on quaint Bergen Street in Park Slope and recently underwent a gut renovation led by the design team at Elizabeth Roberts Design/Ensemble Architecture. The structure that now boasts four bedrooms is perfect for a growing family (plus it has a rental apartment on the garden level), and its interior is decorated with a combination of cool muted tones and dark bold accents.

Elizabeth Roberts Brings Light Back into This 163-Year-Old Fort Greene Townhouse

When Allison Freedman Weisberg and Peter Barker-Huelster bought this Fort Greene townhouse, it was the opposite of the home they envisioned. The couple wanted a house that was bright and uncluttered. Instead, the 163 year-old house was dark and decaying with its roof and back wall about to cave in. The family enlisted Elizabeth Roberts Design/Ensemble Architecture to put air and light back into the house, resulting in this indoor/outdoor blend thanks to a two-story addition, which features a wall of windows on the second floor and an operable glass door on the ground floor.

21st Street Loft: Past-Era Panache Gets a Modern Update

This townhouse duplex may have been built at the turn of the century, but you'd never guess that from its distinct bohemian vibe. A clean, contemporary makeover gave the 21st Street Loft space a new life back in the 1960s, when two early 1900s townhouses were turned into a mid-century masterpiece that spans two levels with a modern floor plan. The older renovation featured a number of unique handmade solutions geared towards the challenges of daily life, and much care was taken to preserve them. But Ensemble Architecture's most recent refresh has brought this home to a whole new level, drastically transforming the loft into a much brighter and more inviting space for modern family living.
See how the space gets a fresh new look while keeping its warmth and creative vibe

Lovitt Loft: Space for Living, Art and Commerce in a Former Tribeca Garage

Many of us entertain fantasies about loft living in a former garage or an old warehouse, but few of us would dare take on the task of turning one into a comfortable space. That's why when the owner of this Tribeca automotive garage wanted to create a live-work-gallery space, he turned to architect Elizabeth Roberts to take on the task. Roberts, known for her stylish townhouse interiors, managed to not only carve out several beautiful spaces for living, but functional and flexible areas for display and commerce for the owner who wanted to rent out the majority of the ground floor space as a photo studio.
