Set on a quiet, tree-lined block, 238 Bergen Street is a landmarked Italianate-style single-family townhouse dating back to 1855. The 20' by 45' home has been renovated to a discerning standard and serves in its original capacity as a grand 3,330 square-foot, five-bedroom, three-bathroom, single-family residence. The entire front facade, including the brick and cornice, was restored in the last year, resulting in a lovely polished appearance. Positioned on a 100'-deep lot, a lush, landscaped private garden completes the home, a verdant oasis in the heart of Boerum Hill. The formal entry to the home is on the parlor level, where 10' ceilings and an open floor plan give visitors an immediate sense of the home's grand proportions. At the rear, an oversized south-facing casement window overlooks the garden and sheds all-day light over the eat-in chef's kitchen. Complete with an 8-knob LaCanche range, tile by Mosaic House, a suite of top-end integrated appliances and a generous island with seating, the kitchen is the perfect place to gather with family or with friends. Separated by original pocket doors, the living space is centered on an original marble mantle and framed by classic oversized parlor windows. Other details like an ornate arched entryway coupled with the original entry door create a warm juxtaposition with the modern conveniences thoughtfully installed throughout in more recent years. The garden level has its own entrance with a foyer or mud room. Here, stunning black and white encaustic tile floors greet you; they are solid and warm underfoot. They lead to a quiet home office or bedroom toward the front of the home, and to a cozy den space, anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and overlooking the garden, at the rear. Floor-to-ceiling casement doors create an indoor-outdoor flow, perfect for the warmer months. This level enjoys access to a wet bar and full bathroom, which has been finished with a vanity by Waterworks and hand-painted wallpaper by Zuber. The second floor of the home is dedicated to the principal suite. With three windows facing south over the yard, the bedroom is both sunny and quiet. There is room enough for a casual seating space, too. A walk-in closet/dressing room leads to the windowed primary bathroom, finished with top-end fixtures and in beautiful Calacatta Paonazzo marble slabs. The secondary bedroom wing comprises the top floor of the home. Here, three generously-sized bedrooms share a pass-through double-vanity bathroom with beautiful tile floors by De Ferranti. Each bedroom has ample storage space, and two of the three have spacious walk-in closets. Multiple skylights on this level bring natural light into the home's center and exposed rough-hewn ceiling beams add warmth to the space. Additional home highlights include a full-sized laundry room with a wash sink and folding area on the second level, central heating and air, radiant heat floors on on the garden and parlor levels, and a full-sized basement for storage.
