168 Bergen Street is beautifully appointed and intentionally designed & configured as an optimal single family residence. On a tree lined Boerum Hill block in a row of homogenous brownstones, this home was built between 1856 and 1861 by William Alexander and James Hughes.

The townhouse is set back allowing for an ornate iron fence and a wide stoop entry to the parlor. French doors with headlights and a bracketed temple form invite you to the living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, large coat closet and elusive powder room. Two large custom glass doors open from the back parlor to the deck (suitable for al fresco dining) which is connected to the lush garden with a steel staircase.

On the garden floor you have a glass sliding wall that opens fully for a seamless entertaining and gathering space. The front garden floor houses a guest bedroom and full bathroom as well as additional closet space. The basement/cellar level is designed as a game room and gym with a large laundry room and a wine cellar.

The bedroom floors are on the top two floors. The primary suite is the full third floor with a bedroom large enough for a king size bed, night stands, dressing room and two walls of custom closets. Because of the generous townhouse width (22 foot) there is space for the separate home office with built in desk and shelving. The jewel of this floor however is the oversized bathroom with storage closet, double sinks, freestanding tub and a spacious glass and stone shower. The top floor has an open landing suitable as a playroom or study and has three bedrooms and two full baths, one of which has two sinks and the other is en suite.

The skylight brings light into the center of the house while the curved staircase although modern pays homage to the classic brownstone. The handsome and stately home is truly a rare find.
