Tour a Stunning Elizabeth Roberts-Designed Cobble Hill Brownstone Just Listed for $11M

Cobble Hill, the Brooklyn neighborhood known for its vibrant life on Court Street, boasts beautiful brownstones just steps from the Brooklyn Bridge. And a new-old home has come to the market. Gut-renovated and redesigned by renowned architect/designer Elizabeth Roberts, the reborn circa-1850s Cobble Hill townhouse just listed for $11 million.

Asking no small sum, as is the norm for NYC properties, this Italianate-style home has many new features but also preserved delights like the marble mantle in the front parlor and now-restored facade. The renovation took roughly a year and a half to complete, which is impressively swift considering it was converted from four individual residences into the single-family home it is now. Roberts also added a three-story addition to the backside of the home, bringing the total space available to 5,100 square feet.

Once through the dramatic black front door, the house is like a breath of fresh air with its white walls and light wood floors. Double-height ceilings and walls of windows soak the kitchen in light, with design touches that transport you to the countryside incorporated as well. Ivy crawls along the walls and beadboard-paneled cabinets tie into the Vermont soapstone countertops to create a chic, rustic feel in the heart of Cobble Hill.

Each space holds exciting details for buyers to uncover. A blue powder room has materials from all over. Tiles from Mosaic House in New York, an antique marble basin from Chateau Domingue in Houston, and an Australian-made faucet from Brodware work together in the colorful space. Out of the home’s five floors, the top two hold all six bedrooms and four additional bathrooms. On the tippy top floor, the primary crowns the home with a kitchenette, walk-in closet, and a private terrace doing justice to the word ‘suite.’
