A Park Slope brownstone that grabbed headlines for its Pepto Bismol color hit the market for a sliver under $4.8 million, nearly double what the owners paid in September before they renovated the home and painted over the pink façade, StreetEasy shows.

The six-bedroom, four-bathroom townhouse at 233 Garfield Place is listed with Maria Mackin of Halstead Property. Mackin did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The two-family home is configured as a triplex resting over a one-bedroom garden rental but can be converted to a single-family residence, according to the listing.

The four-story brownstone, built in 1901, has been fully restored to include a chef’s kitchen, marble countertops and central heating and cooling. However, four wood-burning fireplaces, parquet floors and four mantels with glass mirrors have all been restored and preserved.

The current owner, identified in property records as JJA486 LLC, bought the home for $2.8 million. In November, the owner stripped the brightly-colored home of its trademark pink paint after receiving the city’s permission, news reports show.
