This townhouse feels more like an old-world NYC mansion, and at $11 million, you wouldn’t blink at the price in Manhattan, but for a Brooklyn townhouse, it’s expensive. (Not THE most expensive, which was $15.5 million last year, but UP there.) But once you look at it, it might seem like a 2016 bargain (it will certainly seem a 2036 deal) It’s HUGE. Spread out over 7,000 square feet of original details and perfectly situated on Prospect Park West, with views of Litchfield Villa. It’s has been owned by the same family for a century (I once owned a Clinton Hill brownstone with a friend as only the fourth owners since 1869, and I thought that was pretty unusual.) It’s recently had a gut renovation, according to the listing it has,
“just undergone a total, architecturally curated custom renovation blending painstakingly preserved original detail with superb modern craftsmanship and design.”
Nice job. Besides being on the park, it’s got a nice backyard space, a full-floor master suite with lots of closet space (not the case in the brownstones originally) a giant parlor floor, chef’s kitchen, and 1,500 square foot cellar ready to be turned into your own private gym, screening room, wine cellar, or office. Kinda pricey –and kinda perfect.
