$8 Million Park Slope Mansion Tries Again

New, 22 comments

How's this for confidence in the Brooklyn market? The owners of 315 Garfield Place in Park Slope have decided to put the renovated 6,700-square-foot mansion back on the market for $8.15 million, just below the $8.5 million mark they tried to get for the house right as Lehman Brothers was imploding. Needless to say, it didn't quite work out then, but that was before Park Slope was New York's #1 neighborhood, baby! The 28-foot-wide whopper just steps from Prospect Park, "reminiscent of a London terrace house of the Regency period" per the Brown Harris Stevens listing, was picked up for just $3.275 million in 2006, and then the restorin' and renovatin' began. While an $8 million price tag in Brooklyn is eye-popping, it's by no means a borough record. In fact, another house in the neighborhood sold for $8.45 million last year. So who's the target market?

Manhattanites looking to flee to Brooklyn for a more calm urban experience. That's our best guess, anyway, because the brokerbabble is kind of like Park Slope for Dummies:

And for Brooklyn townhouse diehards, the floorplan. Build your own!

So, better luck selling this time around?
