The mansion at 107 Prospect Park West has seen better days. Much better days: it's been vacant since the early 1980s and has the interiors to match, with one estimate placing repair costs around $225 to $300/square foot. Still, the house?once a single-family mansion, then an eight-unit apartment building?had worthy enough bones and classic enough ornamentation to sell for $2.7 million this summer, and now Brownstoner has the scoop on what's next for the property. As rumored, it's being converted to condos?five units, to be exact, and the conversion, which aims to restore "as much of the original detail as physically possible," should be done next summer. We're eager to see the results, but we do wish an aspiring mansion-owner had taken this one on instead.
