The owner of this immaculate Brooklyn townhouse at 36 Garden Place has been a partner at Simpson, Thatcher & Bartlett for more than 30 years, and was recently named one of the country's most influential mergers & acquisitions lawyers. For the past 25 years, he and his wife have been living in this house on one of the most charming streets in Brooklyn Heights. Recently renovated, the home reflects conservative taste—save for some avant garde artwork—with filigreed wallpaper, formal window treatments, antique clocks, crystal chandeliers, and silver service. Listed for $10M, the five-bed, seven-bath house would set a record for the block if it sells at this price, more than double the previous record, which sold for $4.9M back at the height of the market in 2007.
