It took decades for the once-opulent mansion at 107 Prospect Park West to deteriorate into a neglected, pigeon-filled, shell of a building that lay abandoned since the 1980s, but after an intense salvage and renovation operation, it is hard to imagine that the address was ever in such a state of disrepair. Plywood construction barriers still block the building's Sixth Street stairway, porch, and entranceway, and the stairways are still covered in construction dust and protective cardboard, but brokers at Brown Harris Stevens opened the property over the weekend to prospective buyers.

We took a look at Apt. 3 in the building, a 3BR/2BA with 1,585 square feet of indoor space and 265 square feet of roof deck space that is accessible via an external stair case. We snapped one internal photograph of the living room that looks across Prospect Park West and into the park itself. The corner lot of the building affords a lot of light, and the living room features six windows ranging from 6' to 6'8"—three on PPW and another three along Sixth Street. Although the building was badly deteriorated, one of the things that was able to be salvaged is the existing 1884 window trim.
The master suite and bathroom take up the full area of the lower-profile annex structure on the left of the exterior photograph. The three windows arranged in a semi-circle take advantage of the third floors elevation and the falling slope of the neighborhood to provide a good view from the rear, away from Prospect Park. The seller is asking $1.65 million for Apt. 3, with monthly common charges of $669.
There are four other units available in the new building, ranging from a 1BR/1BA for $515,000, to a 4BR/2.5BA with private yard for $2.3 million. Official interior pictures should be available sometime later this week.
