In a strange turn of events that matches this Brooklyn Heights townhouse's confused interiors, 26 Garden Place has sold for $5.45M, just a month after its price was reduced to just $4.95M. The initial asking price? $5.55M. Was there a bidding war that pushed the price back up near ask or did some poor sap just not see the new price? Maybe we'll never know, but, despite the townhouse's schizophrenic interiors, we still have a special place in our heart for the well executed rear garden, a fitting addition to a house on Garden Place. The buyer is a corporate M&A lawyer with the white-shoe firm of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, so chances are it was the bidding war after all.
