The house at 2134 Ocean Parkway in Gravesend was the largest and most expensive freestanding residence in Brooklyn when it hit the market in May for $14 million. A few months on the market have cooled its ambition to set a borough record, however. The price of the 7BR, 6BA house got chopped this week by 23 percent, for a new ask of $10.75 million. The interiors? Still really weird.
Just as a reminder of what this house has to offer, here's one of our favorite bits from the brokerbabble. Step right in:
Immediately upon entry, one is greeted by a grand multi-level art-nouveau staircase accented by artisan wrought iron panels finished with newel posts. Above this, a substantial dome skylight allows natural light to permeate all three levels and a Vienna imported, hand-etched, crystal chandelier. The stunning tile inlay marble entry is flanked by living and dining spaces and encapsulated by a barrel ceiling supported by decorative, candlestick lit sconces and accented by traditional wainscoting. This room subtly leads to a kitchen equally apt for large families and entertaining. We're not sure anything in this house could fairly be described as subtle.
