36 Garden Place, a beautifully restored single-family townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, was listed last year for $10 million, an ambitious ask that failed to draw any buyers. Now the house is back with a whole new listing, new pictures, and a reduced asking price of $8.25 million. The Wall Street Journal, also has some more details about the renovation. The owners, a highly influential mergers and acquisitions lawyer and his wife, purchased the house in 1985 for $824,000. At one point they moved to London for three and a half year and were considering selling it, but instead decided to take the opportunity to do a gut renovation, turning what was a three-family home into a single-family, replacing the wiring and plumbing, and removing the rear deck to open up the backyard. They also the restored the house's wealth of original details including the marble fireplaces, chimney, moldings, iron fence, and facade. The basement was finished with a 420-bottle wine cellar and dark room.
