Although it doesn't hold a candle to the true prize of Mill Basin, this 7BR/5BA waterfront mansion is still the kind of place that you don't expect to find anywhere in Brooklyn (and at $2.99 million, it's one tenth the price). With a brick patio, backyard, deck, cabana, and private marina, the property has as much to offer outside as it does inside, where the first floor is separated into a large eat-in kitchen, living room, formal dining room, and library. The upper two floors are mostly bedrooms. It also features a staircase of "casual elegance," which is one of our favorite types of elegance.
