Park Slope Mansion with 90-Foot Ballroom Asks $6.5 Million

New, 11 comments

Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses to hit the market over the past week. Got tips? Send 'em here.

? 267 Sixth Avenue (definitely not to be confused with 267 Sixth Street, also known as Hot Karl Fischer's Landmark Park Slope), a 7,200-square-foot, 135-year-old mansion in Park Slope, served as the Swedish American Athletic Club from 1912 to around 1970 and contains a 90-foot-long ballroom with a huge wet bar and green carpeting that makes it kind of look like a golf fairway. There are also 63 windows (somebody counted) and all kinds of original details. It's asking $6.5 million.

? The owner of this four-story (plus roofdeck) house in Carroll Gardens bought it for $620,000 last March and got right to work on a thorough renovation, putting it back on the market a mere 14 months later for $3.95 million. The renovation removed any original details (if there were any in the first place) and went a simple, modern route, also decking the whole place out with speakers, iPod docks, and outdoor lighting.

? And in Brooklyn Heights, a former schoolhouse with windows facing every direction comes with a rear carriage house that's used as a garage. It was recently renovated, but managed to keep a few of its original details (mostly the exposed brick). Currently it's configured as a two-family and it wants $3.2 million.
