Joining Riverdale and Central Park West among the New York City spots cool enough to have castles is Crown Heights. Or, excuse us, the Loire Valley of Brooklyn. That's how the brokerbabble for this new listing at 1372 Dean Street would prefer us to think of it:
Live like a French king on the Loire Valley! Own your own castle, complete with slate-tiled turret. Semi-attached three story landmarked home on an over-sized lot with parking. 4,300 square feet of luxury living on three floors plus a complete basement. Lot is 30 by 114 feet. Lovely restored mantels, stained glass and oh, those deliciously curved walls. Legal five family but will be delivered vacant. In Crown Heights North Historic district. All mechanicals recently upgraded. Points for rapt listing prose?and at $1.3 million, including parking, the asking price doesn't seem so bad either. Aspiring lords and ladies could perhaps create a single-family mansion or just choose to fill the place with serfs.
