There's a funny thing about these fancy Brooklyn townhouses that have been setting records and trading for all cash and spawning bidding wars. If they're on the market for a few months, and they don't sell, you... raise the price? Well, that's what Halstead has done to sell this 17-room townhouse at 267 Sixth Avenue. After listing the ornate mansion, made up of an owner's triplex and three-bedroom rental unit, for $6.5 million back in May (and that was after a 250K price hike), brokers took it off the market for a spell this summer, only to re-list it for $7.3 million late last week. In its 135-year history, it's had only four owners, and one longtime occupant was the Swedish American Athletic Club, hence the billiard room, bowling alley, wet bar, and 90-foot ballroom with more green carpeting than should be allowed in such a classy joint. Will it sell at its new ask?
