This Grand, Flowery Remsen Street Brownstone Wants $6.2M

New, 57 comments

This new-to-market townhouse is pretty Old World, so if you're into marbleized fireplaces, molding that doesn't confine itself to the perimeter of the ceiling, flowery stenciled wall decoration, and elegant chandeliers, you're in luck. The Italianate, 25-foot-wide facade of 37 Remsen Street hides a 7,000-square-foot single-family mansion, with eight bedrooms and 8.5 baths. "This regal residence possesses all the charm of yesteryear with updated mechanicals/systems throughout," goes the brokerbabble, perhaps in an attempt to justify its asking price: $6,200,000. There's an outdoor space off the cheery yellow kitchen, as well as a garden. The cellar level comes renovated, too, with eight-foot-high ceilings, a gym, laundry room, and a full bathroom. There's space for a media room or wine cellar. Those too-chintzy details can always be painted over, right?
