Typically, pricechopping happens more incrementally than this, but then again, there's nothing typical about 2458 National Drive in Mill Basin. The gated waterfront compound, built by a Colombo crime family associate and currently owned by the family of the "Russian-American Paris Hilton," just saw its price drop precipitously from $30 million to $17 million. The property hit the market just over a year ago and got a new brokerage in May, but this is the first time the price has changed. Highlights still include: "circular meditation room," "indoor parking for four cars and two boat slips," and a number of other features better seen than described.
And don't worry—even after losing almost half its asking price, it's still the most expensive house in Brooklyn. Any takers?
