This Midwood townhouse was listed in 2010 for $1.5 million, but failed to entice any buyers. Now it's willing to try again, with an asking price of $1.895 million, hoping that in 2014 people will look more favorably on foyer fountains, double staircases, and enormous chandeliers. The owner purchased the property in 1991 and had the 6BR/4BA house custom built (no kidding) in 1994 "by one of the finest Architects of New York City," whose name, apparently, is not important. We should probably just let the brokerbabble take it from here:
