A Crown Heights castle with original details on a pretty, mansion-lined street across from the Brooklyn Children's Museum sold for $1.4 million in early 2013, and when the sale hit public record, BK to the Fullest warned its readers: "Underestimate this neighb' at your own peril." In the year since, the castle got gutted on the inside and ultimately transformed into six one- and two-bedroom condos, which just hit the market starting at $449,000. Luckily, 875 Saint Marks retained a tad of its predecessor's historic charm; listing photos show exposed brick, stained glass, and oval dining nooks surrounded by windows. The most expensive unit is a 1BR/2BA duplex asking $659,000, while units B ($499K) and 2B ($475K) have private outdoor space.
Here's more about the interiors:
Parlor floor residences offer soaring ceiling heights, and select units showcase oval-shaped dining alcoves, original restored exposed brick walls and decorative fireplaces. Multiple residences offer exclusive use of private outdoor gardens or terraces, and others feature masterfully restored stained glass windows. The elegant interior design boasts natural white oak hardwood floors, white and blue custom shaker-style cabinetry accented with oil-rubbed bronze hardware, white Ceasarstone countertops and a top-of-the-line stainless steel appliance package, which includes Bertazzoni ranges with Faber hoods, Fisher-Paykel counter depth refrigerators and Electrolux dishwashers.
