This four-bedroom house along the waterfront in Bay Ridge has a problem: it's addicted to marble. (Or at least some material that's a pretty good imitation.) Deeply veined varietals blanket the bathroom walls, the living room floors, the kitchen cabinets, and more. It's kind as if a quarry explodeda deeply tacky quarry, not like the one One57's designers visited in Italy to handpick slabs for tubs. A completely stocked wood-paneled bar in the basement is one redeeming feature. The facade of the 7,400-square-foot ranch-style home is also made of stone, but it's hard to focus on that agglomeration of rock while your eyeballs are still recovering from the inside. It's asking $4,800,000.
