Can you say "dream home"? This mansion, which just hit the market for $11 million, is basically the Platonic ideal of Brooklyn townhouses: It's enormous, sitting on a large lot and spread out over 7,000 square feet; it has a ton of original details (all that wood, pocket doors, etc.); and it's perfectly situated on Prospect Park West, with views of Litchfield Villa.
It also has something of an unusual backstory, per the New York Post, which first reported the sale. The home was built at the turn of the 20th century and has been owned by the same family for a century, but recently got a gut renovation, presumably in anticipation of this sale (the listing says the house has "just undergone a total, architecturally curated custom renovation blending painstakingly preserved original detail with superb modern craftsmanship and design," and it's lovely.)
There are too many features to list in one post, but here are some of the stand outs: a ton of outdoor space, including a ground-floor patio; a full-floor master suite with lots of closet space; a large parlor floor; a chef's kitchen; and "1,500 square foot partially above ground cellar ready to be used as a gym, screening room, wine cellar, or offices." Yes, it's really expensive, but for once, this is a house that actually seems worth the price.
