Last summer, Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams purchased a sprawling eight-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion along Ditmas Park’s Albemarle Road for $2.5 million. Pretty soon, an even grander mansion located on the same road will hit the market.
According to the New York Post, the 10,000-plus-square-foot classical mansion at 1305 Albemarle Road will hit the market on Friday, July 22nd asking $2.98 million. The seemingly endless 22-room home is composed of ten bedrooms, six bathrooms, a ballroom, library, and music room. There’s also a formal dining room, chef’s kitchen, sweeping living room with one of the home’s many large fireplaces, two-car garage, and lots of outdoor space. Of course, the house, built in 1905, maintains much of its original magnificence that include wooden floors throughout (in different forms that include mahogany, oak, cherry, and pine), a six-person hot tub, bay windows, spider windows, and 11-foot ceilings.
Aside from its obvious granduer, the house has a pretty fascinating history. It was reportedly occupied by oil business family the Ottavianos for over 50 years. It has also been the filming site of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Oscar-winning film Reversal of Fortune.
If the house sells for its asking price, it will gain the title of Prospect Park South’s most expensive home.
