A lavish Park Slope mansion that was once asking $15 million, is back on the market for $8.995 million, after more than a year of not finding a buyer. This is now the second price cut for the 19th century mansion; the owners decided to list their house with Corcoran this past summer, when the townhouse was asking $9.995 million. Now, they’ve gone back to Douglas Elliman, and are asking $1 million less for the house.

Built in 1888, this Romanesque Revival house at 838 Carroll Street was designed by CPH Gilbert, known for his designs of townhouses and mansions during this period. While the brownstone exterior of the house remains intact, inside, the house has received a thoroughly modern makeover in recent years.

Currently the townhouse is set up as a garden-level apartment, and a quadruplex above. In all, this 8,200 square-foot home comes with eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 13 wood-burning fireplaces, among other features. It still ranks as one of Brooklyn’s priciest properties for sale. Will this latest price cut finally help it find a buyer?
