It’s been four years since this stunning duplex at 104 Pierrepont Street popped up on the market with a $3.85 million asking price that was pretty hefty for Brooklyn Heights at the time. Fast forward to the present, the 3,000-square-foot co-op is back with an even bigger price tag but nothing new to show for it.
It’s no less opulent that it was the previous few times that it has attempted to sell, only the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom “mansion duplex’ wants $4.2 million this time around. The parlor floor is adorned with details that include 14-foot ceilings, intricate molding, a decorative fireplace (one of three), a hand-painted ceiling mural, and much, much more. Its 20th century grandeur is accompanied by a modern kitchen and spa-like bathrooms, but there’s not much else that explains the price hike. At one point, the duplex ambitiously wanted as much as $4.825 million but that didn’t work out so well.
There’s no doubt that this space is impressive (just look at the library for Pete’s sake). According to the listing, the home’s basement has been made exclusively available to whomever buys the apartment. The private landscaped garden sweetens the deal even further. Whether or not this justifies the $4.2 million ask is entirely up to you to decide.
