Striking century-old Park Slope mansion lowers price tag to $9.85M

The rare townhouse failed to attract a buyer when it was asking $11 million

This Park Slope mansion may be the stuff dream homes are made of, but apparently its original $11 million price tag wasn’t. After almost a year of no action, the stately five-bedroom mansion at 104 Prospect Park West has switched brokerages (Brown Harris Stevens now holds the listing), gotten a bright set of new photos, and most importantly, lowered its asking price to $9.85 million.

The home was built around 1899, but nothing about the space is dated. In fact, this beauty underwent a three-year renovation helmed by MADE Architecture that introduced modern conveniences (a new plumbing systems, central air conditioning) into the home while preserving the high concentration of prewar details found throughout its six floors.

There are too many of those vintage elements to call out, but to name just a few: stately wood columns; wainscoting and wall moldings; inlaid wood floors; extravagant decorative mantels; and the original wood staircase. Areas with more contemporary designs include the five bathrooms and the massive kitchen that leads out the the huge garden.
