A stunning 19th century Park Slope mansion, that’s been on the market for nearly two years now, is finally in contract, Curbed has learned. The massive 32-foot-wide mansion first came on the market in March 2016 for an astonishing $15 million, making it one of the most expensive homes for sale in Brooklyn at the time.

However, no interested buyers immediately came forward to scoop up this corner mansion. In the months that followed, the brownstone went through several price cuts; in September 2016 it was first reduced to $12.75 million, in February 2017 that became $10.75 million, and by July the price on the house had gone down to $9.995 million.

Still, no buyer emerged. In December last year, the house took yet another cut, reducing its ask by $1 million to $8.995 million. That finally seemed to do the trick, and this Romanesque Revival home designed by CPH Gilbert is finally in contract. The 8,200-square-foot townhouse features 13 wood-burning fireplaces, eight bedrooms, and six bathrooms, among other features.
