A ridiculously lavish Brooklyn townhouse just sold for an equally lavish sum. According to a representative with Halstead, the firm that held the listing, the newly-constructed home at 181 President Street in Carroll Gardens sold last week for $9.15 million.
That number beats out the neighborhood's previous $6 million sales record for both townhouses and condos.
The 35-foot-wide home, spans 5,356 square feet, was designed by Workshop DA and has a brick and walnut facade.
There are tons of distinctive design touches throughout the interior, like gray stone floors, a stone hearth, wide-plank oak flooring laid in herringbone pattern, and custom millwork that includes decorative walnut shelving along the central staircase. An elevator connects all four floors, and there are large windows and a central skylight.
A glass wall on the first floor of the home opens directly to a sprawling back patio. The outdoor space is outfitted with a kitchenette, grilling station and a pergola with shaded built-in seating.
Other perks include a temperature-controlled wine room and media room on the lower level; a roof deck lined with bluestone tiles and custom ipe fencing; and a multi-car garage, complete with a Tesla charging station.
The property sold as a commercial unit back in 2013 for $1.4 million, and a modest structure was replaced with this swanky home. It was listed with the Aguayo Team for Halstead roughly five months ago, according to Streeteasy. It sold eight percent below the original ask of $9.95 million.
