The last time the Miami-meets-Mill Basin mansion at 2458 National Drive hit the market, we wondered: Will anyone ever buy this extravagant home? And after five years, the answer is apparently yes: According to The Real Deal, the over-the-top Brooklyn home finally sold for just $10 million.
That’s quite a discount from when the home first hit the market back in 2013 with a $30 million price tag. In the five years since then, it’s been on a pricing roller-coaster: It was discounted to $17 million, then $12.5 million; then, it reappeared for $18 million, and most recently re-listed this spring for $13 million.
There’s also a colorful history here: The house was built by a Colombo crime family associate, and was designed by Noel Jeffrey. The current owners are the family of the so-called ”Russian American Paris Hilton.” But the buyer appears to be a real estate developer: Public records indicate that the LLC that purchased the home is linked to Corigin Real Estate Group, which develops apartment buildings and has been involved in projects like Tribeca’s Sugar Lofts and Robert A.M. Stern’s 20 East End Avenue.
The 14,000-square-foot home has four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a six-car garage. And as a reminder, it features—from least to most extravagant—a sauna, two boat slips, “architectural gardens,” a pool larger than most apartments (1,000 square feet), “a gatehouse to inform you of guests’ arrival in entranceway,” an “extraordinarily designed meditation room,” and an outdoor pavilion with seating for 40.
