    I’m no expert on NY real estate but $25 million seems like a lot for Brooklyn. Granted if this were on the U.E.S. it’d be triple that amount but still…
    It does look like a very nice place. Just need a good interior designer and you’re set.

    Gorgeous architecture, but I have to agree with Daniel; $25 million seems a bit high, considering the need for a complete interior rehaul.

    It’s in a nice part of Brooklyn but it’s still $25 million, for Brooklyn. The remaining period details look great, but there’s a lot of work left to do, and money left to spend, to bring the place back to its former grandeur. I’m not sure it’ll be worth what will be invested in it after several million is spent refurbishing it.

    Definitely a trophy home, but I’d be down for it.

    I think Brooklyn is gonna catch up with Manhattan in the next 10 years, so this might be a great investment. The price still seems pretty high. Good bones but gonna need to be completely redone inside.

    This is a nice home but that’s a lot of money to pay to live in Brooklyn. But the quality is amazing. To the people that don’t seem to understand what I am talking about when I say the walls of a lot of the homes on this site looks cheap. Well look at the quality of the walls in this townhome and then compare it to how the walls look in the Orlando home posted just above this home and let me know if you can see a difference in the quality and craftmanship of the walls of this home in comparison to the Orlando home. This home is way superior.

      You’re right. Those wall look solid. They are architectural elements in
      themselves. Most walls nowadays are just drywall nailed over some wood. I would love to learn how those walls are constructed.

    More than twice the highest Brooklyn sale in 2005-2012. 212 Columbia Hts was the highest seller at $11M – there have only been a handful of $10M-ish sales.

    Discount it by half and I’d get Jerry Seinfeld over there to take a peek 😉

    Brooklyn is and has been for some time in a revival and brownstone/townhouse neighborhoods like this have supported very expensive homes and sales have been very brisk. $25 million may be a touch steep but consider the irreplaceable interiors and the size of the place and it also is stunningly beautiful. Would love to complete the restoration here and live in it. Architecturally historic and gorgeous.
