Here’s an extraordinary property, a freestanding Greek Revival mansion on a double lot with parking for four cars in Cobble Hill. It was House of the Day in 2010, when it was asking $7 million. It didn’t sell, and now it’s back on the market for the same price. It was also Building of the Day in January. The exterior was restored by architectural firm Baxt Ingui; click through to Building of the Day to see the shocking “before” photo. On the inside, you will find a well-maintained owner’s triplex with art studio space and two rentals with a separate entrance. The rooms appear well-proportioned and light-filled, as you would expect in a 35-foot-by-50-foot freestanding house. Do you think this time they will get their ask?
