We could say this Beaux-Arts Neo-Classical limestone mansion is Brooklyn’s priciest house for sale at $25 million, but it was recently used as a school and is being marketed by Halstead as a potential commercial property. It is also for rent for $65,000 a month. But it could be a single-family house. It was built in 1912 by the Tracy family, who were in the shipping business, and was also used by the Knights of Columbus as a meeting house, according to the listing. The interiors appear to be in fairly good original condition, with a Tudor-style dining room, an Arts and Crafts library, and an 18th-century-style sitting room. Halstead says it has undeveloped air rights and could be developed as apartments or used as offices, a cultural center, or a school. It is not landmarked, according to PropertyShark. Update: Good news! The property is landmarked, according to Halstead. They are working to get PropertyShark to fix the error.
