The width of this Park Slope limestone and red brick house — 30.5 feet — is unusual, and so is the price. A cool $14,000,000 will get you a “true mansion,” in the words of the listing, with a round center staircase, a round dining room, a lavish kitchen with its own living room and breakfast room on the ground floor, a butler’s pantry, servant’s quarters, an office suite with a gym, bathrooms with marble and patterned tile, an original Otis elevator, and on and on. There are two La Cornue stoves, a Blue Star stove, and three Meile dishwashers. The 1890s house was designed by C.P.H. Gilbert and Babb, Cook & Willard, and sits half a block from Prospect Park. It last sold for $6,050,000 in 2006 to a Gregory Bell, according to PropertyShark — possibly the actor, according to the Observer. Do you think it’s worth more than twice that now?
