The Swiss chalet house at 100 Rugby Road in Prospect Park South sold earlier this month for $2,100,000, making it the second most expensive sale in the neighborhood as far as we know. The current record holder is the Carol H. Pratt-designed home at 147 Rugby Road, which went for $2,200,000 last September.

Blog 6sqft first broke the news that the seven bedroom, 3.5-bath house had sold. It first came on the market for $2,275,000 in January. Developer Dean Alvord, who purchased 60 acres to construct Prospect Park South, built the house in 1900, and architect John J. Petit designed it.

  • Finally, something for $2 million that is actually worth $2 million.
    I would like to know what the original sales price was for one of these grand Flatbush houses vs. original sales price for a comparable, 1900’s brownstone.
    If you want a laugh, check out the book “Flatbush of Today” from 1908, which rails against Brooklyn’s “rows of dull, brown-stone attached houses built out onto the sidewalk.” and describes Flatbush as a superior alternative.

  • Well, so much for my $1.6-1.7m prediction…
