We can’t make heads or tails of the floor plan of this grand circa-1900 mansion, which was divided into eight “Class A” units in 1948, according to the listing, but has no certificate of occupancy. Designed by architect Thomas Bennett, the house includes what must be the fanciest dining room we’ve ever seen, complete with original painted landscape scenes, coffered ceiling, paneling, a huge and elaborate fireplace and stained glass.
Not every detail is intact: Some of the floors have been replaced with tile, for example. It’s one block from Prospect Park and also has an elevator.
It’s 20 by 82 feet, for a total of 6,136 square feet, according to PropertyShark. The listing claims it would be easy to convert back into a single family.
What do you think of it and the ask of $11,800,000?
