212 Columbia Heights Sells for $11 Million, Sets Record


    The sale of 212 Columbia Heights was recorded in city records this morning, setting a record as the most expensive house to ever sell in Brooklyn Heights. The 4,950-square-foot, seven-bedroom townhouse sold for $11 million. As Curbed noted a few weeks ago, it went into contract very quickly after being put on the market for $13.5 million late last year. Its sellers picked it up for $4.25 $8.5 million in 2006 (NYT article here), according to PropertyShark. The property beats out 88 Remsen Street, which traded for $10.8 million, as the most expensive to ever sell in the Heights. It comes close to being the priciest sale in Brooklyn ever, too: As far as we know, it ties the sale of a Gravesend house for $11 million in 2003 for that honor.
