This one’s a bona fide mansion, or a former one anyway — a five-story Renaissance Revival house built in the late 19th century along “Sportsmen’s Row” on 8th Avenue in Park Slope. With ground-floor offices topped by four floor-through apartments it’s set up as an investment property, though how much former grandeur could be restored to, say, an owner’s triplex is an alluring question.
The photos show period detail in the entryway and staircase — wainscoting, banister and newel post, entrance doors. The remaining shots reveal little, though, beyond inlaid wood floors.
The listing, from Maria Vitagliano at Ideal Properties, offers little detail on the house’s condition, and makes no great claims for rich detail within.
This was a House of the Day back in 2013, when the asking price was $5 million; that listing credited the house design to Magnus Dahlander and dated it to 1892.
With four large apartments and commercial space (currently occupied by an orthodontist and an accounting office) in a prime spot near Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park, the house can certainly generate some income. The current asking price is $6.25 million — think it’ll fetch that sum?
