A mansion at 45 Montgomery Place in Park Slope set a record for the neighborhood when it sold for $10,775,000 last month. It previously sold for $6,050,000 in 2006 and was asking $14,000,000 in 2013.
It is one of several houses in Park Slope asking more than $10,000,000 in the last two years, but the first to sell above that figure.
The 1890s house was designed by C.P.H. Gilbert and Babb, Cook & Willard, and sits half a block from Prospect Park, as we noted when it was a House of the Day in 2013. It has a dramatic round center staircase, a round dining room, butler’s pantry, servant’s quarters, an office suite with a gym, bathrooms with marble and patterned tile, an original Otis elevator, two La Cornue stoves as well as a Blue Star stove, and three Meile dishwashers.
The one-family house has 7,660 square feet and is 30.5 feet wide by 65 feet long. It sits on a lot that measures 30.5 feet by 87.92 feet.
It is the third most expensive townhouse sale in Brooklyn. In Brooklyn Heights, 70 Willow Street sold for $12,500,000 and 212 Columbia Street sold for $11,000,000, both in 2012.
Other pricey Park Slope mansions still looking for buyers include the former home of Jennifer Connelly at 17 Prospect Park West, asking $14,000,000; 105 8th Avenue, asking $13,000,000, down from $25,000,000; and the Foer-Krauss house at 646 2nd Street, now asking $13,000,000, down from $14,500,000.
Curbed was the first to write about the sale, which hit public records yesterday.
