Park Slope Eyesore Fixed and For Sale


    A crumbling building that bedeviled neighbors and the city for years has been transformed by one of the cleanest renovations we have ever seen. Long-time owner Peter Santini sold the boarded-up residence for $975,000 in 2010 to an LLC, presumably a developer, who renovated inside and out, leaving in the historic details such as the white marble fireplaces, and adding lots of new white marble in the kitchens and baths. We’re amazed to see it looking so fine. It’s been on the market since early October — in fact, it was an Open House pick. It’s now asking $3,990,000. Curious what you think about the renovation.
