One of Brooklyn’s most distinguished mansions — the landmarked 10-bedroom Colonial Revival at 1305 Albemarle Road in Prospect Park South — entered contract Friday, eight days after the listing went up on the 21st of July.
The property’s agent, Million Dollar Listing star Ryan Serhant, triumphantly declared on Instagram, “we sold it in about two hours after listing,” even though the sale does not appear to have closed yet.
The home, last listed for $2.988 million, is “one of the most noticed and photographed houses in Prospect Park South,” according to Brownstoner’s own Suzanne Spellen, as she wrote in a previous Building of the Day post regarding the address. Some of the building’s most notable features are indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a wine cellar, multiple patios, a two-car garage, six bathrooms, a billiard room, front and rear balconies, a backyard underground sprinkler system, and a grand ballroom. Actress Michelle Williams lives across the street in her own 18-room mansion.
The prospective buyers appear to have their work cut out for them: While the interior’s historic details appear to be in fabulous shape, the mechanicals and the exterior will probably need quite a bit of work, which could mean millions of additional dollars on top of the hefty sale price.
