Architect John J. Petit took his inspiration from many sources, and looked to other cultures for his inspiration for his Prospect Park South houses.
The Swiss chalet house at 100 Rugby Road in Prospect Park South sold earlier this month for $2,100,000, making it the second most expensive sale in the neighborhood as far as we know. The current record holder is the Carol H. Pratt-designed home at 147 Rugby Road, which went for $2,200,000 last September.
Blog 6sqft first broke the news that the seven bedroom, 3.5-bath house had sold. It first came on the market for $2,275,000 in January. Developer Dean Alvord, who purchased 60 acres to construct Prospect Park South, built the house in 1900, and architect John J. Petit designed it.
