Record Sale in BK Heights

The New York Daily News is reporting there may be a buyer for a very expensive townhouse in Brooklyn Heights. I read about the townhouse a few weeks back and was amazed by the description. It's a Corcoran listing (suprise!) for a cool $12.9 million dollars (reduced from $20 million - apparently no one was biting):

"Breathtaking Sunset River, Manhattan Harbor, and Skyline Views! This exceptional 25' mansion is for the discerning buyer who either: loves Brooklyn Heights or cannot find a home they love in Manhattan, and someone who appreciates the finest design and renovation! Hop across the bridge to Brooklyn Heights to see this truly exquisite historic renovation on the Promenade! This elegant home has views to the Statue of Liberty and the downtown city skyline from every one of the five floors. It includes an elegant English garden, plus 2-3 other terraces on the river. A formal parlor floor has an astounding living room with floor-to-ceiling windows leading to a custom-designed wrought-iron terrace and one of the finest formal dining rooms."

I think it would be really cool to live on Pineapple street. I just love that area. The firm also has another listing in The Heights on Remsen street for $12 million, and another on Montague Heights. It's amazing how much the price of real estate is in Brooklyn. My mom grew up in a brownstone in Park Slope on President street two blocks from the park. If only they hadn't sold it to move to Long Island ;-)

My wife and I almost bought a townhouse on President Street at 5th Ave in Park Slope a few years back (a poorly maintained one that would've been a gut renovation). It's a beautiful area, but I'm even more glad I bought in Dumbo instead.
