Recently, 6sqft brought you a look at an extraordinary 23-room mansion at 1305 Albemarle road, freshly-listed at a neighborhood record-setting $2.98 million. According to the listing agents (h/t Curbed) this impossibly grand home entered contract two hours after it officially hit the market.
The head-turning house just happens to be on the same street in quiet Prospect Park South as the Colonial Revival-style mansion recently purchased by Michelle Williams; it was a key location in the Oscar-winning film “Reversal of Fortune,” and “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” did some filming on the home’s first floor. We don’t know if it was the fame factor, the 10,000-plus-square-foot size, the 30-foot Ionic columns at the entrance, or the unbelievably massive and dramatic third floor ballroom complete with wet bar, but we can see plenty of reasons this house would find a new owner in a flash.
Nest Seekers agents Rachel Simons and Ryan Serhant boasted in an Instagram post that the property, in need of restoration but still plenty of house for the price, sold two hours after listing. In addition to its ten bedrooms, this impressive home has six full baths, a two-car garage and decks galore, including one with a six-person hot tub. Here’s one more peek at this Brooklyn beauty.
The third floor is definitely a charm: That’s where you’ll find that palatial ballroom complete with columns and a gleaming dark wood floor, plus a wet bar and oval window. In the mid-1990s, the home’s owner would apparently rent out the ballroom for events in addition to hosting film and TV shoots in the entire home.
