After being on the market for over two years, Brooklyn’s priciest townhouse–a $40 million home at 3 Pierrepont Place–is now being offered as four rental units. 6sqft previously featured the home, known as the Low Mansion for the previous owner and businessman A.A. Low, whose son, Seth Low, became mayor of New York City in 1902. Spanning 17,500 square feet, the eight-figure townhouse boasted 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and more than 9,000 square feet of garden and outdoor space with original details galore. Though even Matt Damon toured the grand Brooklyn Heights property back in September, the house hasn’t found a buyer, so the owner is now offering the mansion as four luxurious rental homes from a $4,500 one-bedroom to a 1,700-square-foot top-floor unit for $12,000 a month (h/t Curbed).


The four new apartments may be somewhat of a step up for the stately home, as it was previously divided into eight apartments with short-term lease agreements in place. In addition to the aforementioned one-bedroom which has a fireplace and central air, you can rent a $5,500-a-month promenade-facing unit with river and city views and a garden-level two-bedroom for $6,500 a month.


And, of course, that top-floor home with two fireplaces, a master bedroom with en-suite bath and three exposures. The communal roof deck was a pre-existing bonus that makes all four apartments that much better.


Built in 1856-57, the home still retains its wealth of carved wood moldings and cabinetry and entryway rotunda.
