Apparently, 257 feet of waterfront, two boat slips, a 1,000-square-foot pool, a “circular meditation room,” and an outdoor pavilion/kitchen with seating for 40 was not enough to make this over-the-top Mill Basin mansion a hot seller. We’ll blame it on the Miami Vice-meets-Star Strek design. But for one daring buyer, this made for quite the deal, as The Real Deal reports that after five years on the market, the home at 2458 National Drive has sold for $10, a whopping $20 million less than its original asking price.
The listing thoughtfully refers to the home as a “California inspired oasis.” It measures an impressive 14,000 square feet over four stories and has lots to offer in the way of marble and mirrors.
The first floor, with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water, contains a double-height foyer, the kitchen, living room, dining room, and office.
Both the second and third floors have master suites. The second-story suite comes with two extra-large dressing rooms. There are also two additional bedrooms on this floor.
The third-story suite has a separate den with a domed skylight and a meditation area.
And on the lower level, you’ll find a six-car garage, media room, second kitchen, laundry room, staff room, and sauna. The outdoor space is an equally impressive 2,324 square feet and has the aforementioned pavilion and kitchen, swimming pool, and a spa.
The home doesn’t just stand out for its peculiar design: it was built by a Colombo crime family associate, was designed by Noel Jeffrey; and currently belongs to the family of “the Russian-American Paris Hilton.” Said owner Galina Anisimova bought the mansion in 1996 for $3 million. It was first listed in 2013 for $30 million (at which time it was Brooklyn’s most expensive listing), and then underwent subsequent price chops to $17 million, $12.5 million, back up to $18 million, and this past spring to $13 million. Interestingly, the buyer is an LLC tied to real estate developer Corigin Real Estate Group.
