The historic Park Slope townhouse at 857 Carroll Street hasn’t spent a long time off the market. In February of last year, the developer Matthew Blesso settled in after buying it for $4.05 million. (We called his move a “total architectural 180,” considering his previous pad was this green Noho penthouse he sold for $7.35 million.) Now he’s put the Brooklyn property back on the market for a higher price than he bought it for, $4.695 million, with some upgrades to boot.
857 Carroll Street
Developer Matthew Blesso is doing a total architectural 180. Blesso, who used to call this uber-sleek Noho penthouse home, has just closed on a far more cozy historic construction in the heart of Park Slope according to city records filed today. No official listing could be found for the three-story pre-war home, but previous reports show that it was last being rented out by its former owner William Lawrence for about $11,000 a month. The neighborhood and the townhouse are certainly quite a change for Blesso, whose last home was about as modern and metropolitan as they get.
