Who’s ready for a renovated/reverted 7,800-square-foot Brooklyn Heights mansion? 146 Willow Street totally is!
The 25-foot-wide landmarked property set judgey tongues a-wagging when it went on the market in late 2011 with an asking price of $6.8 million. Located between Clark and Pierrepont streets, the four-story (plus cellar) building had been divided into several apartments per floor.
Said Brownstoner: “Just because you’ve got top-notch size and location doesn’t mean you can get away with asking any price you like… A gut renovation is required to turn it back into a one- or two-family. In addition to requiring a few million bucks, this also suggests that the original architectural details are already compromised.”
Turns out, the building sold in February for $6.8 million, according to public records. It just took two years and some change.
The new owner filed permits yesterday to merge the 45-foot-tall building’s 11 units into a single-family abode and possibly install an elevator, according to this Schedule A breakdown. The architect of record is Baxt Ingui Architect PC.
The property was to be delivered vacant with demolition permits in place, according to the original listing.
