COBBLE HILL TOWNHOUSE SELLS FOR A WHOPPING $15.5 MILLION
A four-story Cobble Hill townhouse is awarded the title “most expensive house to be sold in Brooklyn.” The 10,000 square-foot, four story, six bedroom home at 177 Pacific Street listed in October of 2013 at $16 million, recently sold for a whopping $15.5 million.
The luxury property features an iconic 20-seat movie theater, a personal gym, an elevator, four parking spots, four working fireplaces, and a 2,600-square-foot rooftop garden.
“This was an extremely unique property,” stated Alex Maroni, a broker from Douglas Elliman, told the Daily News. “The combination of location, size and finish was unprecedented. If this townhouse had been in Manhattan, it would probably have gone for closer to $40 million. It’s very hard to find a property of this size and scale in prime Brooklyn.”
The former most expensive record was held by the home once lived in by Truman Capote, at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. That home sold for $12.5 million back in 2012, just $3 million short of this surprising purchase.
