88 Remsen Breaks Price Record

Brownstoner reports on the reason real estate broker Kevin Carberry might be smiling today, he just sold 88 Remsen for a record breaking price:

Brownstoner: Brooklyn Heights Mansion…: Talk about a trophy property. 88 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights, sold for $10,800,000, nosing out 140 Columbia Heights—which went for $10.75M in ’06—as the most expensive house sale ever reported in Brooklyn Heights, and one of the priciest residential properties ever to change hands in the borough. (There have been other Heights sales in this megabucks ballpark: 82 Remsen, for example, sold for $10.5 million in 2006.) The mansion at 88 Remsen went into contract early this year.

    What recession?! Nice to hear at least our real estate investments are secure!!!

  • Batty Magoo

    Whatever. The cheapo living there before didn’t even put in central AC…

    Now that’s a “climatist” statement if I ever hear one!

  • nabeguy

    I can’t imagine how the original dwellers of this building managed to exist without central air! Oh my, the deprivation!

    Happy days are here again….

    Our blessed nabe: 10 mill for a residential building but not a decent (well, better than decent) restaurant in sight…..

    …and a string of vacant stores on Henry near Cranberry….

    Having been one of the renters who once lived on their garden level, I can attest to the fact that we got along without central air conditioning just fine, thank you.

    We were really happy during our time there. I hope the new owners treat it well.

    I don’t know what the big deal is. I think they got ripped off. The house looks like every other brownstone.
