Is It Too Much To Ask $6.95 Million For This Hicks Street Townhouse In Brooklyn Heights?

Curbed ponders the $6.95 million dollar price tag for 273 Hicks Street:

Curbed: At 23′-wide and five stories tall, the house is huge and gorgeous. There are floor-to-ceiling windows, original mantels, and high ceilings, plus a really lovely garden and patio. It’s asking a pretty steep $6.95 million.

Not for nothin’ but we’re all “rising tide raises all ships” on this one. How about you? Too pricey or just right?

    Too noisy on hicks!

    I’m no real estate assessor, but the property itself is certainly quite darn nice. Can’t speak to the inside, of course, but they did a really nice job with the ‘grounds’ around.

    Hicks as a rule isn’t so bad (much better than Clinton for example) but this house is by the intersection at Joralemon so cars will be stopped at the light, and it’s close to the fire station.

    The firehouse isn’t an issue. Most days the truck doesn’t go out at all. When it does (sometimes for food), it doesn’t use its siren in the vicinity of the firehouse.

    at 23′ frontage (and probably 50+ feet deep?), and at 5 floors, that’s somewhere north of 5,500 sq… which comes out around $1,250/sf – sounds about right… I’d love to have floor to ceiling windows with that kind of floor space

    it’s nice work if you can get it!

    Jesus, when you see the way people decorate their manses sometimes you want to weep:

    Since the city repaved Hicks I’ve noticed a lot of cars treating it as their personal speedway, doing probably 40 or 50 mph at times. That would get my nerves living there. It is a nice street otherwise.

    I live across from the firehouse. The 224 is in and out of the firehouse all day and all night. However, they are great neighbors who never turn their sirens on until they hit the first intersection (where 273 Hicks is located).

    True. Hopefully when the nabe becomes a slow zone, this will change as well.

    I’ve lived on Hicks between State and Joralemon as well as 133 Henry (near Clark) and the Archway at 180 Montague. 180 Montague was by far the loudest. Hicks street is only a little louder than Henry. It really only gets loud when BQE is backed up and some impatient, rude people take Hicks as an alternate and lean on their horns.
