Owned by one of Brooklyn’s foremost real estate entrepreneurs who used this as his town home, this estate is filled with all of the luxurious toys that are a standard must have for any New York City or international business mogul. The mansion was built to house twelve but has only been occupied by three so everything is in mint, renovated condition.

This 5000+ square foot two-family multi-structure estate packs a lot of useful space into an enormous footprint. This masterfully renovated property has a total of 20 rooms, 5 bedrooms and 6½ bathrooms - with two separate furnished rental units of 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom each, with their own separate entrances.
The residence sits on 78th between Ridge Blvd and 3rd Ave, two blocks from the 77th Street stop on the R Train in beautiful Bay Ridge Brooklyn. The lot includes a long driveway capable of holding more than five cars. The main section of the home contains the central kitchen, living rooms, bedrooms, home office and bathrooms, while a second “mother’s suite” has its own living and bath areas. The office is fully wired and equipped, has a half bathroom, a vaulted ceiling space designed for a library and includes a separate area for business meetings.

Amenities include a game room (billiards, ping pong, fuse ball, flat screens), a movie theatre (fitted with custom fabrics and a high definition sound system), an outdoor heated pool (with an integrated flat screen television), an outdoor kitchen set up with high-end appliances and an outdoor grill. The game room also has a secret passage leading to the guest house, which also doubles as a wine cellar, while the guest house may be used as a second rental unit.

No expense has been spared in this massive gut renovation which maintains the historic integrity of a classic Brooklyn style, while adding modern and high-tech details. The building style is quintessential Old Italian architecture, while the interior and overall infrastructure are filled with new avant-garde design. For example, the main living room has a spectacular set of floating stairs that leads to the 2nd floor office and the front porch has been fitted with a custom heated and air-conditioned doghouse. This ultra modern residence is simply one of a kind and is priced as such. The entire complex is available furnished or unfurnished.
