For a while, two of the penthouses atop One Brooklyn Bridge Park occupied top spots on this list, and this particular unit—#1216—was asking $32 million. Now, it’s asking significantly less: just under $18 million, though that’s pricey enough to make the 8,500-square-foot apartment the most expensive home for sale in Brooklyn right now.


2. 280 Washington Avenue

280 Washington Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11205


Clinton Hill’s massive Pfizer Mansion recently hit the market with a $13.5 million price tag. The enormous brownstone—it measures 25 feet wide, and spans 10,000 square feet—has seven bedrooms, seven wood-burning fireplaces, plenty of historical details (it dates back to 1887), and landscaped outdoor space. There’s also a vintage Otis elevator—so history nerds with money to burn, this may be the place for you.

3. 2458 National Drive

2458 National Dr
Brooklyn, NY 11234


Will anyone ever buy this extravagant Mill Basin mansion? The home, listed for $13 million, first hit the market in 2013 with a $30 million price tag; it was then pricechopped to $17 million; after briefly de-listing, it returned for $17 million(and came with an adjacent property); and then got discounted even further, to $12.5 million. Then, it reappeared last summer for $18 million, and was de-listed in January. Like a real estate zombie, it keeps rising from the ashes.


4. 17 Prospect Park West

17 Prospect Park West
Brooklyn, NY 11215


The limestone mansion at 17 Prospect Park West, once the priciest home ever sold in Park Slope, has returned to the market. The seven-bedroom mansion dates back to 1899 and was designed by architect Montrose W. Morris. Even though it was renovated by a previous owner, a significant amount of its original details—stained glass windows, mahogany columns, coffered ceilings, and the like—have been preserved, giving the whole place a grand, stately feel.


5. 94 Amity Street

The cost: a whopping $12.5 million. (Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes have the listing.) According to prospective floor plans, the home would have 8,400 square feet of interior space, with an additional 2,400 of outdoor space, including a backyard with outdoor kitchen and a roof deck. It would also come with a private two-car parking space.

7. 1 Main Street, #14

Brooklyn, NY 11201


It’s no clocktower penthouse, but this apartment at Dumbo’s 1 Main Street will still be plenty impressive once it’s finished—the listing notes that it’s currently in pre-construction mode.

This utterly charming Brooklyn Heights home with a storied past—and a link to Truman Capote—hit the market last year, though it’s gotten a discount from its original $10.5 million price tag. It’s an especially wide house for Brooklyn Heights: the south-facing facade measures 50 feet, and there’s an attached garage as well. It spans around 4,000 square feet, with a whopping seven bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, several original fireplaces, and a lovely little outdoor area.
