An Ocean Parkway home made headlines yesterday when it hit the market for $14 million – giving it the heftiest price tag for a single-family home in all of Brooklyn.
At 2134 Ocean Parkway, this five bedroom, 9,200-square-foot home boasts an elevator, two kitchens, a master bedroom with balcony and French doors, art-nouveau staircase, and is “touched with limestone accents and finished in two-tone stucco and an authentic green terracotta style Spanish roof,” according to the listing.
A family has owned the home since 1992 and decided to put it on the market – furnished or unfurnished – since their children have grown up and moved out, according to The Real Deal.
The property’s agent, Ryan Serhant, told the New York Daily News that picking a price was a difficult task, with few known comparables in the area’s Syrian Sephardic community.
“This area trades mostly within its own community which brought the prices to where they are,” Serhant said.
The Gravesend area and its Sephardic community have been nabbing top slots for residential real estate pricetags for several years now. In 2009, 2111 East 2nd Street sold for $10.26 million, spurring Brownstoner to scoff, “Holy moly! … It’s definitely the biggest sale of this year, and probably one of the top 10 or so biggest house sales in the borough ever.” A home around the corner at 450 Avenue S sold in 2011 for $10.25 million, just shy of the $11 million sale of 451 Avenue S across the street in 2005.
