Brooklyn’s priciest freestanding home hits market for $14M

A 9,200-square-foot single-family Brooklyn home at 2134 Ocean Parkway has come on the market today, making it the largest freestanding residence currently for sale in the borough. The property, which has been owned by the same family since 1992, has an asking price of $14 million, $4 million more than Brooklyn’s second most expensive independent residence, a renovated townhouse at 36 Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights, which is asking $10 million.

It is also the second most expensive listing of all residential properties for sale in the borough, according to data from Streeteasy.com, just behind Dumbo’s famed Clock Tower penthouse at 1 Main Street, on the market for $19 million.

“It’s like a palace in the middle of Brooklyn,” said co-listing broker Ryan Serhant, a senior vice president at NestSeekers. “Nothing here really trades [often].”

The Mediterranean-style five-bedroom home, which is at the border of Gravesend and Sheepshead Bay, is “touched with limestone accents and finished in two-tone stucco and an authentic green terracotta style Spanish roof,” according to the listing. It features a multi-level art-nouveau staircase accented by artisan wrought iron panels, two kitchens, a master bedroom with a French-doored balcony, a game room, 4.5 bathrooms and an elevator serving all floors.

“It’s all custom,” Serhant said of the listing, which he shares with colleagues Nick Jabbour, Alex Dietrich and Melvin Caro, all vice presidents at NestSeekers. “Everything is imported, from the marble to the chandeliers. Some of the furniture is more expensive than the house itself.”

Jabbour said the apartment could be delivered furnished or unfurnished, depending on the preference of the buyer.

Serhant said the lack of recent sales in the area made it difficult to put the hefty asking price in context.

The sellers are listing the property because their family has grown up and moved out, Serhant said. Public records identify the current owners as Ely and Rivka Levy. The Levys were not immediately available for comment. The price of that transaction was not available in records.
