A Park Slope townhouse asking $14 million could set a record neighborhood sale price — that is, if a nearby townhouse with a $15 million price tag doesn’t snatch the record first.

While the Tracy Mansion in Park Slope remains poised to set the sales record if it sells for its $15 million asking price — slashed from $25 million just last year — this home would unseat the reigning record holder at 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, once owned by Truman Capote, which sold for $12.5 million last year.

The glittery details include seven bedrooms and five baths, two marble powder rooms, five skylights, two staircases and the home’s original Otis elevator, which has been refurbished and restored.

Venetian plaster, stained glass and hand-painted murals with gold leaf detail pays homage to the original architect’s design.
