A Romanesque Revival-style Park Slope townhouse designed by Charles Pierrepont Henry Gilbert is set to hit the market for $15 million, or around $1,800 a square foot, making it the priciest home in the neighborhood.

The property at 838 Carroll Street will be one of the five most expensive homes on the market in Brooklyn, and if sells for full ask, would be the second-priciest single-family property ever sold in the borough.

Spanning 8,200 square feet, the 32-foot-wide ashlar-faced brownstone is known as the Remington House and was built in 1887. It has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms and features a curved tower bay and a wide, sweeping front stairway in front.

“It feels like a real mansion,” said listing broker Fredrik Eklund, who is marketing the property along with Raymond Dillulio and Lisa Interdonato of the Eklund-Gomes team from Douglas Elliman. “If This Were On Park AvenueOr Fifth Avenue, imagine what it would cost.”

The sellers, Jeanne and Joseph Accetta, paid $3.8 million for the property in 2014, and gave it a gut renovation. They previously renovated another famous Brooklyn property, a formerly bubblegum pink brownstone on Garfield Place. They sold that property for $4.25 million in 2014 after covering up the garish paint job, records show.

Park Slope’s median townhouse price was $2.73 million in the third quarter of 2015, a year-over-year increase of 71 percent, according to Corcoran Group data.

The current record-holder for Brooklyn’s priciest home sale is 177 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill, which traded in 2015 for $15.5 million, or $1,550 a foot.
