The single-family home conversion trend continues in Brooklyn Heights, with another former rental building being listed as a mansion for $18 million.

The roughly 7,750-square-foot building at 146 Willow Street used to be a rental building with seven units, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Shahrzad Khayami of AscentSeven paid $6.8 million for the building in 2014 and then spent two years renovating it, according to the newspaper.

Khayami told the Journal she restored the building’s facade, and rebuilt the interior, which has five floors and an elevator. The building features seven bedrooms, A Roof Terrace complete with a wet bar, a wine room in the cellar, and a master suite with two walk-in closets and a meditation room, according to the newspaper.

Town Residential’s Terry Naini has the listing.

Last week, Benchmark Real Estate Group said it planned to market a 20-unit rental building in Brooklyn Heights as a single-family home, selling it for $22 million.

Thus far, the priciest home to sell in Brooklyn was a four-story, 10,000-square-foot Cobble Hill townhouse at 177 Pacific Street, which sold for $15.5 million in June. In December, The Real Deal broke down the brownstone and townhouse market in Brooklyn. [WSJ]Dusica Sue Malesevic
