Mill Basin mansion at 2458 National Drive

Once the most expensive listing in Brooklyn with an asking price of $30 million in 2013, this taste of Miami on Jamaica Bay is trying one more time. The waterfront rapper-ready house is now asking $18 million, according to Curbed.

The 10-bedroom property is located at 2458 National Drive in Mill Basin in a gated compound. It comes with a storied past and more than 23,000 square feet of interior space. The main house was originally built and owned by John Rosatti, a multimillionaire with connections to the Colombo crime family. He then sold the property to Russian heiress Galina Anisimova (known as the mother of the “Russian Paris Hilton“) for $3 million in the late ’90s.

Outside, the mansion has a 1,000-square-foot pool, a 40-person pavilion and 30,000 square feet of outdoor gardens. The main house boasts a downstairs wine cellar, 257 feet of waterfront, a four-car garage, and a two-boat marina.
