Brooklyn Mansion Sells After Taking $20 Million Haircut



Southern Brooklyn is a nice place to walk because the streets are lined with mansions that are beautiful to look at while walking. While they all tend to look pretty different, offering unique characteristics that make them all even more interesting, one mansion with a far-out design stands out. This Mill Basin mansion on the waterfront just sold for $20 million less than advertised, and it was at one point the most expensive property available in all of Brooklyn.

After being on the market for about five years, the property sold for $10 million, according to records reviewed by the Real Deal.

The 14,000-square-foot property listed for $30 million bac in 2013, which was when it was the most expensive home available in all of Brooklyn. One caveat is that an adjacent mansion was included, but those properties are now split.

The owner of the home at 2458 National Drive, is Galina Anisimova, a Russian heiress. Anisimova acquired the home in 1996 at a price tag of $3 million, according to city records that were looked at by The Real Deal.

The purchaser is listed as an LLC, which falls under the control of Ryan Freedman of venture capital firm Corigin Ventures.

StreetEasy shows the price of the home declined a few times in recent years, the New York Post reports.

The four-story home has 10 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and plenty of crazy amenities not imaginable to most ordinary people.

The New York Post reviewed listing images and described them as showing “domed skylight and double-height floor-to-ceiling windows. There are also two kitchens, two master bedrooms — one of which has a separate den and meditation room — and a media room.”

The property boasts over 2,000 square feet of outdoor space, partly occupied by a 1,000-square-foot swimming pool, a pavilion, a kitchen and two boat slips.

The listing broker was Tatiana Nikichina of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
