The single-family home was once owned by Brooklyn Law School
Back in 2014, Kushner Companies picked up three former Brooklyn Law School residences in Brooklyn Heights, with an eye toward turning them into single-family homes. The first two, located at 100 Pierrepont Street and 38 Monroe Place, were listed just a few months later. (Three more buildings were turned into market-rate rentals.)
Now the final single-family conversion, at 27 Monroe Place, is on the market with a whopping $18 million asking price. That puts it in the ranks of the most expensive homes for sale in Brooklyn right now, tied with another Heights mansion at 146 Willow Street.
And the house is a beaut: There are five bedrooms and more than eight bathrooms spread out over five stories (yes, there’s an elevator), along with a roof deck, first-floor patio, and fourth-floor terrace. The list of amenities is long, and includes the following: custom kitchen with marble-topped island, Savant smart home system, three fireplaces, a master suit with two dressing rooms and an office, a lower level with space for a wine cellar, a library, and we could keep going but you get the drift.
The home was designed by J.L. Ramirez Architects, who’s also behind the conversions of the other houses at 100 Pierrepont at 38 Monroe. Those are both in contract as of April, though final sales prices have yet to be revealed.
