Dodgers — is scheduled for release this week, and this stately mansion offers
the opportunity for you to have your own historic Brooklyn experience.

Known as the Tracy Mansion, this 50-foot-wide limestone mansion is one of the most architecturally significant homes to come up for public sale in Brooklyn in decades. Designed by the legendary architect Frank J. Helmle, the property has had only three owners since it was built in 1912. The Park Slope home consists of three stories plus a garden level, and features a flexible floor plan that offers many possibilities for customization by the new owner.
Many of the grand home's original details have been carefully maintained or meticulously restored, so you can enjoy rare words, a grand sweeping staircase, a huge Italian marble fireplace and a marble entry hall with bronze doors.
A great bonus: the home also has undeveloped air rights — meaning there's the opportunity for additional expansion, which could include the development of office space or even a transition to an educational or cultural facility.
The home's buyer seems motivated to sell — the price has
been cut by several million since the home went on the market last year.
