How many megamansion can you find in Brooklyn Heights? More than a dozen for sure, including the 7,750-square-foot townhouse at 146 Willow Street. It is one of the most desired and lavish single-family townhouses available in the neighborhood.

Previously the house was split into seven rental units. Back in 2016, developer Shahrzad Khayami of AscentSeven purchased the landmarked property in 2014 for $6.8 million. It took about two years, and an undisclosed amount, to restore the house from top to bottom.

The five-story home was built in 1920. The Neo-Grec mansion’s major renovation was guided by the vision of the renowned architectural firm Baxt Ingui. The townhouse was restored to its original use as a single family residence while simultaneously creating a home for the modern user. 

It has seven bedrooms, with a zen/meditation room in the master suite. The house has an elevator that goes all the way to the rooftop with a cellar that holds a wine room. What about the floors? Radiant heated floors are integrated into each bathroom.
