Crown Heights Mansions Keep Coming: 1142 Dean Street

We've been saving this one for BK to the Fullest "Platinum Members" only, but it's too juicy not to share. This is simply one of the best places that $999K can buy in Brooklyn. 1142 Dean Street is a huge 5-story, 2-Family in Crown Heights, just past Bedford Avenue. Kitchens and bedrooms galore spill out of this 20' x 50' (with extension!) 4,000+ sqft mansion:

It could be a cash-cow rental if you ran it as a hipster frat house. In fact, the pool table's already in place:

Ginormous mansion that costs $6,000/month & makes $8,000/month... what more are you waiting for?

Pro's: curb appeal, huge, all kinds of space, original details, crazy rental income potential, multiple outdoor arrangements, extension

Con's: set up like a hostel or housing co-op, smorgasbord of space might not be for everyone

Ideally: get in and get this place! Wouldn't be surprised to see it go above asking price.


  1. I'm pretty sure this place is already under contract...

  2. The area is rat infested around Grant square, and I mean large rats! As well, the building next door on the right is a drug haven.

  3. Contract fell through, Looking at new offers
