Best known as the fictional residence of mob boss Don Corrado in the 1985 film "Prizzi's Honor," this extravagant, 18,000-square-foot mansion in Brooklyn Heights is now on the market for $40 million—a record-breaking price for the borough.
Located at 3 Pierrepont Place, the luxe residence—comprised of 15 bedrooms and 16 baths—presently belongs to Jeff Keil, a retired banker and erstwhile president of Republic New York Corp., who bought the palatial home back in 1991 for just $2.3 million—a mere sliver of its present day asking.
Originally built in 1856 for businessman Abiel Abbott Low, the home—which touts a number of noteworthy details including its original fireplaces, high ceilings, and an impressive central staircase sweetened with a skylight—overlooks the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and New York Harbor. Still sporting an olde worlde interior, it was designed by architect Richard Upjohn, who can also lay claim to conceptualizing the Trinity Church on Wall Street and the St. Thomas Episcopal Church along Fifth Avenue.
Corcoran Group's Vicki Negron currently holds the listing.
