Brooklyn could have a new contender for most expensive home, thanks to a $12 million townhouse that just hit the market.

The previous record for the borough was an $11 million Brooklyn Heights brownstone, which sold in in 2012.

The newly listed townhouse is also in Brooklyn Heights (via Curbed).

Located on Willow Street, the 1800s-era home has been renovated with a modern kitchen and appliances, but its listing at Brown Harris Stevens says it retains its original French doors and wood-burning fireplaces.

It has six bedrooms and four and half baths, with the entire top floor of the mansion dedicated to  a master suite with cathedral ceilings and exposed wood beams.

This is 104 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. It was built in 1826, and is asking for $12 million.
