Not. For. Sale.

For now, anyway.

We’re talking about 146 Willow St., the Brooklyn Heights multi-family building that’s being converted to a single-family home — which was for sale for an $18 million asking price.

The house, located on a prime block within the landmarked Brooklyn Heights Historic District, got lots of media attention when it went up for sale last April.

When the redevelopment is finished, 146 Willow St. will have an elevator, a wine room, a roof garden — and a master-bedroom suite with a meditation room.

The other day, we noticed workers had started building a historically appropriate stoop outside the  front door of 146 Willow St., and realized we hadn’t checked its marketing website lately to see if the house was in contract yet.

The website, we discovered, had been taken down. So we asked the developer what’s up.

“I decided to pull the townhouse off the market until the construction is more advanced,” Shahrzad Khayami told the Brooklyn Eagle via email.

“I plan to put it back on the market by the end of September/early October once we are further towards the end and the finishes are almost complete.”

When 146 Willow St. goes up for sale once again, the asking price will be $18 million, she said.

As the Eagle previously reported, Khayami purchased the property for $6.8 million through an LLC in 2014, city Finance Department records indicate.

According to city Buildings Department filings, there had been 11 apartments in it before the redevelopment project began.
