A 19th century mansion in Clinton Hill with ties to the Pfizer family is up for sale for $13.5 million, making it one of the most expensive homes in Brooklyn.

According to Curbed, the home was built by Charles Erhart, brother-in-law of Charles Pfizer and one of the founders of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. Over the years, it has served as a temporary office for the Brooklyn Public Library, a home for a Roman Catholic bishop, a Catholic girls’ school and a home for a rock star.

In 2007, Curbed said, interior designer Jessica Warren and her husband purchased the house for $4.2 million, then spent $5 million to restore it. The four-story mansion has seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half bathrooms, eight wood-burning fireplaces, front and back gardens and an Otis elevator.
