It looks like Miami, but its soul is pure Brooklyn. In 2013, this “bonkers” estate was the most expensive home in Brooklyn, on sale for $30 million.

But just the following year, it got a price chop down to $17 million. Last year, it shed both a neighboring home and another $4.5 million from its price tag, and it listed for $12.5 million.

Now it’s back, and this time it has an $18 million price tag and an adjoining guest home included.

The 10-bedroom Mill Basin property is a gated waterfront compound with a storied past and more than 23,000 square feet of interior space.

The main house was originally built and owned by John Rosatti, a multimillionaire with connections to the Colombo crime family. He then sold the property to Russian heiress Galina Anisimova (known as the mother of the “Russian Paris Hilton“) for $3 million in the late 1990s.

Outside, the mansion has a 1,000-square-foot pool, a 40-person pavilion for parties, and 30,000 square feet of outdoor gardens. The main house boasts a downstairs wine cellar, 257 feet of waterfront, a four-car garage, and a two-boat marina. Taken together, this is more akin in style to something you’d see in Miami than in Brooklyn.

Douglas Elliman has the listing.

Mill Basin is pretty deep in Brooklyn — about an hour’s car ride (or longer on public transportation) from midtown Manhattan.
