$14.5M Pricetag for Jewish Novelists' Brownstone by the Forward

$14.5M Pricetag for Jewish Novelists' Brownstone

Novelists Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss are listing their opulent century-old Brooklyn brownstone for a cool $14.5 million, the Daily News reported.

The Park Slope townhouse, located on Second Street right next to Prospect Park, was built in 1902 for the heirs to the Woolworth fortune.

It has six bedrooms, a backyard, a conservatory on the third floor with Tiffany stained glass windows, and its own dedicated parking space.

You may now melt into a puddle of jealousy.

Brownstoner reports the couple bought the plush single-family residence for $5.75 million in 2005.

Other big recent Brooklyn sales include the nine-bedroom former home of Jennifer Connelly and Paul bettany, which sold for $8.45 million in 2008, and Truman Capote’s old single-family home in Brooklyn Heights, which sold last year for $12 million, the Daily News said.
