Amy Schumer is in contract to buy the Brooklyn Heights townhouse featured in the 1987 movie Moonstruck. As first reported by the New York Post, the actress-comedian has toured multiple homes in the historic neighborhood and put an offer on the corner property at 19 Cranberry Street, which was most recently listed for $11,000,000 after first hitting the market last summer for $12,850,000.
The nearly 4,500-square-foot home was built in 1829 in the Federal style, but, according to Brownstoner, the Second Empire-style mansard roof was added later in the century.
Spread out across four stories, the home boasts two parlors, five-plus bedrooms, a cozy country kitchen, a library, a terracotta-tiled backyard, and even a private parking spot on Willow Street.
In late May, Schumer listed her Upper West Side penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive for $15,000,000. The palatial home is surrounded on all sides by planted terraces and centered around a glass-wrapped solarium living room, as 6sqft reported.
The move to Brooklyn doesn’t come as much of a surprise. In an article about selling her UWS abode, the comedian told the Wall Street Journal: “It’s pretty obvious where we are going. If you leave this borough, what borough do people usually move to? It’s not rocket science.”
