Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk is putting her sprawling 3,000-square-foot penthouse in Brooklyn Heights up for sale, Variety reported. Asking $9 million, the four-bedroom apartment at 160 Henry Street spans the full top floor. The private wraparound terrace, with Manhattan and Statue of Liberty views, may be the highlight of the pre-war home. Or it could be the bedroom with the hot-pink walls and ceiling.
The penthouse is divided into day and night spaces, according to the listing. The kitchen, dining room (with an adjacent greenhouse), gallery, and living room all sit on the south side of the house.
The north side contains the four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Behind the kitchen, there is a service wing that has a bathroom, home office, and a laundry room.
Björk first purchased the home in 2009 with her former partner, artist Matthew Barney, for $4 million. After their break up, the singer bought Barney’s share in 2015 for $1.6 million.
