Actor Daniel Craig is the latest of the Hollywood brigade to land in Brooklyn, according to the New York Post. The 21st century James Bond and wife Rachel Weisz have reportedly scooped up the Cobble Hill townhouse at 22 Strong Place formerly owned by author Martin Amis. The home was damaged in a fire in 2016; Amis and wife Isabel Fonseca, who’ve moved to a Downtown Brooklyn apartment, offered the property complete with intact (despite the blaze) recent renovations and landmarks-approved plans for repairs as per the listing.
According to records the 100-plus-year-old Cobble Hill home was purchased via an LLC called On the Rows last year. Craig and Weisz previously lived in a $11.5 million Soho penthouse which they purchased in 2012. The couple join Michelle Williams, Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, John Krasinksi and Emily Blunt, Norah Jones and Lake Bell to name just a few recent boldfaced BK names.
Amis and Fonseca bought the home for $2.5 million in 2010. A faulty chimney caused a fire on the roof last year; the listing for the 6,600-square-foot property offers it as a “blank slate…ready for a purchaser to finish to their specifications. This home has just received a brand new roof and extensive repair after damage from a fire that was contained to the top floor and is ready for a contractor to begin the finishing work . . . Wall studs are intact, and most mechanical systems are in good working order (including radiant heat in two of the bathrooms and the garden level).”
