Actress Michelle Williams and her fiancé, theater and film director Tommy Kail (he directed the Broadway hit “Hamilton”), have just purchased a townhouse in historic Brooklyn Heights, the Wall Street Journal reports. The $10.8 million the pair reportedly paid for the 3,000-square-foot house, built in the 1820s, makes it one of the neighborhood’s most expensive sales.
The neighborhood’s pretty streets are lined with preserved and renovated brownstones that are known for breaking price records and attracting celebrities, including Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Matt Damon, Björk and Jennifer Connelly. Just down the street is Truman Capote’s former home on Willow Street.
In addition to the 3,000-square-foot home, the buyer, which is a trust associated with Kail, also acquired a parcel of land in the back of the house. The property wasn’t on the market at the time the sale was recorded.
Williams is no stranger to Brooklyn townhouses. Her most recent buy was a Colonial Revival-style mansion in Prospect Park South. Before that, the “Brokeback Mountain” star sold her beautifully renovated townhouse in Boerum Hill for $8.8 million in 2014.
