The NY Times reports that the asking price for author Karla Kuskin’s home at 96 Joralemon Street has been reduced $200K to $3.4 million. Kuskin died last year in Seattle where she had been living for several years.
New York Times: The mid-19th-century house has 4,630 square feet over five stories. It has been divided into three spaces. The top three floors are a five-bedroom triplex with a deck, which was occupied by Ms. Kuskin and her family. The parlor floor is configured as a two-bedroom rental apartment, and the garden level is being used as a doctor’s office.
Ms. Kuskin’s longtime home was first put on the market for $3.6 million. The listing agents, Kim Soule and Lucy Perry of the Corcoran Group, lowered the price this month.
“I know charm is a word that’s overused, but it really is a charming house,” Ms. Perry said, adding that she had read Ms. Kuskin’s book “James and the Rain” to her three children. “And it feels like it’s filled with memories.”
