Back in March, it was national news that Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick were purchasing a pair of townhouses in south Brooklyn Heights on State Street near Sidney Place, which would total 7,000sf when combined. It was reported then that the celebrity couple was selling their West Village townhouse because they “wanted something more private, laid-back and discreet.” In mid-September, that property on East 10th Street was listed for $25 million.
But Brownstoner now reports that the State Street deal fell through, and Parker & Broderick—with their son James Wilkie and twin daughters Marion and Tabitha—have purchased a new-build townhouse in Brooklyn Heights for more than $4 million. Brownstoner coyly offers, “We know the address, and the building was recently taken off the market, but we don’t want to say more.” This, however, refutes other media outlets that are sticking by the State Street purchase.
