Not yet two weeks into 2013, it’s already a banner year for Brooklyn Heights residential real estate. In the same week that filmmaker/writer David Schisgall & Vanity Fair writer wife Evgenia Peretz bought 16 Garden Place for $5.7 million, public records reveal that 264 Henry Street sold for $5.25 million, a mere 10% shaving off the asking price of $5,775,000.
Brownstoner reports that the home (which Property Shark estimates was built in 1901) is 25 feet wide, 50 feet deep and five stories tall, with two wood-burning fireplaces and a sun room. It was that website’s House of the Day in November.
Clay Lancaster’s Old Brooklyn Heights reported the current 246 Henry as showing up in city directories as far back as 1844.
