Funny gal Amy Schumer is said to be simply moonstruck with a certain cinematic Brooklyn Heights townhome.
The star is in contract to buy the iconic property featured in the Oscar-winning movie “Moonstruck,” according to the New York Post. Last on the market for $11 million, the home is listed in “contingent” status.
The news comes after the award-winning actress and her husband, Chris Fischer, placed their Upper West Side penthouse on the market for $15 million earlier this spring. The two reportedly had decided they wanted to live closer to their toddler son’s school.
The swanky five-bedroom Manhattan apartment offers 4,500 square feet of indoor living space with an additional 3,000 square feet of bilevel outdoor space.
That’s real estate amore
There’s so much to love: The new digs feature an expanded, 5,568 square feet of living space across four stories.
And it’s hallowed ground for movie buffs. The 19th-century abode served as a much more humble backdrop for the 1987 movie, featuring a young Cher and Nicolas Cage.
While the five-bedroom, four-bathroom property has been renovated since then, much of the home’s 1829 history remains. The grand-scale townhouse now offers high ceilings, restored crown molding, hand-carved and milled trim, and millwork.
Original details include marble fireplace mantels, steel-corseted stairs, built-ins for extra storage, exposed wood beams, and wide-plank floors.
Modernizations include a second laundry area in the basement, along with an excavated gym and wine cellar. The mansard roof has been restored, and the brownstone exterior is new.
And the dreamy, garden-level kitchen is the perfect place to make a big pizza pie! The cook area offers a professional wood-burning oven, Lacanche French range, Gaggenau refrigeration and freezer columns, and dishwashers.
The butler’s pantry comes with a zinc bar sink, and the antique cabinetry was sourced from a mansion in Ohio and reengineered with German soft-close hardware, the listing notes.
Out back, the lush gardens surround a brick patio for extra privacy.
Located in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the European-inspired corner brownstone is just a short walk to restaurants and a new deep-water marina.
The property’s listing agent is Karen E. Talbott with Corcoran Group.
