SELLER: Michelle Williams
LOCATION: Brooklyn, N.Y.
SIZE: (approx.) 3,600 square feet, 6-8 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: In late September, the children will recall, rare book collecting actress Michelle Williams hoisted her renovated and photogenic townhouse in Brooklyn’s coveted Boerum Hill ‘hood at $7.5 million and, as many of our celebrity real estate compadres have already discussed, the three-time Oscar nominee quickly sold in the final days of 2014 to a mysterious corporate entity for $8.8 million.
It does not take a mathematics savant to recognize that Miz Williams’ pretty pad, which property records show was last acquired in 2005 for $3.6 million, was in such high demand with high-end Brooklyn buyers that it commanded an almost unheard of $1.3 million more than the asking price.
Just to recap, the 22-foot wide corner townhouse has six to eight bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms over four floors that encompass about 3,600 square feet of renovated space. Specific features of note include a built-in DJ station with dual turntables and surround sound in the 1,000-square-foot open plan main living space, a climate-controlled walk-in wine cellar in the basement and a nearly 600-square-foot private terrace atop an exceedingly rare and desirable semi-detached three-car garage.
