Literary power couple Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss have put their Park Slope limestone on the market for $14,500,000, as The New York Daily News was the first to report. Built in 1901 by the Woolworth family, the 7,670-square-foot house sits on a double lot that goes all the way through to the next block. It also has a conservatory with Tiffany stained glass.
We were thinking the decor looks more frou frou than we would have expected from the couple, but then realized photos of the parlor (with gold light fixtures and a bronze statue) run by The New York Daily News are actually from the previous sellers. Sotheby’s, which has the listing, shows only the garden and the conservatory. The couple paid $5,750,000 for the house in 2005.
Do you think they’ll get ask?
