Truman Capote's A House on the Heights in Brooklyn Heights Is For Sale

On the Market: Truman Capote's House on the Heights

The historic Greek Revival townhouse in Brooklyn Heights where Truman Capote penned Breakfast at Tiffany's has been put on the market for $18 million, the first time in 70 years. The 11-bedroom, 7.5-bath, five-story home was built in 1939, and features a three-story elliptical mahogany staircase with a rosette oculus window at the top. It boasts 12-foot ceilings, interior period details, a 40-foot columned Charleston porch in the rear, a garden, a parlor with floor-to-ceiling Jeffersonian pocket windows and French doors, a Federal-style columned veranda, 11 fireplaces, a private gated driveway, an artist's studio, and a wine cellar.In other words, it's a fantastic historic home that pretty much can't be beat! Better yet, it's only a few blocks away from the Brooklyn Bridge, just a few minutes from Manhattan. But if you're anything like Capote, you won't mind living in the outer borough: in A House on the Heights, which Capote wrote about his life living at this address, he famously scribed, "I live in Brooklyn. By choice. Those ignorant of its allures are entitled to wonder why." Tour the rest of the photos of this fabulous domicile and you'll have your bags packed.
