The Moonstruck house, where Cher and Nic Cage once ate oatmeal, may finally be off the market. The New York Post reports that the four-story Brooklyn Heights townhouse — listed for $12.85 million in February of last year and relisted at $11 million that fall — found a buyer in Amy Schumer. The deal hasn’t closed yet, but it’s probably time to accept that you won’t live there.
The five-bedroom, three-bath townhouse at 19 Cranberry Street was once owned by architect Edwards Rullman, who fought for the historic preservation of Brooklyn Heights so celebrities like Schumer, Michelle Williams, and John Krasinski could eventually live there. The home has been extensively renovated over the years and looks a little different than it did in Moonstruck, but many of the details are familiar: the entryway staircase, the eat-in kitchen, the fireplace with the original marble mantles. Let’s just hope that once Schumer moves in she realizes there are three kinds of pipe — and that copper pipes cost money because they save money.
