For Sale: 'Eat, Pray, Love' Carriage House in Brooklyn
The Brooklyn carriage house featured in the 2010 movie "Eat, Pray, Love" is back on the market for $6.995 million, down $1 million from its original asking price. Author Elizabeth Gilbert's home in Frenchtown, N.J., had a "skybrary" upstairs. The home of her fictional character, played by Julia Roberts in the movie adaptation of the best-selling memoir, instead features a sky-greenhouse off the upstairs bedroom.
The historic turn-of-the-century home (seen in a slideshow below) was first a firehouse, and it's huge, for a historic home in the area, with 2,125 square feet on the main floor alone. Exposed beams run across the ceilings, and the wood floor is made of 12-foot-wide planks. The living room has a large brick fireplace.
The home is currently split into two units but could be used as a single residence.
The carriage house has a uniquely convenient Cobble Hill location. Deborah Rieders of The Corcoran Group holds the listing.
