The home of famed author Truman Capote in the Brooklyn Heights section of New York City has finally been sold. The sale of the Brooklyn home came after the asking price was dropped by more than $6 million. Capote's home, built in 1839, was on the market for more than a year.
This 9,000-square-foot Brooklyn Heights home has a number of stunning interior features, including a three-story elliptical mahogany staircase.
The residence at 70 Willow Street was first listed in May 2011 with an $18 million asking price. The spacious property has 11 bedrooms, 11 fireplaces and views from the west, south and east. There is also a 2,500-square-foot garden and a massive wine cellar.
Truman Capote is well known for his writings that include the classics "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "In Cold Blood."
