The House from “Moonstruck” Is Currently For Sale
Snap out of it! The beautiful Brooklyn Heights home that served as the Castorini abode in the 1987 rom-com “Moonstruck”, starring Cher and Nicholas Cage, just hit the market. It’s utterly gorgeous with five bedrooms and three baths, and you don’t need la bella luna to fall in love with it.
The townhouse at 19 Cranberry Street is on the market for $12.8 million. After scrolling through the home, listed by Karen and Kyle Talbott of The Corcoran Group, the awe-inducing price makes a bit more sense.
This single-family property comes with a gated garage and garden area, and it’s been expertly modernized while retaining its 1829 charm. According to the listing, renovations that have been completed in the last 10 years include a completely restored Mansard roof, new brownstone, restored ironwork, and historic reproduction windows.
Inside, the previous owners installed new infrastructural systems including hidden steel beams and steel corseted stairs. They also restored the original crown molding, hand-carved and milled trimwork, and the original marble fireplaces.
On the basement floor, there is a second laundry area, excavated gym, and wine cellar. And on the three upper floors, the previous owners restored each room with period-appropriate finishings, such as antique cabinetry sourced from a mansion in Ohio which were re-engineered with German soft-close hardware, the listing states.
Needless to say, this property is leaving people both awestruck and moonstruck.
