Was it proximity to Dr. Paul Weston's couch that led a buyer to pay over the asking price for In Treatment star Gabriel Byrne's Brooklyn Heights townhouse? We'll never know, but the deal, which went into contract in April and happened in June, officially hit public record yesterday. The house at 14 Garden Place, which was originally asking $4.7 million when it went on the market at the end of October 2009, sold for $5,242,027. The buyer is an LLC that takes us to an apartment at 641 Fifth Avenue owned by Christie's Inc.. Which makes us wonder if the new owner of Byrne's place is a Christie's bigwig moving from Manhattan. Meanwhile, Byrne's heading to Manhattan, with a new apartment at 211 Elizabeth Street and a nice chunk of extra change from that townhouse sale.
