Truman Capote's Heights House Asks a Cold-Blooded $18M

New, 36 comments

The walls that watched Truman Capote write "In Cold Blood," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," and other books can now be yours?for more than has ever been paid for a Brooklyn house. The 70 Willow Street property is hitting the market today with an ask of $18 million, according to the Daily News. (The borough record is a little under $12 million for a house in Gravesend.) Capote lived in the garden apartment of the 18-room, 11-fireplace mansion, which was previously available as a $40,000/month rental. We don't see a listing online yet, but a few photos were still floating around from the home's stint on the rental market. Any bets on the final sales price?

UPDATE: The listing is now online. Take a fuller look through the house in the gallery above.
