Try not to let the exterior fool you; Susan Sarandon's third and most recent real estate purchase in the last seven months does not mean she has lost her mind in a buying binge. The rather hideous front of 334 Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill conceals a considerably nicer interior?2,500 square feet with 2BR/2BA, 12 foot ceilings, and seven skylights if you want some sun but don't want to head up to the roof deck; and let's not forget the 2 car garage on the ground floor. The home also has a celebrity pedigree. The seller was artist and poet Danny Simmons?older brother to music mogul Russell Simmons and Joseph Simmons (Run of Run-DMC). Sarandon paid $900,000 for her Clinton Hill getaway. In June last year, she bought a West Village penthouse for $1.75 million and purchased their Chelsea duplex from her ex- Tim Robbins for $3.2 million. As for the exterior on Grand Avenue? Maybe this is how ping-pong playing hipsters roll in Brooklyn. It's not an ugly building; it's aesthetically ironic.
