Michelle Williams Sold Her Lovely Brooklyn Home For Over Ask

New, 11 comments


Michelle Williams, who moved to LA earlier this year to pursue acting roles, has successfully sold the Brooklyn home she and the late Heath Ledger bought together in 2005 (h/t 6sqft). When the gorgeous, ivy-covered six-bedroom house at the corner of Hoyt and Dean streets first listed in September for $7.5 million, commenters thought it was "overpriced," with an ask better suited to Brooklyn Heights than Boerum Hill, but clearly a buyer—shielded by a cryptic LLC—was wooed by the "insanely beautiful" and "absolutely stunning" property. Because it went for a whopping $8.8 million, or 17 percent over ask.

One reader shared this fun tidbit:

A little history: The house had been previously owned—and significantly fixed up—by Nell Campbell, the Australian actress who was Little Nell in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and who owned the nightclub Nell's. King's County pioneers that they were, she and Ledger picked up the home for $3.6 million, according to public records.
