If you’ve ever taken a taxi or stayed up a little too late with your TV running in the background, it’s likely that you’ve seen an episode of Talk Stoop, which features New York celebrities chatting about their latest projects on—you guessed it—a city stoop.
For several years, the stoop in question belonged to Cat Greenleaf, who created the show in 2009 and hosted it for close to a decade. Now, Greenleaf is selling the Boerum Hill townhouse that gave the series its name for $2.995 million.
The home, located at 12 Wyckoff Street, was constructed at the turn of the 20th century, and while the stoop is the most famous thing about it, there are plenty of other lovely decorative details—and some that are supremely quirky. How quirky? There’s an enormous chess set in the backyard; a Harry Potter-style cubbyhole cut beneath a staircase; chairs that are shaped like giant bunches of bananas; and more.
The house is split into two residences: The owner’s unit, which occupies the parlor floor and the level above that, has three bedrooms (one of which has an enormous walk-in closet), one and a half bathrooms, and access to a terrace and the backyard. On the ground floor, there’s a separate two-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, washer/dryer, and backyard access.
