Amy Schumer reportedly bought Moonstruck Townhouse for $12.25 million
Amy Schumer is said to be the buyer of the Brooklyn townhouse that served as the backdrop for the characters Cher and Nicolas Cage in the 1987 film Dreameraccording to New York Post. The Federal-style structure built in 1829, located in historic Brooklyn Heights, was purchased through a trust for $12.25 million, or $1.25 million more than the asking price .
In May, the comedian and actress listed her luxurious Upper West Side pad and hinted at the the wall street journal that she and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, would move their family to Brooklyn to be closer to school for their three-year-old son. Schumer told the the wall street journal that his previous residence was his “dream apartment in Manhattan” and said that buying it was “a big deal for me. It looked like such a palace.
If the Life and Beth star is indeed the new owner of the Dreamer house, however, this is in no way a downgrade. Spanning four stories and 5,568 square feet, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom property, which includes gated parking and a private garden terrace, has been completely renovated to restore historic details, including full restoration from the Mansard roof, the hand-carved trim, moldings and marble fireplaces. Modern touches were also added during the renovations, such as an excavated gym and wine cellar in the basement and completely redone bathrooms with a mix of new and old fixtures. Thirty windows invite an abundance of natural light throughout the space.
Inside, the stunning eat-in kitchen features antique cabinetry, exposed beams, a wood-burning oven and a black eight-burner Lacanche range and three ovens with gold fixtures. Majestic black marble fireplace mantels are the focal points of the north and south lounges. On the garden level, there is a cozy library lined with built-in shelves and a wood-burning stove.
