Nestled on a picturesque, tree-lined street in Boerum Hill – a relaxed village in the northwestern portion of Brooklyn, New York – rests an incredibly chic, Greek Revival brownstone that is a book lover’s dream, and it could be yours to the tune of $8.995 million.

“This is one of the single largest homes that exist in Boerum Hill, with nearly 8,000 square feet of interior space,” says listing agent Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers International. “The light-filled house spreads 6,473 square feet across five floors, with an additional 1,040 square feet in the full-height cellar.”

The gut-renovated, 26-foot-wide home is owned by Jonathan Safran Foer, New York Times bestselling author of two award-winning novels, Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, plus a bestselling work of nonfiction, Eating Animals.
