“Come away with me,” sang Norah Jones a decade ago. At some point, presumably, she came back. Now she’s making her home in Brooklyn, in a house made famous in the film “Eat, Pray, Love.”

The pianist and singer, daughter of Indian sitar legend Ravi Shankar, is the mystery buyer behind the $6 million purchase of 172 Pacific Street in Cobble Hill last May.The townhouse, built as a fire station in the 1840s, features a glassed-in greenhouse, the New York Daily News reported. Jones also owns a townhouse in the same neighborhood, at 166 Amity St., which she bought in 2009 for $4.9 million. She also sold a pad in Astor place in 2013 for $6.7 million.
