While famed writer Truman Capote never struggled to attract attention, his one-time Brooklyn Heights home may be struggling to attract a buyer.
The 9,000-square-foot Brooklyn Heights home where the eccentric author lived from 1955 to 1965 hit the market for $18 million in May last year. But the townhouse at 70 Willow Street is still on the market and has just slashed its price down to $15.9 million, according to Streeteasy.com.
The 11-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom townhouse includes 11 fireplaces, two eat-in kitchens and an artist’s studio.
Capote is best known for his true crime masterpiece “In Cold Blood” and novel “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” which was later adapted for film, starring Audrey Hepburn.
Listing agents Karen Heyman and Alan Heyman, both of Sotheby’s International Realty, were not immediately available for comment.
