October 31, 2013 04:16PM

A Park Slope townhouse, purchased by “Everything Is Illuminated” novelist Jonathan Safran Foer and “History of Love” author Nicole Krauss for just over $5 million in 2005, is back on the market with a $14.5 million ask.

The six-bedroom pad at 646 2nd Street, built for heirs to the Woolworth fortune in 1902, stretches across 7,670 square feet and set a record with the $5.75 million price it fetched eight years ago. Unique features include a third floor atrium, full garden and off-street parking behind a wrought-iron gate.
