Documentary film directory Errol Morris, whose film “The Thin Blue Line” freed an innocent man accused of murder, is listing his Brooklyn Heights co-op.

Morris and his wife, poet Julia Sheehan, bought the three-bedroom apartment at 22 Pierrepont Street in 2014, and are now listing the place for $1.95 million, according to Curbed. The listing price is close to the original purchase price.

It features a wood-burning fireplace with an original mantle, stained-glass transom windows and a private garden.

The listing claims that the apartment was “once owned by an important artist.” That could either be Morris or Nobel Prize-winner and former Poet Laureate Joseph Brodsky, who once called the apartment home. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
