Comedian Chris Rock isn’t looking for laughs at his Brooklyn townhouse, which he’s put on the market for $3.85 million.

Rock purchased the carriage house at 239 Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill in 1994, but moved out after his 1996 marriage to Malaak Compton-Rock. (The couple split in 2015.) The townhouse has been rented out since the late 1990s, according to the New York Post, fetching $15,000 a month in recent years.

At 3,700 square feet, Rock is asking $1,040 per square foot.

Built in 1901, the three-story house has original wood beam ceilings, exposed brick and a patio. The house can accommodate two or three bedrooms, depending on how the space is configured. Douglas Elliman’s Ann Cutbill Lenane has the listing. [NYP]E.B. Solomont
