Anya Airapetian, the daughter of wealthy Moscow-based journalist, publisher and oil tycoon Levon Airapetian, is unloading a prized piece of her real estate portfolio. After picking up a historic Brooklyn Heights carriage house for $9.8 million last year, Airapetian is letting it go again for almost the same price.

The four-bedroom townhouse at 165 Columbia Heights is back on the market asking $9.9 million, according to Streeteasy. In 2014, the New York Post reported that she bought a West Village townhouse for $9.89 million at 280 West Fourth Street that was once home to artist Charles Webster Hawthorne, mentor to Norman Rockwell. However, that property seems to have since sold for $12.5 million to an unidentified buyer.

The Brooklyn carriage house is on the market with Compass’ Maggie Sherman, who says in the listing that the property has all new mechanical systems and every structural piece has been replaced.

It also boasts a three-car garage, three baths and a planted roof terrace.

Airapetian, whose father was arrested by Russian officials in 2014, bought the house from George and Anita Driscoll Feiger. The Feigers paid the the Jehovah’s Witnesses $4.1 million in 2012 for the property.
