Actors Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany have traded in their Manhattan co-op for a Brooklyn Heights townhouse with views of the Statue of Liberty.

The couple purchased the 8,000-square-foot Brooklyn townhome from Timothy and Stephanie Ingrassia for roughly $15.5 million, marking what’s said to be one the most expensive deals in the borough, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Timothy Ingrassia, the co-chairman of global mergers & acquisitions at Goldman Sachs, and his wife purchased the 25-foot wide home for $10.75 million in 2006.

Billy Hult, president of electronic-trading platform Tradeweb Markets, purchased Connelly and Bettany’s Tribeca penthouse for about $9 million, according to the WSJ. A trust controlled by the couple bought the apartment for $6.92 million in 2008, the report said.

The 4,096-square-foot unit, in a 1890s-era co-op building, overlooks the Hudson River.
