Actress Michelle Williams and Hamilton director Tommy Kail scooped up a $10.8 million townhouse in Brooklyn Heights.

The deal for the 3,000-square-foot home may be one of the most expensive for the neighborhood, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The couple, who paid for the 1820s-era home through a trust connected to Kail also acquired a plot of land behind the house, according to the WSJ. The property was not on the market when it sold.

Other celebrities have been drawn to Brooklyn Heights of late. A year ago, actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt dropped $11 million on a pair of apartments at the Standish building.

This is not Williams’ first real estate purchase in the borough. In 2015 the actress paid $2.5 million for a mansion in Prospect Park. Williams sold a townhouse in Boerum Hill in 2014 for $8.8 million.
