Jennifer Connelly, Paul Bettany snag Brooklyn Heights townhouse

The sale is said to be one of the priciest ever in the borough

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.
