Actors Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, who owned a limestone mansion in Park Slope for several years, are reportedly the purchasers of a $15.5 million Brooklyn Heights townhouse.


The Wall Street Journal identifies the couple as the buyers of a house sold by Timothy Ingrassia, the co-chairman of global mergers and acquisitions at Goldman Sachs, and his wife, Stephanie Ingrassia.

The property is a landmarked 1840s Greek Revival-style townhouse with a late 19th-century mansard roof.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

The deed, which appeared in online city Finance Department records on Tuesday, confirms that the sale price was $15.5 million.

The trust that was used to purchase the Brooklyn Heights townhouse is the same one through which Connelly and Bettany bought and sold their Park Slope house, Finance Department records indicate.

They purchased the landmarked Park Slope property for $3.7 million in 2003 and sold it for $8.45 million in 2008, Finance Department records show.

Now, in addition to buying the Brooklyn Heights home, Connelly and Bettany have just sold a Tribeca co-op, the Journal reported.

The Ingrassias Bought a Pierhouse Condo Last Year

The $15.5 million Brooklyn Heights purchase ties the record home sale price for our borough. The other house that sold for the same sum was 177 Pacific St. in Cobble Hill.

Photographer Jay Maisel made that $15.5 million purchase in 2015.

Connelly and Bettany’s Brooklyn Heights purchase tops the 2017 sale price for the DUMBO Clock Tower penthouse condo at 1 Main St., which was $15 million. A Colombian-born gallery owner and art dealer named Lio Malca was the buyer of the high-profile triplex apartment.

But more about Connelly and Bettany’s newly acquired Brooklyn Heights house. The Ingrassias had purchased it for $10.75 million in 2006, Finance Department records indicate.

The Ingrassias were in the news last year for a condo purchase they made at Pierhouse, the controversial development in Brooklyn Bridge Park. They paid $10,669,579 for their apartment, Finance Department records indicate.

To date, it’s the highest-priced condo sale to close at Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital Group’s Furman Street residential and hotel development.
