Bjork, the Icelandic singer known for her eclectic repertoire, has put her Brooklyn Heights penthouse up for sale. The asking price? A cool $9 million. The building is a pre-war co-op, and the 3,000-square-foot penthouse, which is separated into day spaces and night spaces, according to Variety, has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a wraparound terrace, a greenhouse structure opening off the dining room and a service wing. The rooftop offers 360-degree views of Brooklyn and the lower Manhattan skyline.

Variety, however, calls the unit’s price tag “very aspirational,” citing its “perfectly ordinary” tiling, “not particularly ample” guest bedrooms, and not “especially big” bathrooms.

Bjork and her then-partner, artist Matthew Barney, purchased the penthouse in 2009 for $4 million.
