A single-family townhouse at 192 Columbia Heights in Brooklyn Heights has been sold for $11.75 million, a price that few other Brooklyn homes have surpassed.

The sellers are former Granite Broadcasting CEO W. Don Cornwell and his wife Saundra Cornwell. When they first listed their home for $16 million in 2014, they hoped to smash the borough’s current record price of $15.5 million for a townhouse set in 2015, according to The Real Deal.

The townhouse was built in the late 1950s and occupies about 7,900 square feet, The Real Deal said. It has seven bedrooms and has a view of Brooklyn Bridge Park and the waterfront.

The buyer was listed only as “192 Columbia Heights LLC,” The Real Deal reported.

Another townhouse that came close to the aforementioned record price of $15.5 million was Truman Capote’s former house at 72 Willow St., which sold for $12.5 million in 2012.

  1. The townhouse was built in the late 1950s? Perhaps you meant the late 1850s. It’s a beautiful house – the only drawback is that it is next to a house that has been abandoned for over 30 years
