A Brooklyn townhouse at 27 Monroe Place developed by Kushner Companies — where presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner was CEO until he resigned in January — has sold for $12.9 million, Gimme Shelter has learned.
That makes it the second most expensive home to sell in the borough this year, according to city property records.
The Brooklyn Heights home — which sparked the interest of Matt Damon’s wife Luciana Barroso, who did not end up buying it — was originally asking $16 million.
In 2014, Kushner Companies bought the townhouse for $7.41 million from Brooklyn Law School.
Built in 1844, the five-story home is 25 feet wide and 7,000 square feet (total). It comes with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three powder rooms — along with an elevator, radiant-heated floors and a chef’s kitchen with a dumbwaiter to the parlor floor butler’s pantry.
The listing brokers were Leslie Marshall and James Cornell of the Corcoran Group.
Brooklyn’s priciest sale of the year (and the most expensive apartment ever sold in the borough) occurred at 1 Main St. in Dumbo in March. Its Clock Tower triplex penthouse finally sold for $15 million to Colombian art dealer Lio Malca.
