According to city records published today, Krauss purchased the six-bedroom, 7,670 s/f home for $3.03 million earlier this month, at a fraction of the original $14.5 million asking price. In June of last year, they reduced the listing price to $13

million. The couple first purchased the home in 2005 for $5.75 million.

The documents also list Safran Foer’s address as 374 Pacific Street – revealing him to be the mystery buyer of the brownstone in Boerum Hill that sold for $5.4 million

The authors listed their Park Slope townhouse for $14.5 million in October of 2013, just after the literary power couple announced their split after 10 years of marriage. The couple have two children together.

Safran Foer is the author of best-selling books Extremely Loud and Incredibly

Close, and Everything is Illuminated. Krauss is best known for her novels Man Walks Into a Room, The History of Love, and Great House.
