Truman Capote's Brooklyn Heights Home At 70 Willow St Reduced By $2.1M (PHOTOS)

The house that Truman Capote lived in while writing "Breakfast At Tiffanys" and "A House on the Heights" went on the market last year for $18 million.

But The Real Deal now reports that the bright yellow townhouse on 70 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights has been reduced to $15.9 million.

Among the more amazing attributes of this five-story, double-width townhouse is a large backyard and porch, 12-foot ceilings, east, south and west exposures, and "parlor floor Jeffersonian floor-to-ceiling pocket windows and French doors leading to the Federal style columned veranda." It has 18 rooms, 11 fireplaces, and housed one of the 20th centuries greatest writers. Capote lived at 70 Willow Street during the 1950's and 60's, and you can sieze the place today if you've got $15.9 million stashed somewhere safe.
