The home featured in the iconic 1987 film Moonstruck which starred Cher, Nicolas Cage, Vincent Gardenia, Olympia Dukakis, and Danny Aiello is currently for sale.

The asking price is a mere $12.8 million.

According to the website Brownstoner, the building, which sits on the corner of Cranberry and Willow Streets, was as much a character in the film as the multi-generational Castorini family.

An Instagram post shared by New York City real estate agent Robert Khederian revealed the exciting news and also provided some insight into the Brooklyn Heights townhouse's impressive features.

In the post seen below, Robert shared some of the home's most impressive features.

The home was originally built in 1829. Robert claimed it was renovated in the later 19th century to get that third story and Mansard roof. The corner property is coveted in the area because it also includes parking.

This house is located on one of the best streets in Brooklyn Heights, It has federal fireplaces and woodwork in the double parlor. The kitchen is beautiful, and there’s a large dressing room.

The Home Has Other Interesting Stories

Although the home is best known as being the home base for the Castorini clan, the residence has been the site of some other notable events as well.

Brownstoner reported that in the 1880s a scandal and drawn-out lawsuit over the house’s ownership began. Dr. Herman Richardt was accused of having “complete control and mastery” over the mind of the home's owner Catharine A. Valentine. 

This resulted in her handing over the deed to the doctor, according to her family. The property and subsequent guardianship of her son were also in question as she participated in what was then called an illicit relationship.

According to The Corcoran Group's listing, the building has been substantially restored. It is a four-story, five+ bedroom, three and a half bathroom, single-family townhouse in Brooklyn Heights' Historic District.

The home is just 26' wide, and it has both a garden and gated parking.

The home boasts 30 windows and a pizza oven in the completely redone, large kitchen. It has exposed wood beams in the ceiling of the light-colored room which boasts a stunning center island.

When the house last sold in 2008, it went for $3.85 million.
