Here’s some tea! New York Times food editor Sam Sifton and his wife, Christina Fallon, have sold their Red Hook prewar condo in Brooklyn for $875,000. Fallon, of Realty Collective, was also the broker.
The second floor unit is at 156 Conover St. At 850 square feet, it features one bedroom converted into two bedrooms with 10-foot ceilings and one bathroom. Fun features include a private, walled garden — all by the waterfront.
Of course, there’s a chef’s kitchen with a built in cabinet, and a 25-foot-wide bedroom area divided by a storage wall. The fab couple love Red Hook so much that they traded up, but stayed close.
Why’d the couple sell? Well, they are the new owners of a $2 million home at 172 Coffey St. The charming three-bedroom, three-bathroom, single-family townhouse dates to the 19th century. At 2,700 square feet, the red-brick property is more than triple the size of their starter pad.
Just think about all the meals to be made in that kitchen! The home features original pine plank floors. It also comes with its own private backyard.
Note to Sifton from Gimme Shelter: please keep up the good work. Your recipes and writing helped keep us all sane during lockdown.
