While ParkerÃ¢â¬â¢s Sex and the City star Carrie Bradshaw would never have moved to Brooklyn, the couple have chosen Brooklyn Heights as it is a popular area for families. The pair plan to buy two adjacent townhouses and have them knocked into one single 7,000 square foot family home.
The couple are also selling two New York properties to fund the purchase. The couple own a property on East 10th Street which they bought two years ago as a renovation project but have never lived in. ParkerÃ¢â¬â¢s Manhattan apartment at 64 Perry Street is also on the market. It boasts ten rooms and six fireplaces and is available for a cool $9.65 million.
