Buy Vince Clarke’s Brooklyn house
Synthpop icon Vince Clarke, of Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure, is selling the gorgeous 3,600 square-foot 19th century Park Slope townhouse at 178 Garfield Place that he and his wife, Tracy Hurley Martin, have lived in since 2012. It can be yours for a cool $5.995 million. From the listing:
The generous double parlor floor opens onto a substantial chef’s kitchen with a breakfast nook. Spanning the second floor, your master suite is complete with a sitting room, luxury bath and private terrace overlooking the garden. The third floor houses three bedrooms and a full bath. The garden level is currently used as a recreation room with a second kitchen and two additional bedrooms, but could be a separate apartment with private entrance. Fully finished, the cellar can be used in a myriad of ways – a wine tasting room, game room or home theater. The fully landscaped and irrigated south facing garden has a mature dogwood tree and can be accessed from the garden level and parlor floor. Additional features include seven restored limestone mantels, three-zone central A/C, new mechanicals, electric and rear facade.
Vince’s wife Tracy was one of the owners of Brooklyn’s Morbid Anatomy Museum which closed in December. Photos of their home from the broker are in the gallery above.
