Known for her eclectic musical style and her eccentric costumes, Björk lists her pre-war co-op in Brooklyn Heights.

Located in a landmark building in Brooklyn Heights' historic district, Björk’s four-bedroom, four-bath penthouse features interiors that are slightly more low-key than one might expect from the infamous Icelandic chanteuse—but then again, it would be impossible to compete with the home's spectacular views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.

The 3,000-square-foot unit has a layout that is divided into public and private space. The south side contains a bright and spacious kitchen, a dining room leading out to a small greenhouse, gallery space, the living room, laundry, office, and one full bathroom, while the north side houses the four bedrooms plus three full baths. However, the home's highlight is undeniably a wraparound terrace with plenty of room for outdoor entertaining and stargazing. Now, the infamous Icelandic star has listed her property for $9,000,000.
