‘The Breakfast Club’ host Angela Yee just bought herself a $2.8 million landmarked Brooklyn brownstone
It was a pandemic buy, Yee told The Post. “I’m always working and traveling, but during the pandemic I finally had the time to look for a home.”
The late-19th-century, 21-foot-wide home is on MacDonough Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. It was originally asking $3.2 million last June.
At 4,000 square feet, the brownstone features seven bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms.
Original details include floor-to-ceiling windows, 12-foot ceilings on the parlor floor, six marble fireplaces, lattice bordered hardwood floors and the original staircase and pocket doors.
There’s also a 27-foot front yard and a 40-foot backyard filled with a custom pergola, blue stone pavers and irrigated landscaping.
This is Yee’s third real estate purchase in Brooklyn in seven years — all with the help of Brooklyn broker Sara Golan of Nest Seekers. The listing brokers were Ken Hurley and Kevin Keating of Industrie Residential.
The first purchase was a two-family Bed-Stuy brownstone where she lives on the top two floors and rents out the rest.
She then bought an investment condo in Williamsburg at the Austin Nichols House for $800,000 that she rents.
Yee, 44, told Gimme that she is on a mission to encourage more women to buy real estate on their own.
“I would say, don’t wait to invest in a home,” Yee said. “There is nothing more empowering than owning real estate.”
She also plans to add a full extension to her new brownstone before she moves in.
At the same time, she is also expanding her professional career and launching a new celebrity interview streaming show, “Established with Angela Yee” on Fox Soul.
