John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Say Goodbye to Their Brooklyn Home
The famous couple and their daughters Hazel, 3, and Violet, 14 months, are parting ways with their picturesque Brooklyn townhouse after less than two years, a real estate source tells PEOPLE. The historic home, which they purchased for $6 million in 2016, according to Variety, and completely restored, was listed with Corcoran for $8 million in September, and has now sold for under asking at $6.56 million, according to the NY Post.
Out of the Dark
The A Quiet Place actor-director, 38, and soon-to-be Mary Poppins star, 35, transformed the 1909 house from dark and traditional to a bright and colorful space perfect for their young family in Brooklyn’s kid-friendly Park Slope neighborhood.
By the Numbers
The four-story, 20-room townhouse includes 7 bedrooms and 3.5 baths spread across 5,200 square feet. The French Renaissance Revival limestone facade matches it’s neigbhors on a leafy street right next to Prospect Park.
An Old-Fashioned Format
A series of formal parlors lead from the street back through a formal dining room that boasts a fireplace and paneled walls, which looked completely different before the family’s makeover.
The redesigned kitchen has walls of glass that open to the backyard and a skylight spanning a huge island. Motorized shades can be lowered for privacy from the neighbors.
The outdoor space (a rarity in New York City real estate) is paved in blue stone and accessible from the basement-level playroom.
The second floor is dedicated to a sprawling master suite, comprised of two of the home’s original seven bedrooms. Though, when they bought the place, two of the four rooms on the top floor of the four-story house were tiny quarters, only 5 and 6 feet wide.
The master bathroom features original stained glass panels that the couple had carefully restored.
Mom and Dad's Den
Past a walk-through closet, is the suite’s private sitting area which features a gas fireplace and access to the second-floor terrace.
The garden level, which also includes a guest suite that can be accessed via separate entrance on the street, features a play area that was no doubt a plus for the couple’s young family.
