Celebrity couple Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany put their limestone townhouse on the market for $8.5 million.
Take a look!
According to Sotheby’s International Realty, their Brooklyn, New York home has 9 bedrooms and 3.5 baths: “Here is an opportunity to own one of the all time great houses of New York built at the turn of the century. Located on a corner lot directly across from Prospect Park, sunlight fills the grandly proportioned rooms all day long through oversized windows.”
They’re reportedly moving to a more contemporary place in TriBeCa with views of the Hudson.
The listing says:
Located on a corner lot directly across from Prospect Park, sunlight fills the grandly proportioned rooms all day long through oversized windows.
All of the original wood carving surrounding the windows and mantels as well as the elaborate plaster work on the ceilings remains in tact and in perfect condition.
There are fireplaces in all of the public rooms (living, dining and kitchen) as well as in 3 of the 4 master bedrooms.
There is a full servant’s quarters on the top floor consisting of 4 small bedrooms, a full bath and a large storage room.
The original stained and leaded windows exist in the baths and in the large skylight at the top of the grand staircase.
Central air-conditioning has been added and there is a large, fully landscaped garden at the rear of the house which is gated and private.
This property is simply outstanding in every way.
