John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are one of my favorite celebrity couples (they just seem like they’d be fun to hang with!), so my ears perked up when I heard they’re selling the four-story townhouse they bought in Brooklyn last year. They spent more time updating and redecorating it than actually living in it.
Krasinski told the Wall Street Journal they’re traveling so much that they decided to let the Park Slope gem go: “The house is so special, someone who can spend every night there should have it.”
I found some photos of how it looked before they bought it, too — check it out!
John Krasinski & Emily Blunt’s Townhouse in Brooklyn:
The house has 5,200 square feet on four levels.
The listing says:
Keeping true to its original build of 1909, this French Renaissance Revival townhouse greets you with an airy glass entry, surrounded by artisan quality crown moldings and millwork. To the left, through the first set of pocket doors is the front parlor, replete with bay windows, pier mirror, detailed inlaid borders and a second set of pocket doors that lead to the middle parlor with leaded stained glass windows and built-in bookshelves that wrap around the wood burning fireplace.
Here’s a photo of the front entry + living room taken before they bought it:
And here’s the same room today:
It looks less formal with the open shelves, which now go up to the windows.
Another old photo shows how much darker and more traditional the dining room was before:
The dining room was redesigned with the young family in mind:
It’s almost unrecognizable as the same space. (I hope they kept that original light fixture someplace!)
The house has 7 bedrooms + 3 baths. The master bedroom before:
The same bedroom today:
The architect they worked with was Michael Ingui of Baxt Ingui.
The kitchen puzzles me a bit. It went from this…
…to this, which looks narrower:
Be ready to climb a lot of stairs if you buy this place! 😉
Want it? They’re asking $8 million. Check the listing for more photos and information from Corcoran agents Karen Talbott and Kyle Talbott (photos by Evan Joseph Images).
