Actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have put their recently restored four-story Brooklyn townhouse on the market for $8 million, which the couple first purchased for $6 million last fall. The seven-bedroom, 20-room home sits on a prime block in Park Slope at 586 4th Street, just steps away from Prospect Park. According to the Wall Street Journal, Blunt and Krasinski are selling the recently-purchased property because they’ve haven’t spent enough time there because of work.“We’ve been nomads for a while now, but that’s the nature of the business,” Krasinski told the WSJ. “The house is so special—someone who can spend every night there should have it.”
Located in the Park Slope Historic District, the townhouse, built in 1909, features a French Renaissance Revival style with an airy glass entry and beautiful crown moldings. The middle parlor includes leaded stain glass windows, built-in bookshelves and a wood burning fireplace.
The chef’s kitchen features large floor-to-ceiling windows and a long skylight, bringing in lots of natural light. The space is equipped with 48″ six burner Wolf range, built-in appliances and custom cabinetry. Plus, there’s an island with a large Rohl porcelain sink and radiant heated floors.
The master suite sits on the second floor and includes large bay windows. The master bath features light wells and a stained glass skylight. Four more bedrooms can be found on the third floor of the townhouse, along with a bathroom with a skylight.
On the garden level, there’s a large family room with unique exposed ceiling beams and a laundry room. Double-doors lead to a wide stairway that leads to the private backyard.
