After eight months on the market, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s historic Park Slope townhouse has found a buyer, albeit for $1.5 million less than they’d hoped. The couple first listed the seven-bedroom, 20-room home at 586 4th Street in September for $8 million, but the Post saw through city records that it’s closed for $6.56 million. The couple previously said they put the home on the market because work kept them away too much and “The house is so special—someone who can spend every night there should have it.”
The house was built in 1909 in a French Renaissance Revival style. Today it’s part of the Park Slope Historic District and is just steps from Prospect Park. Blunt and Krasinski bought it for $6 million in the fall of 2016 and then undertook a renovation led by Michael Ingui of Baxt Ingui Architects. As the Post notes, a project of this size likely cost around $500,000, meaning the couple actually lost money on the sale.
It retains a ton of historic details, such as gorgeous crown and panel moldings, inlaid wood floors, stained glass windows, built-in bookshelves, pocket doors, and wood burning fireplaces.
The kitchen is quite modern, with a 48″ six-burner Wolf range, built-in appliances, custom cabinetry, and radiant heated floors. It’s also quite bright thanks to large floor-to-ceiling windows and a long skylight
The master suite is on the second floor and has large bay windows and an en-suite bath with light wells and a stained glass skylight. The third floor has four more bedrooms.
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 up to the private backyard.
