Nearly thirteen years ago, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard spent $1.91 million on a Park Slope townhouse at 36 Sterling Place. Though their two daughters grew up and went to the exclusive St. Ann’s school in the friendly neighborhood, they now attend school elsewhere, so the couple has decided to list the brownstone in favor of being “able to walk [the children] to school,” Gyllenhaal told the Wall Street Journal. In addition to convenience, however, they’ll also be looking at a nice profit, considering the home has hit the market for $4,599,000.

The couple moved to the house when Gyllenhaal was pregnant with their older daughter. “We had been living in a rented loft in Manhattan, and we were looking to make a home,” she told the Post. At the time, she told The Post of her move:

I love living in New York. But the West Village became terrible. Paparazzi waiting for me, following me. Thirty fotogs camped outside the door. It’s scary. Especially since I now have a baby. I have to hope Brooklyn will be quieter, safer. Look, I know I should just be grateful for all the good that’s happened to me. And I am. But I’m also getting scared.

After moving in, they hired favorite Brooklyn architect Elizabeth Roberts, who preserved the 3,600-square-foot home’s historic 1880s bones but added modern features such as her signature rear glass doors off the kitchen. This room was outfitted with reclaimed chestnut floors, teak counters, a six-burner gas stove, and a Heath ceramic Rais fireplace.

The adjacent 55-foot-deep, south-facing garden boasts an outdoor bathtub and shower. Sarsgaard, who according to his wife is “a knowledgeable and excellent gardener,” landscaped the yard with plantings including cherry trees and a meyer lemon tree.

There’s another Rais fireplace in the parlor-floor living room, along with a drop-down home theater projector.

The rear of the parlor floor has been outfitted as a music room for the girls.

Upstairs, there’s another wood-burning fireplace in the master bedroom, which connects to a home office.

The master bath features a wooden bathtub that the couple ordered from Scotland.
