Hollywood power couple Rose Byrne (best known for “Bridesmaids” and the television show “Damages”) and Bobby Cannavale (Emmy award winner for “Boardwalk Empire”) have scooped up a $2.2 million Boerum Hill townhouse, according to The Real Deal. Interestingly, the couple, who have been dating since 2012, bought the home at 453 Warren Street from another pair of actors, Annie Parisse and Paul Sparks. Sparks appeared on “Boardwalk Empire” with Cannavale; he and Parisse bought the property in 2013 for $1.79 million.
Parisse and Sparks configured the two-family home as a single-family residence and outfitted it with casual, coastal decor to compliment original features like exposed brick (now painted white) and ceiling beams. The parlor floor contains the living room, dining area, and modern kitchen, as well as a powder room, laundry area, and north-facing deck from which the rear garden is accessed.
The lovely master suite, complete with fireplace, is on the second floor, along with a renovated bath, and a large second bedroom that could easily be split up into two rooms.
The garden level is currently configured as family room, office space, and guest room, but there’s the option to convert it to a separate apartment (though we doubt Byrne and Cannavale would do so). There’s also access from here to the rear garden, and the house has a full cellar with additional storage space. In addition, the listing claims there’s “the potential to expand the house with additional buildable square footage.”
