Today's Evil Beet Gossip

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt List Historic Townhouse in Brooklyn

Though they bought it less than two years ago for $6 million, busy as beavers film and television actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have their freshly upgraded and impeccably restored French Renaissance Revival-style townhouse on a prime park block in Brooklyn’s leafy and historic Park Slope neighborhood back up for sale at $8 million.

With an elaborately detailed limestone façade and a classic raised stoop entry, the four-story, semi-detached residence has four and potentially seven bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in about 5,200-square-feet of comfortably sophisticated interior space that marries artistic sensibility and a modern lifestyle with conscientiously restored architectural detailing. “The Office” star told the property gossips at The Wall Street Journal that he and his “The Devil Wears Prada” star wife live a professionally necessary nomadic life and, hence, don’t get to spend much time in residence so they thought it better to sell the undeniably extraordinary house on to “someone who can spend every night there….”

These two have impeccable taste.
