Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany's Brooklyn Home, Estate of the Day
Celebrity couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly are the latest to say bye bye Brooklyn and head to a posher address. Curbed reports that the pair have picked up a Tribeca penthouse that was listed at $6.995 million. Their new home is rather modern and bright, a far cry from their old home in Brooklyn. The nine-bedrom home on Prospect Park West is a turn-of-the-century limestone dowager. The home on a corner is full of the details you'd expect in a home of the time period, elaborate, polished wood carvings, plaster ceiling details and herringbone wood floors. There are fireplaces in the living room, dining room and kitchen as well as in three bedrooms. The servant's quarters on the top floor includes four small bedrooms, a full bath and a storage area. It has ben updated with central air and there is a large garden in the back of the house. There are no kitchen pictures and I do wonder if three and a half baths is enough for a home that is over 5,000 square feet and has nine bedrooms. Also if the furnishings in the Brooklyn house belong to the couple I think I can see why they want to move, Calder mobiles and flokati rugs don't quite suit this home. Curbed reports that the couple bought in 2003 for $3.7 million and are now listing for $8.5 million through Sotheby's.
