Since their first date in 2008, 2010 wedding at George Clooney’s home in Italy and firstborn baby in 2014, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have been one of America’s favourite celebrity couples.
In addition to a wonderful marriage, Emily and John have owned some equally remarkable homes including their current house in London; a Brooklyn town house they sold in 2018; a full floor apartment they still own at The Standish in Brooklyn; and one of their first homes, a mid-century modern in the Hollywood Hills they sold in 2016 for US$ 3.5 million.
The Hollywood Hills home is back on the market for six million dollars.
Emily and John bought the 3,657 square foot Hollywood Hills home in 2014 for US$ 2.57 million, and spent the next two years adding their unique style to the four bedroom home. Located above Mulholland Drive at the end of a private cul de sac and hidden behind tall trees, the home was built in 1965 but looks showroom new.
On over a third of an acre double lot, the lush yard includes a huge partially covered flagstone patio; fountain and extensive landscape lighting; gazebo; saltwater pool; beautiful green grass; topiaries; and views of the mountains, canyon and city skyline. Most special are the large, leafy oak and olive trees – some of which appear to predate the 58-year-old home.
The inside of the house is as inviting as the outside – with glass walls throughout, and motorised skylights and retractable blinds to bring in the bright Southern California sunshine. A brilliant foyer leads into the timeless open concept floor plan with hardwood floors throughout. And the sunken living room – with a gas fireplace, and beamed ceiling and dining room – replicates the outside views.
There is also a courtyard; indoor and outdoor speakers; closed-circuit cameras; a study; and a chef’s kitchen with custom cabinets, colourful island, Subzero refrigerator and wine fridge, Wolf range and double Miele dishwashers. There are four bathrooms including a marble clad en suite bath with soaking tub and steam shower.
Hollywood Hills is the ideal location for both visitors and locals that’s near the film studios, Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive, Los Angeles Zoo and Griffith Park. Celebrities who have lived or still do in the Hills include Katy Perry, Kevin Costner, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Timberlake.
