Emily Blunt and John Krasinski List Los Angeles Home for $8 Million @ 6:46 pm
On Jun 11, 2016
The Los Angeles home of actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski—which was gift wrapped by neighbor and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel one year—is listing for $8 million, according to listing agent Catherine Marcus of Sotheby’s International Realty. Ms. Blunt and Mr. Krasinski purchased the contemporary West Hollywood home in 2009 for $1.86 million, according to public records. The renovated five-bedroom home measures about 4,900 square feet and has a roof deck and swimming pool, said Ms. Marcus, who referred to it as “a sexy family home.”The couple lived in the hillside house for several years and then decided to renovate it, adding the pool and a third story, Ms. Marcus said. But they “wound up buying another house” and no longer live there, she said. Their daughter, Hazel, was born in 2014.
A spokesperson for the couple said they’re selling because they’ve decided to relocate to the East Coast. Within walking distance of the hotel and celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont, the house has views of west Los Angeles framed by floor-to-ceiling windows. With a long driveway, the home can’t be seen from the street and is “super private,” Ms. Marcus said. Comedian Mr. Kimmel lives across the street, and he and Mr. Krasinski developed a yearly tradition of pranking each other at Christmastime; Mr. Kimmel’s gift-wrap of Mr. Krasinski’s home was documented on his show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Mr. Krasinski, known as Jim on the sitcom “The Office,” will appear in the upcoming movie “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” while Ms. Blunt is filming “The Girl on the Train.”
