Celeb home tour: Michelle Williams' Brooklyn townhouse

By: Sameera Raja

While rumours of her moving to Los Angeles swirl around, Blue Valentine actress and Oscar nominee, Michelle Williams, is finally saying goodbye to her chic four-storey Brooklyn townhouse and listing the property.

The Boerum Hill corner-home was the actress’ first purchase with Brokeback Mountain co-star and late partner, Heath Ledger, in 2005 for $3.6 million. The spacious residence is 22-feet-wide with 12-feet-high ceilings and a parlour floor that’s almost 1,000-square-feet. 

If that doesn't scream luxe New York living, this single-family home is tree-lined, has six to eight bedrooms, a deluxe kitchen design, three-car garage, wine cellar in the finished basement, and a multi-purpose room that could be used as an office space or nursery.



But the most spectacular part of this home is the massive – and private! - rooftop garden, mimicking both the imagery and tranquility of Brooklyn’s Botanical Garden. It features a waterfall, customized trellis and seating area perfect for entertainment all year-long.



Though Williams may be headed in a new direction, this sky-lit family home in the heart of Brooklyn can be yours for a listed price of $7.5 million. 


Details:
  • Built-in entertainment surround sound
  • Rooftop garden
  • Wine cellar
  • Finished basement
  • Six to either bedrooms
  • Extra-large master bath
  • Deluxe kitchen
  • Five-fixture ensuite
  • Pre-war moldings
  • Central air-conditioning
  • Nursery or office space.

Open-concept living

What sets this townhouse apart from most is a unique open-concept layout that flows throughout the home, offering a direct view from the living to the outdoor space in the back. Several statement pieces, such as the chaise lounge, blue lamp, and globe pendant lights, give elements of contrast against the wood features and white walls.

Deluxe kitchen

The modern ceiling fan, pre-war moldings and wood flooring give this deluxe kitchen a nice mix of vintage and modern style. It also has a walk-in pantry, and direct access to the rooftop garden.

Private oasis

It's hard to find this type of gem in the city. Tucked away at the back of the home is a private rooftop garden with a built-in seating area, an ivy-covered trellis, self-watering planters and plenty of room for entertaining guests.

Ensuite

This space is a treat many dream of but only some can have in the heart of the city. A five-fixture master bath - in the extra-large master bathroom- has everything you can imagine, including an antique double sink, claw foot tub, towel heater and walk-in rain shower.
