Actress Jennifer Connelly’s Former Park Slope Mansion Lists for $14.5M
Celebrity couple Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany made headlines when, in 2008, they abandoned Brooklyn for Tribeca and traded in their $8.45 million Prospect Park West mansion for a $6.9 million penthouse on West Street. The Brooklyn-bred Academy Award winner was among the first A-list celebrities to take up family residence in Brooklyn back in 2003, so it was especially sour. (In 2013, Connelly and Bettany put the full floor loft-type Tribeca penthouse on the market for close to $9 million.)
Now, nine years later, the couple's orignial stately turn-of-the-century townhouse is back on the market for $14.5 million.
Located at 17 Prospect Park West in Park Slope, the limestone 6,500 square-foot home was designed by distinguished New York architect Montrose W. Morris. It retains charming original details such as stained glass windows, mahogany columns, five working gas fireplaces and intricately carved mantles.
Exploring the seven bedroom Brooklyn landmark offers surprises at every turn, including a magnificent 600-bottle wine cellar discreetly placed under the home’s stoop as well as a Juliet balcony. Modern finishes bring the alluring townhouse into the 21st century with a full chef’s kitchen, a media room and spa-like bathroom features.
The Post reports that the current owners are a New York family connected to Apollo Global Management. A dream team of four brokers has the listing: Lindsay Barton Barrett, Jessica Hirsch, Cristina Criado, and Daniel Dinko, all of Compass.
