Oscar-winning actress Michelle Williams has bought a Colonial Revival-style home in Prospect Park South in Brooklyn, N.Y. that has been described as something out of Gone With the Wind.
The home has a two-story front porch, 18 rooms total, eight bedrooms, six baths, eight gas and wood-burning fireplaces, and a large decorative spiral staircase that has a stained glass skylight above it, according to Mary Kay Gallagher Real Estate’s website.
The home at 1440 Albemarle Road is described as “The Tara of Prospect Park South” in its listing.
Built by architects Robert Bryson and Carroll Pratt, the home consists of three floors, and also a basement, full of detail and original craftsmanship that shows a glimpse into a time prior.
The listing had an asking price of $2.45 million, reading:
“The home with the right amount of tender love and care can be restored back to its original grandeur.”
Curbed reported that Williams sold her town home in Boreum Hill for $8.8 million in December 2014, yet she did not mention where her and her 9-year-old daughter Matilda would be moving to. The town home in Boreum Hill was bought by Williams and then-boyfriend Heath Ledger in 2005. She finally put the home back on the market for $7.5 million and sold it before the end of 2014.
The Prospect Park South home was built for a prominent Brooklyn lumber dealer at the turn of the 20th century. Williams will once again be neighbors with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay Abaire, who was her previous neighbor when she lived at Boreum Hill.
