If you are a Labyrinth fan who is also a multi-millionaire, this might be the home for you. Jennifer Connelly and husband Paul Bettany bought this stunner of a home in 2003 and it is currently back on the market, for $14.5 million.
Built in 1889, the 6,500 square foot Limestone mansion has seven bedroom and three and a half baths, a wine cellar, a backyard and a dumbwaiter. Though the Connelly-Bettanys haven't occupied the home in a few years, all subsequent owners have maintained the historic charm of the home. In fact, it's a like grab bag of dreamy antique features; mahogany, herringbone floors, FIVE fireplaces, stained glass windows galore.
According to the Compass website, the updated kitchen is also a drool-worthy feature of the home:
On the home's garden level is the one of the most beautiful and functional kitchens you'll see. It features handcrafted cabinetry, a massive center marble island beneath a Lindsey Adelman chandelier, top of the line appliances including glass fronted Subzero fridge, 48" La Cornue range, two dishwashers, and a convenient tucked away pantry. Find a cozy sitting area centered around the fireplace, looking out into the home's gated garden. And while it's hard to know what is most stunning in this home, one possibility is the 600-bottle wine cellar sublimely tucked under the home's stoop, both a visual and functional gem.
The home is located in Park Slope, a charming Brooklyn neighborhood that is a favorite among celebrities and up-and-coming politicians alike. It truly is a beautiful house for a beautiful mind (that's a stretch, sorry).
