Grammy-winning artist Norah Jones has sung her farewell for her dwelling place in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, which she has supposedly sold after merely being on the market for four months. She initially listed it with a price tag of $8 million back in November 2019. However, the cost of the final deal is unknown. Check out what makes this Greek Revival home such a masterpiece!
A MIXTURE OF THE OLD AND THE NEW
Jones initially bought the noteworthy residence for $4.9 million in 2009. Since then, she has significantly overhauled it by adding a couple of new windows to the façade. Other contemporary amenities of the Smart Home system-operated house include radiating heat floors, centralized air conditioning, rooftop solar panels.
The Grammy champ is an enthusiastic swimmer, so it’s no surprise that she also added a disappearing heated lap pool in the 1,440-square-foot backyard with a Wisteria sunshade. There’s also a bluestone patio with movable parts that can cover the eight-person, smartphone-controlled hot tub whenever it’s not being used.
A TREASURE TROVE OF EXQUISITE DETAILS
The four-story, five-bedroom brick home is filled with enchanting unique details that date back to the 1800s, including wooden ceiling beams, classic moldings, marble mantles, and Greek Revival ironwork. The house is 25 feet wide and ranges about 4,500 square feet.
The vibe of the rustic kitchen is Bohemian, and there is an antique Garland stove placed on one side as well as a wood cabinet that holds all the utilities. There’s also a working fireplace and a separate breakfast area that can be called a sunroom above the backyard, with a full view of the patio—plus, an adjacent media room powder room.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE BELOVED PIANO?
The rooms are illuminated by sunlight, with parquet ground surface and wood-surrounded windows. It mirrors the home’s beguiling history, which is evident in the photographs of the house.
Also, the pictures clearly show a 1940s Krakauer piano placed in one of the rooms. It sits above the patio, where Jones has composed numerous tunes. Lamentably, in any case, the piano won’t be included in the deal.
JONES’ LOVE FOR THIS HOME
Last year, while talking to the Wall Street Journal, Norah Jones said that she doesn’t want to leave this place because it genuinely warms her heart. She further said that her desire to buy a house with a backyard began when she first got her dog. She wanted an escape from the city life because of her pawed companion.
The Don’t Know Why songstress went on to say that she had made a lot of music, started her family, and had magical times in this charming home. But although she is leaving this house, she has ownership of another property in Brooklyn, which she acquired for $6.25 million in 2015.
