In the past decade, Michelle Williams has moved to Brooklyn, then to Brooklyn again, and now, again, to Brooklyn. Her new house isn't in Boerum Hill or Red Hook, her previous chosen neighborhoods, but in Prospect Park South.
According to Ditmas Park Corner, the 114-year-old Colonial Revival home (which Curbed calls a "crumbling" fixer-upper) is on Albermarle Road and cost around $2.5 million. It features a two-story porch, stained glass, curved windows eight-bedrooms, six-baths, fluted columns, fireplaces, and one more feature Williams wanted: “I love living somewhere that feels like the suburbs but is next to an express train.”
Brownstoner once called the home and its location impressive—"It’s on Albemarle Road, the main street and showcase block of the neighborhood, and it’s a huge behemoth in a neighborhood of large houses, sitting on a prime corner lot. This was a home built to impress, and it does so quite well." It was originally built for Brooklyn lumber dealer J.C. Woodhull in the early 1900s.
You can check out the full listing here, but it's just going to trigger daydreams about unattainable scenarios like summer dinner parties on that porch.
