What are those new buyers doing to Jennifer Connelly's former house?
Movie stars Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany used to live in the huge beautiful house/mansion at 17 Prospect Park West on Park Slope's Gold Coast but in 2008, the celebrities sold the 5,000 square foot, 9-bedroom house for $8.45 million and moved to Tribeca. Connelly allegedly told one online site that they moved because the entire family felt the house was haunted.
Maybe the new owners do too. Maybe they're trying to rid the house of ghosts. How else to explain why a house in such pristine condition -- I know because photos of the Connelly house appeared in magazines -- can be undergoing renovation for nearly a year now. The new owner is 17_Prospect_Park_West_midsizereportedly a Google bigshot. All I can say is that he must be very very particular because it's been non-stop renovation nearly since he bought it. What can they be doing to it that hadn't already been done?
I just don't understand that. The house was in fabulous shape. Maybe the new owners want something completely different inside but then why buy that type of house to begin with? Who asked me anyway? No one but I'd be happy to take a tour of the new owner's digs and get back to you all (hint, hint).
