J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons is selling her stunning and widely-published Park Slope townhouse. The stylish, well-decorated four-story 1880’s Brooklyn home once graced the cover of the now-defunct Domino magazine and a slew of other design-obsessed publications. According to Curbed, the sale of the townhouse is prompted by Lyons’ divorce from her artist husband Vincent Mazeau, with whom she bought the house with in 2004 for $1,300,000.
Now listed for $3,750,000, the spectacular North Slope townhouse, at 20’ wide with 4 stories plus a finished cellar, has been impeccably renovated to perfection. Every modern amenity has been added, while a complete restoration has preserved the integrity of the home’s original details. An open double parlor, beautiful (but not fussy) plaster cornices and medallions, aged pine floors, and 7 restored limestone mantels are just a few of the special details of this magnificent house. The casually chic home boasts 7 bedrooms, 3.5 luxuriously appointed baths, an eat-in cook’s kitchen with top of the line appliances, large private terrace off the master bedroom and a cellar that has been converted to a media room for entertaining. The ground-up renovation includes all new mechanicals, electric and plumbing, new rear façade and roof. The house has a landscaped, irrigated South facing rear garden anchored by a mature Dogwood tree. The property is currently set up as a 2-family residence with renovated garden rental apartment.
