Golden Globe-winning actress and Brooklyn resident Michelle Williams is transforming her heart-breakingly lovely Prospect Park South dream house, renovating it to even further perfection.

Plans include bringing back the house’s original clapboard siding and streamlining the rear to restore the already incredible mansion to its original majesty and glamour. Her proposal comes before the Landmarks Preservation Commission Tuesday.

That’s more than double what he paid for the pad a mere five years ago.

After splitting with long-time partner Matthew Barney in 2013, Björk — the celebrated Icelandic musician and performance artist — remained in their expansive Brooklyn Heights penthouse.

Björk finally bought Barney out of his share in the home on December 22, paying him $1,611,325, according to public records.
