Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are selling their Park Slope brownstone.
The couple purchased the Italianate row house for $1.91 million in 2006. Located at 36 Sterling Place in the Park Slope Historic District Extension II, it is now on the market for $4.599 million. The Wall Street Journal was the first to announce the listing.
“We moved there when I was pregnant with my first daughter,” Gyllenhaal told the paper. “We had been living in a rented loft in Manhattan, and we were looking to make a home.”
Since their children no longer attend school in the neighborhood, the family decided to move, they told the Journal.
The house was renovated by Elizabeth Roberts in 2007, according to the listing, from Debbie Korb of Sotheby’s. There are four bedrooms, and three baths — two full and one half bath.
The open kitchen, den and dining area are on the garden floor. A living room and library can be found on the parlor floor, and the bedrooms split among the two floors above.
The Italianate brownstone has plaster details, several marble mantels, two working fireplaces and original floors. The kitchen has a modern feel with exposed beams and teak wood counters.
The master bath features a striking copper tub set among shimmering black and Portuguese tiles. The garden, Sarsgaard’s project, features a deck and outdoor bathtub and shower.
No word yet if Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard plan on staying in Brooklyn. She currently stars in HBO’s “The Deuce,” which often shoots in the borough, and the couple are famous for shopping with big headphones on at the Park Slope Food Co-op.
