After Four months, Norah Jones Sells Memorable Cobble Hill Townhouse

Grammy-winning artist lyricist Norah Jones is in agreement to sell her home in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, which she has supposedly sold after four months for $8 million. Until now, the cost of the final deal is obscure.

Jones initially bought the noteworthy residence for $4.9 million in 2009 and significantly overhauled it by adding a couple of new windows to the façade, just as a warmed pool and spa in the terrace. It is known that the Grammy champ is an enthusiastic swimmer. A large number of the home’s enchanting unique details of around 1843 remain, however, most quite is its Greek Revival ironwork.

The minor details

The four-story house is 25 feet wide and ranges about 4,500 square feet. As of now, the house is arranged as four rooms and one home office, yet the last could without much of a stretch be changed over into a fifth room.

The vibe of the kitchen is Bohemian, there is an antique Garland stove placed on one side and a wood cabinet that holds all the utilities. A working fireplace turns all the attraction towards itself. A separate breakfast area or we can call it a sunroom is present that is above the backyard and overlooks it.

What will happen to the beloved piano?

The rooms can be illuminated by sunlight, with parquet ground surface and wood-surrounded windows mirroring the home’s beguiling history. The open air space is enormous, with a bluestone yard concealed by a wisteria canopy and the previously mentioned warmed pool and spa.

Posting photographs of the home show a 1940s-period Krakauer piano remaining in a room sitting above the patio, where Jones purportedly composed numerous tunes. Lamentably, in any case, the piano won’t be included in the deal.

Last year while talking to the Wall Street Journal, the singer Norah Jones said that she doesn’t want to leave this place because it makes her heart warm. She further said that her desire to buy a house with a backyard began when she first got her dog.

She wanted an escape from city life because of her dog. The “don’t know why” star further said that she made a lot of music, started her family and had magical times there. Although she is leaving this house, she has ownership of another house in Brooklyn, which was bought by her for $6.25 million in 2015.
