Musician Norah Jones Lists Her Radiant Cobble Hill Home for $8M
After purchasing the row house in 2009, the nine-time Grammy winner treated it to several upgrades, including an unconventional backyard pool.
Norah Jones is parting ways with one of her two Brooklyn homes. The American singer, songwriter, and pianist—who has sold more than 50 million records worldwide—bought the first home, a historic Cobble Hill residence, 10 years ago for $4,900,000. Since that time, Jones made several chic interior upgrades and managed to squeeze a pool into the backyard.
Nestled on a charming, tree-lined street, the 25-foot-wide townhouse offers sought-after features for city buyers. For starters, the home’s corner location offers three exposures, flooding the interiors with natural light on all four floors. The extra-deep, 1,440-square-foot backyard, complete with a heated pool and hot tub, provides a spacious city oasis.
The home, which dates back to 1843, offers five bedrooms and three baths, all spread across 4,500 square feet. Various intimate and open spaces provide room for entertaining. Striking original details are woven throughout the four floors, including hand-carved moldings, exposed wooden beams, and intricate Greek Revival ironwork.
