Norah Jones Lists Boho Chic Cobble Hill Townhouse for $8M


Back in 2009, when singer-songwriter Norah Jones scooped up a four-story townhouse on a quiet tree-lined block in Cobble Hill, she was among the first major celebrities to settle down in Brooklyn. Ten years later, the Grammy winner is selling the 5-bedroom property for $8 million.

In that time, Jones has released four albums, launched three international tours and had two kids. Brooklyn has changed a lot during those 10 years, too: Cobble Hill is now one the city’s most expensive neighborhoods and dozens of A-listers live in the borough.

Jones’s stunning Amity Street townhouse is in the heart of celeb-dense Northwest Brooklyn. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz own a brownstone nearby in Cobble Hill. Ethan Hawke has a townhouse just on the other side of Court Street in Boerum Hill. And just a couple of blocks north in Brooklyn Heights,  Matt Damon recently bought a $16.95M penthouse.

Peek Inside Norah Jones’s Townhouse

While many celebs own in the borough, it’s hard to say how many really live there full-time. Not so with Jones — this property feels like home. The artist’s signature eclectic style fills every last inch of the 4,500-square-foot space. Take a whirl through the photo gallery below to get a sense of her cool Marrakesh bazaar–meets–Vermont barn aesthetic.

In the kitchen, exposed brick and beams set a cozy backdrop for the reclaimed-wood pantry and custom teak island. An expansive breakfast room opens up onto the backyard. Massive by even Brownstone Brooklyn standards, the garden features a bluestone patio, a hot tub and a heated lap pool — Jones is a big swimmer.

Upstairs, formal living and dining rooms give way to a casual entertaining area at the back of the house. Here, a collection of Moroccan glass and brass lanterns hang from the ceiling and a wall of windows overlooks the backyard below. With exposed brick and a cocktail bar made from reclaimed wood, the space would be the perfect mise-en-scène for a soft-jazz jam session.

Up another level is the master suite, complete with a 300-square-foot terrace. While the cedar walk-in closet and black marble fireplace are lovely, the master bathroom is the real show stopper: Turquoise Italian tiles pair with a royal blue fireplace mantel. There’s a standing steam shower, ideal for recovery after a pool workout, and if that doesn’t suffice, the oversized Waterworks tub should do the trick.

Finally, on the fourth floor, there are two more bedrooms and a loft-like work space with exposed wooden beams. Other notable property features include a powder room made out of reclaimed Vermont barn wood, a geothermal well, a rooftop solar panel system and two sets of washer-dryers — even celebs do laundry.
