WEA in the News: Emily Blunt and John Krasinski sell L.A.-area home for over the asking price

Actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have parted ways with their second home in Hollywood Hills West this year, selling the renovated single-story for $3.505 million, or $10,000 over the asking price.

The fenced and gated house, built in 1965, came to market in September and was under contract in about three weeks. Records show Blunt and Krasinski bought the property two years ago for $2.595 million.

The roughly 3,500-square-foot house has vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, light hardwood floors and contemporary fixtures. A U-shaped countertop/bar surrounds the kitchen and an oversized island.

A great room with a wall fireplace, a formal dining room, a media room, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms also lie within the floor plan. The master suite features a separate sitting room and a pair of walk-in closets.

A swimming pool and spa, a covered patio, lawns and mature trees fill grounds of more than a third of an acre.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent.

Blunt, 33, has film credits that include “Sicario” (2015), “Edge of Tomorrow” (2014) and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” (2011). She stars in the recently released thriller “The Girl on the Train,” a film adaptation of the Paula Hawkins novel. Krasinski, 36, gained fame for his role as Jim Halpert on the long-running sitcom “The Office.” Among his film credits are “Aloha” (2015) and this year’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.”

Earlier this year, the couple sold another home in the area to reality television personality-model Kendall Jenner for $6.5 million. They reportedly bought a historic townhouse in the Park Slope area of New York in late 2014 for $6 million.
