Michelle Williams Just Bought This Crumbling Brooklyn House

When lovely Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams sold her lovely Boerum Hill townhouse for $8.8 million—a full 17 percent over its asking price—speculation turned to where she and her daughter Matilda would move next. The answer, according to a some news from neighborhood , is Prospect Park South. A 114-year-old Colonial Revival on Albermarle Road, to be precise, which has a columned, two-story front porch that led its broker to heavily reference Gone With the Wind in the listing. The eight-bedroom, six-bath house is in contract, and it was last asking $2.45 million. So it’s huge, historic, and filled with fireplaces—”on architectural steroids,” one might say—but it’s also definitely in need of some upgrades. Williams apparently said, “I love living somewhere that feels like the suburbs but is next to an express train.”
