John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Go Green in Ojai
Just as Reese Witherspoon is moving out of Ojai, Hollywood couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are moving in. The pair bought an eco-friendly estate back in June for $2.15 million, according to property records and a report by TMZ.
Best known for his stint as funny co-worker on Jim Halpert on “The Office,” Krasinski married actress Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau,” “The Five-Year Engagement”) in 2010. Krasinski recently sold a home in West Hollywood for $880,000. He also owns another home in West Hollywood that he purchased for $1.857 million in early 2009; that 6-bedroom pad likely serves as the couple’s home base.
But, like most actor-actress couples, a second home in a far more secluded locale is always appealing. Located about an hour and a half outside of Los Angeles, Ojai offers a quieter, less frenzied pace than L.A. and undoubtedly is less prone to paparazzi stake-outs.
Originally listed for $2.494 million, Krasinski and Blunt’s new home sits on the site of the original Ojai hotel. The 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home was built in 1982 and spans 4,177 square feet. Powered by solar energy with access to well water, the home has a separate guest wing, four fireplaces, a three-car garage and pool with spa.
