John Burke Krasinski is an award-winning American actor, writer, and producer. His interest with acting started during his school days, starring in a high school play that was written and directed by classmate, and future co-star, B.J. Novak. In 2000, Krasinski got a gig briefly working as a script intern on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”. However, his true pursuit of a career in acting began when he started attending the National Theater Institute, and England’s prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company in the early 2000s. After graduating from Brown University in 2001, the star would relocate to New York City and make a living as a waiter while also performing in commercials and off-Broadway plays.
After making several small appearances on commercials and television series, Krasinski would finally make his film debut in the biographical film “Kinsey” (2004). Numerous other films and small-time television roles would follow until Krasinski garnered mainstream success as the lovable office prankster Jim Halpert on “The Office” (2005-2013). Since then, the actor has starred, written, produced, and directed numerous projects – quickly becoming a Hollywood favorite for his diverse acting style and often likable characters.
John Krasinski Home
From his West Hollywood house to his quiet colonial in Ojai to a townhouse in New York, ‘Where does John Kraskinski live?’ is a tough question to answer. We’ll do our best…
John Krasinski House Brooklyn (Current)
John Krasinski NY house is located in Brooklyn, and it doesn’t disappoint. Following in fellow actor Matt Damon’s footsteps – who broke purchase price records in Brooklyn when he paid over $16M for his unit in the same building – Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt bought the entire 8th floor of the brand new The Standish building.
According to 6sqft, “Designed by Frank S. Lowe and built in 1903, The Standish is a 12-story Beaux-Arts building that originally served as a 122-key hotel. It was converted in 2007 into 90 rental units and then in 2015, after DDG and Westbrook Partners acquired the property for $60 million, the building was converted into 29 condo apartments.”
John Krasinski home Brooklyn cost the actor a whopping $11,000,350, which includes both 8th-floor units. The units weren’t publicly listed, so info on them is limited. But, we do know that the building has a 24-hour doorman, a concierge, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and even a bike room.
John Krasinski House Brooklyn (Former)
John Krasinski’s former home Brooklyn is a sight to be seen! Looking for a change of scenery, Krasinski nabbed a four-story Park Slope townhouse, located not far from Prospect Park in the Park Slope Historic District, in 2016. The actor bagged this 5,200 square-foot 1909 limestone for $6.5 million and then threw down an additional $300,000 for extensive renovations to restore much of the interior of the home as well as add some modern upgrades, such as cozy heated floors and a fully decked-out kitchen complete with a skylight! The home also features 7-bedrooms, 3 ½ -bathrooms (with a second stained glass skylight built into the master bathroom), a guest suite, a luxurious rear patio with bluestone pavement, a wood-burning fireplace, bay windows, and an adorable outdoor garden!
Despite plans to make a permanent home of the townhouse, Krasinski would later sell the property in 2018, explaining that he and his family were often unable to spend much time at the house due to scheduling issues. “The house is so special – someone who can spend every night there should have it,” Krasinski told The Wall Street Journal in response to the unexpected sale. Though the home was originally listed for $8 million, John Kraskinski Brooklyn home eventually sold for $6.5 million.
Krasinski and fam are currently living a nomadic lifestyle due to work – but with their history in real estate, we can wager their next big property purchase will be even more impressive than the last!
John Krasinski House Los Angeles (Former)
John Kraskinski LA house was located in Hollywood Hills West. Krasinski purchased this seriously sweet contemporary back in 2009 for $1.59 million. The 4,800 square-foot home, which sits on a spacious 15,700 square-foot lot, features a cozy living room space with a brick fireplace, a den, large terrace, a massive walk-in closet & dressing area, a rooftop deck, a swimming pool, 6-bedrooms, and 5-bathrooms.
After deciding to relocate, Krasinski sold the home in 2016 to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Kendall Jenner for $6.5 million. Kendall lived here for basically no time at all before a scary stalker situation forced her to sell it and move to a gated community nearby with heavy security.
