Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have an epic love story that began when they met in 2008. Today, they’re known as one of our favourite celeb couples. Fifteen years later, they’ve worked on several projects together, from films like A Quiet Place to their two daughters, Hazel and Violet.
One of those other projects was the 3,657-square-foot Hollywood Hills home they purchased in 2014 for $2.57 million. Over the next two years, they transformed the midcentury-style house – adding touches that reflected their own style to both the indoor and outdoor spaces – before selling it in 2016 for $3.5 million. They currently spend their time between their home in London, England and a full-floor apartment at The Standish in Brooklyn, New York.
The former Blunt-Krasinski Hollywood Hills home is back on the market for $6 Million, and now’s the perfect time to look at how the talented duo left their mark on the property.

A Quiet Place
Built in 1965, the house is set on a sprawling double lot measuring more than one-third of an acre. It’s nestled on a cul-de-sac in the Hollywood Hills above Mulholland Drive, with majestic, leafy olive and oak trees that pre-date the home.
Enjoy the View
From its high perch, the property has breathtaking views of the mountains, Runyon Canyon and the Downtown Los Angeles skyline.
The Great Outdoors
Although it was built in the mid-1960s, it still looks like new both inside and out. In addition to the stellar views, the yard includes lush green grass, a gazebo, landscape lighting, topiaries and a fountain.
Livin’ it Up
Guests are welcomed to the home via a bright foyer that leads into an open-concept floor plan with hardwood flooring throughout. The recessed living room has a beamed ceiling, a gas fireplace, and large windows that reflect the natural surroundings while bringing in ample light.
Blunt admitted in a 2021 interview that she won over Krasinski by making Ina Garten’s roast chicken recipe, so it makes sense that their home would have a kitchen that was designed for creating delicious meals. This impressive chef’s kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, a colorful island, a Subzero refrigerator and wine fridge, a Wolf range, and double Miele dishwasher. Just imagine the dinner party feasts you could prepare in this space!
Dinner is Served
Remarkable features like glass walls, retractable blinds and motorized skylights make this home perfectly suited for Southern California. One room that encapsulates its brightness is the dining room, which has ample space for all of your entertaining needs.
The home has four bedrooms, including the primary bedroom with gorgeous vaulted ceilings, large windows, and sliding glass doors that lead to the patio. There are also four bathrooms, including a marble en-suite with soaker tub and steam shower.
For those work-from-home days, the study provides a warm, sunlit space for writing your next screenplay or negotiating a contract by day, or a spot to kick back with a book at night.
Outdoor spaces include this partially-covered flagstone patio with comfy seating, lighting for when the sun sets, and speakers to play your favourite tunes.
Without a doubt, one of the home’s most desirable features of the former Emily Blunt and John Krasinski home is the saltwater pool. Who wouldn’t want to gather with your family and friends on those warm California days? There are spaces for lounging, dining and even optional shade to escape the sun.
