Emily Blunt & John Krasinski looking to make a profit on Brooklyn home

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are selling their Brooklyn home in New York.

The Devil Wears Prada star and her husband paid $6 million (GBP4.6 million) for the pad two years ago, and now they're hoping to offload the seven-bedroom Park Slope home for $8 million (GBP6.2 million) following a massive renovation.

The old place was built in 1909 and comes with original stained glass windows and a panelled dining room.

Krasinski recently told The Wall Street Journal that he and his wife decided to sell as they were unable to spend as much time at they would have liked in Brooklyn, due to their work schedules.

"We’ve been nomads for a while now, but that’s the nature of the business," he said. "The house is so special - someone who can spend every night there should have it."

The couple sold three homes in Los Angeles last year (16), including one Kendall Jenner snapped up.
