Jazz Singer-Songwriter Norah Jones Just Sold Her Cobble Hill Home Equipped with a Heated Pool
Grammy-winning jazz singer-songwriter and pianist Norah Jones has parted ways with her historic home where she reportedly wrote her famous songs. It seems like the heated pool of the property was a good selling point as the 4-story townhouse located in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood was said to be sold less than 4 months after it was listed on the market. Its original listing involved an initial price of $8 million, but the final selling price is unknown.
The 40-year-old Jones, whose most famous songs include jazz hits like Don’t Know Why, Sunrise, and Come Away with Me, first bought the home in 2009 for about $4.9 million. After her purchase, she then invested in upgrades like adding a few windows to the facade, a heated pool, and a spa in the backyard.
Even with the new features, the residence’s original details, which came from circa 1843, still remain. Spanning 25 feet wide and a 4,500 square foot lot, the home currently has 4 bathrooms and a home office, which can be converted to a new fifth bedroom.
The home’s kitchen gives off a rustic bohemian vibe. It is equipped with an antique Garland stove, reclaimed wood pantry, and a working fireplace for warmer days.
It also has other rooms that let in a lot of natural light. The breakfast area or sunroom overlooks the backyard, while the bedrooms are sunlit and have parquet flooring and wood-framed windows. The outdoor space is also the perfect place for intimate gatherings with its spacious area, bluestone patio, heated pool and spa, and shades by wisteria canopy.
Based on the photos of the listing, the room where Jones has reportedly written songs includes a piano. Unfortunately, though, it’s not included in the sale. Jones has revealed that she started looking for a house with a yard when she first got her dog, Ralph. Since then, she has looked at this historic residence as an escape from city life. She revealed that it is where she started her family, had magical times, and made a lot of music.
She is now a mother of two children with husband Lee Alexander. Jones has also won several awards including Grammys. She has released 7 studio albums including the Grammy-winning 2002 record, Come Away with Me. Jones recently released her latest album, Begin Again, in 2019.
Even though she has given up this home, Jones still maintains a home in Brooklyn which she bought in 2015 for P6.25 million
