Jenna Lyons, the creative director of J.Crew who left her husband of nearly 10 years for a lady, is selling her gorgeous Park Slope apartment. The much published and sought after seven bedroom apartment has been featured on a multitude of magazines and blogs as a gem of Garfield St. Sadly, the 4,400-square-foot interior and four levels were not enough to keep the couple together. But given that the house has a wine cellar, a rear garden, and impeccable design — you have to wonder why.
Jenna and her husband bought the townhouse for $1.3 million in 2004. But given what the couple has managed to do with the place, the property is now on the market for $3.75 million. Jenna and her soon-to-be ex hubby are still hammering out a custody agreement for their little boy Beckett, who was the subject of much pink toenail polish controversy when he appeared in a J.Crew advertisement with his powerhouse mommy.
If there was ever any proof that money doesn’t make married life instantly more harmonious, Jenna’s 1880s townhouse with restored white armchairs can prove just that. Luckily, there is more to commitment and partnership than fancy floor plans, cherry blossom gardens, and the dollar bills to make it all possible.
