Add John Krasinski and Emily Blunt to the A-list celebrities who've decamped to Brooklyn. The acting couple have bought a four-story, semi-detached limestone townhouse in Brooklyn's lovely Park Slope neighborhood, according to Variety.

The acting duo paid $6 million for the 20-foot wide, 4,400-square-foot house built more than a century ago by architect Arthur R. Koch. It has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and a couple of tiny chambers that could be used as offices or spare bedrooms.

The property is just steps away from Prospect Park, Brooklyn's version of Central Park. The home boasts inlaid parquet floors, six fireplaces with carved mantels, and a mahogany-paneled dining room. The kitchen features white, Shaker-style cabinets and taupe-toned granite counters.

Back in 2008, the vintage home hit the market for $3 million and wound up selling for $2.275 million in 2009, according to the local site Brownstoner. It then returned to the market in 2013 for $4.75 million.

The glam duo are escaping from Los Angeles, where they've been selling properties. They've recently listed their Hollywood Hills West home for $3.495 million, and sold another, nearby property earlier this year to Kendall Jenner for $6.5 million. They are still waiting on a buyer for their $3.25 million Ojai, CA, vacation home.

Blunt is currently starring in the film "The Girl on the Train," and her hubby is set to play the title role in Amazon's "Jack Ryan."
