Michelle Williams has settled for a new mansion in Brooklyn. The American actress has bought the 114-year-old Colonial revival at 1440 Albemarle Road which had been on the market for $2.45 million. Michelle Williams, who has been a Brooklyn resident, was won over by the mansion that is nestled in a landmarked section of the historic Ditmas Park neighborhood just south of Prospect Park. The 18-room residence was designed by architects Robert Bryson and Charles Pratt and built in 1905.The stately home which has lost the original clapboard siding does need some extra attention to restore its glory. The 6,480 square feet home is spread over three floors and features eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry, eight gas and wood-burning fireplaces with original tile work and mantelpieces plus a high-ceiling basement.Boasting of a paparazzi-proof garage, the statuesque mansion comes with a two-story front porch that features Ionic and Doric columns.It also features a spiral bridal staircase and original stained glass sky light. While the first floor has a double parlor, a formal dining room, a sun room and an eat-in chef’s kitchen, the second floor features a master wing with a dressing room and a large, bathroom with a pedestal sink and claw-foot tub. It also accommodates two more bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a home office that leads to a private porch. The third floor has four bedrooms, a full bathroom and a rooftop deck with treetop views.
