for sale: J. Crew house

J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons has been going through a lot this year: the sale of her employer to a private equity shop, a split with her artist husband, a rumored relationship with jewelry exec Courtney Crangi, and now, the sale of the frequently-published, frankly gorgeous Park Slope townhouse bought by the couple for $1.3 millionin 2004. The home, located at 178 Garfield Place, has been a fixture on the glossy home magazine circuit, and is now listed for $3.75M. The listing claims the house has seven bedrooms spread among its 4,400-square-foot interior, and there's no denying this 20-foot product of the 1880s is quite the Brooklyn roost. Highlights include a full-floor master suite, bright renovated kitchen, highly-organized wine cellar, and an elegant rear garden "anchored by a mature Dogwood tree." Oh who are we kidding, this whole place is a highlight. Sadly, it's only proof that a beautiful piece of real estate might not be enough to hold a marriage together.
