Celebrity home: Brooke Shields's Greenwich Village 1910 townhouse

In the March 2012 issue of Architectural Digest, actress Brooke Shields admits she’s a sucker for older homes. (Who isn’t?) Of her and husband Chris Henchy’s relentless real estate search throughout Manhattan, the actress said, “Our shared ideal was the sort of confident old house that has been lived in for generations.”

Eventually, they found it in the form of a four-bedroom brick townhouse built in 1910 and located in posh Greenwich Village. A self-proclaimed “real-estate romantic,” Shields teamed with decorator David Flint Wood to outfit the home with many classical elements blended with modern sensibilities.

Dark woods and monochromatic paint schemes are contrasted by white baseboard and crown molding. Elegant fireplaces are located in the living room as well as the kitchen, which also includes a custom dining table just feet from the stove top — a perfect arrangement for any foodie.
