John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have purchased a home in Ojai, Calif. this week, making them the latest celebrities to move to the area.
The couple's move arrives just weeks after Reese Witherspoon left the city, which lies northwest of Los Angeles. Ojai, nicknamed "The Shangri-La of Southern California," is surrounded by hills and mountains, and is well known for its hotels as well as an abundance of organic agriculture.
The Krasinskis' new home runs on renewable energy technology, according to TMZ. It's fitting the theme of the ecologically friendly businesses and houses in Ojai.
The couple purchased the 4,177-square-foot-pad, 4-bedroom pad in June for $2.15 million.
In addition to the spacious bedrooms, the home includes 4-and-a-half bathrooms and giant solar panels, which will help provide power by using energy from the sun.
Moreover, the house sits on five acres of land with hiking trails as well as a new pool and spa, according to TMZ. Also, the property comes with a separate guesthouse and is within walking distance to an organic farmer's market.
Krasinski, 32, is best known for his role on NBC's "The Office." The actor married British actress Blunt, 29, in 2010. The actress is best known for her roles in films such as "The Devil Wears Prada" and "The Five-Year Engagement," among others.
While Krasinski recently moved to Ojai, the actor just sold a home in West Hollywood for $880,000, reported Zillow.com. He also owns another home in West Hollywood that he purchased for $1.87 million in early 2009.
In other celebrity real estate news, Sheryl Crow has put her Hollywood compound on the market for $15.4 million, according to PerezHilton.com. The property comes with three homes on 11 acres.
The main home includes a library, wine cellar and chef's kitchen, while the mid-sized property reportedly has the best views of all three.
