Though they’re both red carpet veterans, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds much prefer to spend their time at home with their four young children. “Blake and Ryan are avid homebodies,” a source told Us Weekly last year. And it’s no wonder, given how reportedly stunning their multiple properties are and how much joy it seems to bring Lively to fill their spaces with beautiful art and decor. “I design my friends’ homes. For free,” Lively wrote in an Instagram post back in 2018, joking, “Of all the bad decisions I’ve made, this may be the most fun.” Over the years, the Gossip Girl alum has also shared new pieces that she’s added to their growing art collection, including work by artist and painter Megan Coonelly, as well as a custom painting of Reynolds’s childhood home. “This piece of art is the greatest present my wife has ever given me,” Reynolds captioned a photo of the painting by Danny Galieote in 2019. “If there’s ever a fire, I’m grabbing this first. I’ll come back for Blake.” The famously private couple is eager to keep their home life out of the spotlight, but over the years they’ve given their fans tiny glimpses into their various properties. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of those peeks into their gorgeous homes.
Before Lively and Reynolds were an item, Reynolds owned a property in Los Feliz that he bought with his then wife, Scarlett Johansson. The pair paid $2.9 million for the restored midcentury-modern pad, known as the Wong House, built in 1969 by California architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman. The stunning one-story post-and-beam pad featured three bedrooms, including a primary suite with dual sinks and an outdoor bathtub, spread out across 2,835 square feet. Images of the residence reveal entire walls of glass and sliding glass doors that opened from the kitchen directly onto a wooden-deck patio, as well as a large pool and lawn. Following their split, the couple listed the home for $3.65 million in 2012 and sold it for $3.5 million shortly afterward.
In early 2012, about six months after Lively and Reynolds began dating after meeting on the set of Green Lantern, the couple paid $2.3 million for a home in Bedford, New York, about an hour north of the city. Neighbors at the time included other Hollywood A-listers like Bruce Willis, Ralph Lauren, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The residence reportedly measured 4,753 square feet, with three bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, with a two-bedroom guest suite situated elsewhere on the two-acre property. “They picked a very traditional kind of house for people who work in Hollywood,” a source told People at the time. “They wanted a house with character, not a trendy, modern house. Their place is very homey.” The couple sold the pad for a reported $2.4 million in May 2013 after buying a larger home in the area.
The couple next purchased a $5.7 million mansion in Pound Ridge, just a few miles away from their original upstate home. The entire estate reportedly spans 11.65 acres and includes an outdoor barn, while the main Colonial-style house measures 8,892 square feet, boasting seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. There is also a separate guest house. The small glimpses that Lively and Reynolds have shared of their home reveal dark hardwood floors, slate-colored walls, and a chic, rustic exterior. This is still their primary residence.
