Under-the-Radar Hunk Josh Hartnett Lists Very Hunky Victorian

New, 3 comments

Often in our lonely hours, our thoughts turn to Josh Hartnett. What has he been doing since Black Hawk Down? What even is this Penny Dreadful show? Is it true he disappeared because he "didn't trust anyone"? Now that the undisputed star of the male actors from Saint Paul, Minnesota Wikipedia category page has put his lovely renovated Queen Anne Victorian home on the market, we can temporarily divert these lines of inquiry with a glimpse into his very tasteful surroundings.

Hartnett, who in a better world, would be on the hunkiest people in Minnesota Wikipedia category page, too, has lived in this historic home since 2002, when he bought it for $2,395,000. Which is the same price he's trying to sell it for! What a doll! The Star Tribune reports that Sotheby's says he's looking to "downsize locally as he will be spending less time in the region."

The AIA Guide to the Minneapolis Lake District identifies this home as the Walter P. Douglas House, but sorry guys, it's definitely the Josh Hartnett House now. The guide also states that it's among the oldest on Minneapolis' Lake of the Isles.

Like Hartnett himself, the extensively renovated Josh Hartnett House has aged well enough. Unlike Hartnett, it has built-in cabinets, a big picture window, some beautiful original woodwork, and a modern kitchen that looks straight out of a thoroughly pleasant but not exactly earth-shattering home catalogue. The listing notes "sophisticated spaces, exquisite finishes, stained glass windows," and a wine cellar.
