Keira Knightley's House: A New Marriage Equals a New Address

By on September 17, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

It would be seriously easy to totally hate Keira Knightley, if she weren't kind of, well, cool.  The Academy Award-nominated star of such movies as "Bend It Like Beckham", the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise", "Pride and Prejudice", "Atonement", "The Duchess", "Never Let Me Go", and "A Dangerous Method", has been acting since elementary school.  She began her professional career appearing in commercials and modeling, and then went on to work on television.  From there, she made the leap to film work in the early 2000s, and she hasn't slowed down since.  Determined to be more than a "pretty face", she has crafted an impressive resume that includes everything from big budget blockbusters to costume dramas to arthouse fare.  She has become one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, and has managed to garner critical accolades and appear on the FHM's "100 Sexiest Women in the World" list a ridiculous number of times.  She has done that rare thing of becoming both a sex symbol and a critical darling, and her success is envied by many actresses.  She recently married James Righton, a British musician and performer with the band, Klaxons.  The pair purchased a home together in East London last year, and they recently put it back on the market.

Keira Knightley's house is 3,200 square feet and has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.  The stunning home also features a beautiful back patio, that is accessible from the rear living room.  This is not to be confused with the reception room, or the front living room, of course.  Keira Knightley's house also sports a screening room, another living room, two office areas, a formal dining room, and a large kitchen.  Spread out over three floors, the house was originally purchased for approximately $3.8 million.  Fast-forward to 2013, and Keira Knightley's house is now back on the market for close to $4.7 million.  There is no word on where the couple will be going next, but based on her ever expanding career, it probably won't be to a smaller property.
