Scarlett Johansson's marriage to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds seemed almost too good to be true. How exactly did two such incredibly attractive people get anything done during the day, for pity's sake? The two very busy actors seemed to have bucked young Hollywood's trend of hooking up and then breaking up after twenty seconds, and their purchase of a gorgeous, highly lauded home called, "The Wong House", in Los Angeles, two years after their secret wedding, seemed further proof that the duo was built to last. Alas, their incredibly full work schedules ultimately drove them apart, and though both have called their break-up, "incredibly painful", they seem to have chosen career success over each other. Just months after purchasing the home, and just after Ms. Johansson sold her previous home at a $3 million loss, the two actors called it quits. As Ms. Johansson gears up for the premiere of "The Avengers", and begins to speak publicly about the recent end to her rebound relationship with notoriously cranky actor, Sean Penn, the divorce gears continue to turn with the separation and sale of assets from her relationship with Mr. Reynolds.
Purchased for approximately $2.9 million, the couple added various eco-friendly features to The Wong House while managing to maintain all of the features that made the home famous. The 2,385 square foot property houses two bedrooms, three bathrooms, an attached garage, a living room area with floor-to-ceiling windows that extend the length of the house, a massive open plan kitchen, a den, a library, a master suite with its own walled private garden and outdoor shower, stunning views of the surrounding area and beach, a deck, a salt water swimming pool, and a fire pit. The former couple has listed the home for $3.65 million, and it will be interesting to see if their subtle additions, and their A-list status, will be enough to entice a new owner.
