Emily Blunt and John Krasinski price Hollywood Hills West home at $8 million

Actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are on the move for the second time in as many months.

Following the November listing of their country home in Ojai, the couple has put their contemporary-style house in Hollywood Hills West on the market for $8 million.

Set behind gates on more than a third of an acre, the renovated and expanded Midcentury home has walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, brick accents and a reimagined kitchen with Italian cabinetry and a wide center island.

More than 4,700 square feet of open-plan space contains a great room, a media room, an office and a wet bar. A freestanding fireplace sits between the living and dining rooms.

Six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms include a master suite complete with a custom walk-in closet. A soaking tub and marble countertops highlight a spa-like master bathroom.

On the third floor, a sliding glass door opens to a rooftop patio with a dining area, lounge and fireplace. A swimming pool, privacy hedges and formal landscaping complete the setting.

The couple bought the house in 2009 for $1.86 million, property records show.

Catherine Marcus of Sotheby’s International Realty is the listing agent.

Blunt, 32, has starred in such films as “Sicario” (2015), “Edge of Tomorrow” (2014) and "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” (2011). “The Girl on the Train” and “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” are among her upcoming films.

Krasinski, 36, is known for his role as Jim Halpert on the comedy series “The Office” from 2005 to 2013. Last year, he appeared in the film “Aloha” with Bradley Cooper, and will soon be seen in the upcoming "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi."
