Well, as the poet says, “there’s a first time for everything,” and thanks to J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons, we can now notch the above phenomenon off our list.

In the midst of a public divorce, and what is reported to be a burgeoning relationship with fashion executive Courtney Crangi, the 43 year-old Ms. Lyons has chosen Stribling to list the 7 bed, 3.5 bath, 4,400 square foot brownstone in Park Slope that she owns with her estranged husband, artist Vincent Mazeau. According to Curbed, Ms. Lyons and Mr. Mazeau bought the home in 2004 for $1.3 million and are looking to double their money, asking for $3.75 million now.

Judging from the stunning photos on the listing, they just might get it. Ms. Lyons sense of style is apparent throughout the brownstone’s four stories and the attention to detail is very clear (see: claw-footed tub in the bedroom, an antler-laden dining room and what appears to be a “shoe room”).

While there’s no word on whether Ms. Lyons intends to stay in the neighborhood (we’re out of the gossip loop at Ginger’s Bar), we look forward to seeing what she’ll do to the next house upon which she gets her hands.
