Norah Jones Bought The ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ House You Were Saving For (In Your Dreams)

in YD News


Can you believe it’s been 9 years since that infamous book came out and your life changed forever? We’re being facetious, but honestly, for a lot of people the phenomenon that was “Eat, Pray, Love” the book, and the subsequent box office hit starring Julia Roberts and latin dreamboat Javier Bardem, changed the game for what it meant to live spiritually, to go on a journey of self-discovery and to live your most “authentic” life. It was actually a huge moment for yoga (and it’s proliferation). This was all before we lived our lives based on inspirational quotes posted to Instagram.

If you’ve been pining for the EPL experience we have some bad news. You can spend that $6.25 million on something else (a lifetime supply of spaghetti?) because that’s what Norah Jones shelled out when she bought up the Brooklyn carriage house Liz Gilbert (Julie Roberts) lived in.


The house, which is actually a converted firehouse from the 1840s, has a wood-burning stove, exposed wood beams, plank floors, and a glassed-in greenhouse in the back, perfect for any of your eating, praying, or loving needs, we suppose.



Unfortunately, we’ll all just have to revisit it through the cinematic experience and a bowl of dark chocolate drizzled popcorn.

Have a look at the video tour of the house made by the real estate company and be taken away to a simpler time, before Ketut The Healer showed us our future. At least you can still go to Italy, India, and Bali, right?

Just for old time’s sake. Ah, better days:

    Nice pics. But it occurred to me: While I admit being curious about the location, and the info could no doubt be ferreted out on the internet, is it really kosher to disclose someone’s exact street address? Seems rather bad form IMO…

  • The space is so beutiful.

  • Oh my GAWD! I secretly love this book (shit….), so this article had me ROLLING! Loves to Liz Gilbert and all, but I had to laugh my ass off at this article. AMAZING! 😀

    P.S. I’ve never seen the movie. Give me a little credit! 😉
