Busy Philipps and her husband, Marc Silverstein, are setting down roots on the East Coast. The former Busy Tonight host and the screenwriter sold their longtime Whitley Heights home last month in a $3.95 million off-market deal and recently snapped up a rural property in New York’s Hudson Valley for $1.625 million. Situated in the upstate town of Rhinebeck, the getaway comprises a 4,193-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms set on four and a half thickly wooded acres.
The two-story house was originally built in 1979, according to Dirt, and features a rather unique layout that includes exposed wood beams in the bedrooms, a steel-and-wood floating staircase that connects the two floors, and a large poured concrete fireplace that serves as the centerpiece of the main living area. A number of the walls are painted bright hues, like an arresting magenta in one of the sitting areas and an electric teal in the bathroom.
Large picture windows and skylights flood the home with natural light, and an entire wall of glass sliders off one sitting area opens onto an elevated terrace overlooking the surrounding woods. The updated kitchen boasts a wall of glass-fronted floor-to-ceiling cabinets that flows easily into a spacious dining area. Elsewhere on the property, there are a number of outbuildings that can be easily converted into cozy art studios, storage, or play spaces for the couple’s two kids. In addition to their recent real estate purchase, the family also has a Chelsea town house that they’re renting for the time being, ideal for Philipps’s commute into the city for her new gig on Tina Fey’s upcoming Peacock sitcom Girls5eva.
