A handful of months after she filed for a divorce from actor Karl Glusman — his claim to fame is the 2015 movie “Love,” a 3-D erotic art film most known for its explicit unsimulated sex scenes, and a short time before the internet went berserk with rumors that she had already coupled up with “Magic Mike” beau-hunk Channing Tatum, with whom she attended this year’s Met Gala while wearing a see-through dress, actress and showbiz scion Zöe Kravitz made a clandestine $1.45 million off-market deal to acquire a historic retreat in the wealthy Westchester County hamlet of Pound Ridge, New York. The seller, per tax records, was model and action-genre actress Maggie Q, who purchased the property about eight years ago for $1.23 million.
Picturesquely situated over a babbling brook and known locally as Aaron Wood’s Mill, the rustic structure served as a cider mill in the late 1700s and a sawmill in the mid 1800s. In the early 20th century, the structure was acquired and restored by American businessman, inventor and philanthropist Hiram Halle, a part owner of Gulf Oil, now part of Standard Oil, who restored dozens of 18th- and 19th-century homes and buildings in the sleepy, bucolic hamlet. Later, the old mill was converted to a unique and charming residence with two and potentially three bedrooms and two bathrooms in about 2,600 square feet.
Hidden away on two thickly wooded acres, the boho-chic barn-like home features hand-hewn wood beams, wood-clad walls, polished wood floors, and period-appropriate mullioned sash windows as well as a slew of carefully integrated modern updates such as an up-to-date gourmet kitchen, a monumental minimalist fireplace surround in the double-height great room, and a spa-style bathroom with a copper soaking tub set against a massive picture window.
Outside, a flat, tree-shaded lawn stretches out to the wood’s edge behind the house and a stacked stone and wrought iron bridge spans the scenic stream that also passes beneath the house.
Set to reprise her role as Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in the hotly anticipated DC superhero film “The Batman,” and making her directorial debut with the upcoming film “Pussy Island,” which she also wrote and that stars none other that Channing Tatum, the “Big Little Lies” star has long maintained a home base in Brooklyn’s hyper-trendy Williamsburg neighborhood where, since 2015, when she picked it up for $3.2 million, she’s made her home in a 3,000-square-foot loft-like converted warehouse.
