Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds may have established their fame in the Hollywood Hills, but they reside in two notably different properties in New York State.
The couple and their four children primarily live in verdant Pound Ridge – a town in Westchester County – just over a one-hour drive from central Manhattan. Their homey estate spans 11.65 acres of space – but its graphite exteriors are equally worth celebrating.
The home is warm and rustic – drawing inspiration from its woodland surroundings – the perfect base for the family, far from the bustle of the city. The couple's second property, however, could not be more different.
Blake and Ryan's apartment in Tribeca, Manhattan, where the couple stays when attending appointments in the city (including the Met Gala, no less) is much more contemporary.
Here's everything you need to know about the two properties.
The quiet estate in Pound Ridge, Westchester County

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' main home (with Ryan and mom outside) is located in Pound Ridge, a leafy town that offers a slower pace of life than its slightly southern neighbor, Manhattan. Despite its rural qualities, the neighborhood is a hive of celebrities, including Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and Mike Myers.
Per the New York Times, a 'little bit more country' than its 'better-known neighbors', meaning it offers proximity to the city without sacrificing serenity. The home reportedly served as the backdrop to Taylor Swift's 'All Too Well' short film that aptly refers to 'An Upstate Escape' – conveniently similar to the location of the couple's property.
Alongside its verdant location and (likely) appearance in Taylor's film, it's worth noting that Blake and Ryan's Pound Ridge home has seven bedrooms, and six bathrooms, spanning 11.65 acres of land, including an outdoor barn. It's a country paradise – perfect for the young family – but undeniably different from their second home...
The chic apartment in Tribeca
In contrast, their Tribeca apartment epitomizes a Serena van der Woodsen lifestyle. Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively is (arguably) best known for portraying the aforementioned Serena – an Upper East Side fashion figure – who dresses and lives in luxury, and the couple's city home celebrates precisely that.
Located in an exclusive Lower Manhattan building, the home boasts quintessential New York City-luxe features, including 11-foot high ceilings and an exposed brick wall, with a raw, industrial aesthetic.
All apartments in the building enjoy a private key elevator and shared facilities, including a pool, fitness center, and landscaped roof terrace. What more could we crave in the concrete jungle?
