Who Is This Couple?
Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel are the stars of HGTV‘s Property Brothers. They married in 2013, only a few months after the meeting. The couple has been featured on talk shows like Good Morning America as they revealed their struggles with infertility and documented their efforts to build a family with adoption. In January 2015, they adopted a baby girl named Emmy Lou. It was clear that it was not just a marriage for them but also about building a family. We’ve come so far together, said Deschanel at the time. We love each other and we’re going to get through this.
How Did They Meet?
The couple met on the set of a commercial for Verizon Fios, in 2007. The spot was canceled soon after they met, but the love connection stuck around, with the two soon falling for each other.
Zooey Deschanel talked about how she felt when Jonathan Scott asked her to marry him: I’ve never seen him so nervous in his entire life. And he came up and he said, Zooey… will you be my wife? And I said yes!
Details About their House
After a month-long search, Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel found their dream home, a vintage house they are in the process of restoring.
The couple fell in love with the 4,900-square-foot house’s high ceilings, hardwood floors, built-in cabinets, and wood paneling. They also were attracted to its backyard, which backs up to fields and hillsides. Scott said it reminds him of growing up on his family’s farm near Scottsdale, Ariz., where he first learned about construction from his dad’s projects at home. The yard is great, he said. I was out there cutting grass for an hour yesterday.
What Makes Their House Their Home?
This is their dream home not just because it’s in a great neighborhood with the necessary privacy, but because they can transform it into their own. This house has everything they want: the perfect basement with enough space for an office, an indoor-outdoor space where they can enjoy their loved ones, and plenty of room to spread out.
The Final Piece to their Complete Life
It may have taken 10 years, but this was the family’s long-awaited home, where they can finally put down roots. This is what we’ve been waiting for, Scott says. The children run through the halls, exploring their new space. They have a ballroom, an indoor pool and a nine-car garage–it’s everything that we’ve ever wanted.
It’s perfect, echoes Deschanel. We’re really lucky. , Jonathan Scott has made his career in home design. Likewise, Zooey Deschanel has established herself as an accomplished actress and musician.
