Actress Michelle Williams purchased a landmarked Victorian home in Prospect Park South that was last listed for $2.5 million.

The star of films such as “Oz the Great and Powerful,” “My Week With Marilyn,” and “Brokeback Mountain” was a Brooklyn resident for many years, but sold her Boerum Hill townhouse for $8.8 million last fall, which was $1.3 million over the asking price.

Her new abode, at 1440 Albemarle Road, features a whopping eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, a two-story front porch and wood-burning fireplaces, according to the blog Ditmas Park Corner. It was built in 1901 and is in need of renovations.
