After years of searching for their perfect townhouse, back in March 2011, Hollywood star couple Sarah Jessica Parker and hubby Matthew Broderick bought a truly special townhouse, which is described to be rare and the treasure of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village for $19 million. But now, just 18 months later, after splashing out some serious money to refurbish it and even not moving into the place, the couple referred to as ‘fickle house hunters’ sets sight to fetch some big property profits. As the acting duo due to concerns over a lack of privacy, have now listed their spacious six-bedroom stately Greek Revival-style townhouse located just off Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village’s Gold Coast for $25 million. However, the price doesn’t seem such a high amount, considering that billionaires like Facebook co-founder Sean Parker and Google co-founder Sergey Brin have their homes in Greenwich Village, the place where a new ultra-luxury condo building asked for whopping $1 million for just a single parking space, to become the most expensive parking in New York City.
Location: Described as truly special, this stately Manhattan townhouse on 20 East 10th Street is located just off the posh Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village’s Gold Coast and is convenient to all that the village, SoHo, and Chelsea have to offer.
This 25’ +/- wide townhouse which is described to be a rarity in the Village boasts a total of 12 rooms with 5 bedrooms. The townhouse’s front stoop leads through the stair hall to the massive, beautifully-detailed double parlor with 12’+/- ceilings & a pair of fireplaces.
The third floor features 3 bedrooms, which comes equipped with big closets and 2 full bathrooms. Whereas the entire fourth floor is the master suite boasting spectacular bath, a large south terrace, and multiple walk-in closets.
Further, the 5th floor is actually a dramatic loft-like space that can be configured in a myriad of ways.
The bottom floor or ‘garden floor’ provides access to an outdoor garden which has a huge Boffi kitchen and breakfast area with direct access for dining al fresco.
The residence also provides grand entertaining possibilities with access to the planted south tiered garden.
Notably, the accommodation remains filled with ample amount of light coming in from high, wide windows at both front and rear.
This truly exceptional home boasts granite countertops, hardwood flooring, fully equipped library, security system, and 7 fireplaces.
Reportedly, the acting duo has moved on to a pair of townhouses in Brooklyn Heights, which they plan to combine into a 7,000 sq ft. single family spread.
