DeNIRO’S NEW YORK CITY TOWNHOME FOR SALE & SON IS HIS AGENT
Remember the exterior of the Huxtable’s home in “The Cosby Show”, or the townhouse where Audrey Hepburn’s character lived in “Wait Until Dark”? Both are just doors away from Robert DeNiro’s charming, historical townhouse – for sale for the first time in 30 years.
Notable others who have lived in this cluster of town homes were former New York City Mayor Jimmy Walker, painters Paul Cadmus and Jared French and journalist Linda Ellerbee. When you see this picturesque tree lined street with James J. Walker Park across from the home. Scenes from Robert De Niro’s film “Raging Bull” were shot in the park.
The 5-story townhouse, built in 1852, consists of 4,000sf with 5BR and 3.5BA. Though we’re not able to see inside, the floor plans are fascinating to study. According to the plans, the room arrangements appear not to have changed much since the home was originally built, but should be easy to reorganize for today‘s lifestyle. [more below]
We’re willing to bet that anyone paying $14m will probably have the budget for a little renovation. This is also the same townhouse that poet Marianne Moore lived in during the 20’s. With the history of the neighborhood and that of the house, this property in sought after West Village is very intriguing indeed.
Mr. De Niro is known to be a savvy real estate investor, and interestingly his son, Raphael De Niro is the listing agent on this historic abode. Asking $14 million for longtime home. Deal Source: elliman.com
