In 2011, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick purchased a 150-year-old townhouse in Greenwich Village for $18,995,000. Last week, they sold the home for $18,250,000—a loss of $745,000, plus however much they invested in restoring and refurbishing the place. Whoops!
According to the New York Times, Parker and Broderick first listed the house in late 2012 for $24.99 million. Last summer, they lowered the price to $22 million. The most recent asking price was $19.95 million: $1.7 million more than what they ultimately got for it.
The master suite, which encompasses the entire fourth floor, has a fireplace and an en-suite bath that features an oval hand-carved stone tub and its own fireplace, along with a nearly 25-by-10-foot private terrace overlooking the rear garden. One floor up is the spacious family room and media center, with two skylights.
Then there are the closets — capacious enough to tantalize even Carrie Bradshaw, Ms. Parker’s fashionista “Sex and the City” character. The floor plans show a wall of closets near the master bath and a nearly 17-by-7-foot dressing room, as well as a walk-in closet, which, judging from the photographs that were in the listing, looked as if it had stored some of Ms. Parker’s own shoes and designer outfits.
Still—even at the low, low price of $18,250,000—this was New York’s most expensive closing of the week.
(“Capacious enough to tantalize even Carrie Bradshaw.” Haha, Jesus.)
