For being such a high-profile couple, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have managed to keep a fairly low profile in the West Village, but when it comes to their real estate, the gossip is inevitable. The latest whisperings come via a source who told the Post that the couple is selling their townhouse on Charles Street for $19 million off-market. In 2016, Parker and Broderick dropped $34.5 million on two adjacent townhouses on West 11th Street with the intention of combining them into one mega-mansion. While the work has been ongoing, they’ve been living on Charles Street, so perhaps the sale plans means their new home is ready.

The charming West Village townhouse that was once home to Hilary Swank is back on the market for $10.995 million (h/t Curbed). Swank and her then-husband Chad Lowe bought the four-story property at 33 Charles Street for $3.9 million in 2002 and sold it four years later for $8.25 million, a significant profit. The current owner is Harry A. Lawton III, the president of Macy’s, who closed on the home in 2017 for $10.5 million, just under the current asking price.

Downtown style and bohemian flair allow for clever use of space in this West Village studio. Asking $700,000, the color-filled home at 9 Barrow Street is tucked into an 1895 building with an elevator and a doorman in true gracious pre-war fashion.

If you follow the NYC streetscape Instagram circuit, the historic 1822 home at 17 Grove Street in the West Village will certainly look familiar. Its adorable facade, corner location, and the fact that it’s one of the oldest standing wood-frame houses in the Village, all make this property photo-ready. But looks alone don’t seem to be doing the trick, as the Post tells us that the home has lowered its asking price to $8.75 million from the $12 million it listed for in April.

This one-bedroom co-op at 41 Jane Street in one of the most sought-after blocks of the wonderful West Village is just the sort of apartment so many are hoping to find when looking for a pied-a-terre or a place with just enough room for one (or a very close couple). Asking $789,000, the apartment has plenty of pre-war charm, exposed brick, high ceilings, and a wood-burning fireplace.

This just-right West Village co-op is the result of the combination of one lucky pre-war apartment and its downstairs twin; it may be priced like a one-bedroom co-op at $1.445 million, but it has the looks–and back garden–of a classic townhouse. The one-bedroom duplex at 92 Horatio Street has had a recent tasteful renovation, and two floors of space and an enchanting 250-square-foot garden on the ground floor are enviable just to start with. All of those things are located in one of Manhattan’s most sought-after neighborhoods.

The single-family townhouse at 409 Bleecker Street in the West Village dates from 1860, and has had the same owner for over 40 years. The Italianate townhouse also had the good fortune of being located in one of the neighborhood’s many charming residential and shopping districts. The current owner is the widow of the late Donald E. Westlake (who also wrote under the pen name Richard Stark), a prolific American writer. The current retail tenant–trendy French fashion label Zadig & Voltaire–contributes $32,000 a month in rental income, which might make the home’s $9.75 million ask seem quite worth it.

Three years after Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois announced plans to transfer the deed of his West Village townhouse to a nonprofit organization run by a former chief of the Ramapough Indians—part of the Lenape Nation, the original Manhattanites—the millionaire activist (and artist Louise Bourgeois’ son) has decided to hold onto it after all. Bourgeois was working on plans to transform the historic wood-frame home into a patahmaniikan, or a prayer house, when he decided that he was in fact “married to this building” and no longer eager to give it away, as the New York Post reports.

Part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, this bright studio at 715 Washington Street is now on the market for a cool $575,000. The floor-through unit—previously configured as a one-bedroom—might be small in space but it’s big on charm, with pre-war details including original hardwood floors, painted brick walls, built-in shelving, and a decorative fireplace in the sleeping area.

Featuring a fresh renovation by the owner, interior designer Shawn Henderson, this West Village co-op at 791 Greenwich Street blends a loft-like feel with classic Village charm. The biggest move made by Henderson—who counts Will Ferrell and Glenn Close as clients—was demolishing the wall between the former living and dining rooms in favor of an open concept. He also restored the original pine floors and created “pockets” of white and exposed brick throughout. Add to those charming details a hard-to-beat location near the corner of Bethune Street (“in the heart of the quietest and quaintest part of the West Village,” as the listing boasts) and you’re looking at a quintessential downtown pad for the asking price of $1.6 million.
