Back in January 6sqft reported that the 25-by-85-foot landmarked Greek Revival townhouse at 436 West 20th Street–with 9,000 square feet of interior space and a fully-stacked celebrity pedigree–had been re-listed for $19.75 million. The home, whose residents have included Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Glenn Close, Courtney Love and Olivier Sarkozy, has been on the market since 2010. Returning this summer for $18.75 million, the Chelsea home’s five-unit configuration might prove daunting to prospective buyers, though a thorough structural and aesthetic renovation in 2013 plus the promise of almost $600,000 a year in rent certainly sound like positive attributes.
Currently configured as five units, the property can be delivered vacant and ready for conversion to a single-family home.
Multiple outdoor terraces, a garden, and 10 wood-burning fireplaces certainly can’t hurt. All five units have soundproof rooms and high-end appliances. Two apartments have balconies, the ground-floor has a patio, and the penthouse features a private elevator and roof garden.
Built in 1835, the home contains many of its original moldings and salvaged historic details like mahogany doors, original mantles, a grand staircase, and wide-plank pine floors. Ceiling heights throughout range from nearly 10 feet to over 15 feet. Modern upgrades include a hydraulic elevator, central air, a dramatic oversized penthouse skylight and fully upgraded electrical and plumbing systems.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield reportedly cozied up in the house while dating and filming “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2012; Glenn Close spent eight long years–including the time she was filming “Fatal Attraction”–in residence here.
This home is located immediately across the street from the landscaped gardens of the General Theological Seminary. A special attribute of the block is the result of an agreement reached in 1835: All of the homes on the south side of the street must be set back 10 feet from the front lot line, which, taken with the view of the Seminary gardens, gives the block a unique feeling.
This option-packed property can be delivered vacant and ready be converted to a massive single-family home, used strictly as an investment property or configured as a live-in-plus-income building. Two of the building’s units are currently listed for rent, one for $9,950 and another for $10,550, so you could even give the home a trial run.
