Gerard Butler, the Scottish actor best known for his role in the movie “300,” is selling his sprawling 3,150-square-foot home in Chelsea for $5.99 million. Located at 139 West 19th Street, it was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest magazine in 2010, and with good reason: the converted manufacturing warehouse boasts 11-foot tall mahogany doors, a ceiling fresco in the foyer, countless crystal chandeliers, and a wooden arch support from a Bronx cathedral. According to the New York Post, Gerard first purchased the duplex loft in 2004 for $2.575 million.

The unique style of the apartment can be credited to the architect Alexander Gorlin, who gutted the first level to create the spacious loft that has 13-foot-tall ceilings with exposed beams. To further this modern vintage vibe, as the listing describes it, production designer Elvis Restaino mixed old architectural gems with “modern movie-type construction” during a multi-year process.

In the main section of the loft, there is a huge medieval-style wood and iron table and brick-framed windows. The open kitchen is equipped with commercial grade appliances, an “excavated-looking backsplash” and more chandeliers.

The apartment includes a theater, which is framed by a pair of Indian columns and a wooden arch support from a Bronx cathedral. The lion’s head hails from an old library. An office and a guest bedroom with a full bathroom can also be found on the first level.

On the loft’s second floor, the master suite spans 1,200-square feet and sits next to an outdoor space. According to the listing, the owner describes the unique style as “bohemian old-world rustic chateau with a taste of baroque.”
