During her teenage years (h/t Wall Street Journal), actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow lived in this grand Upper East Side townhouse off Central Park at 9 East 92nd Street. According to city property records, her parents, late producer Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner, owned the seven-bedroom home from 1984 to 1992. According to the Journal, Paltrow was 11 when her family moved from California to NYC, where she attended the prestigious Spence School, an all-girls private school just around the corner from her then-home.

The home was built in 1891 by the architect Walter Reid, Jr. for his father in the Renaissance Revival style.

As the listing details:

Because of its exquisite location just east of Fifth Avenue in the middle of a block with low townhouses to the north and south, this house benefits from the most extraordinary light at all times of the day and during all seasons. In addition, as it is 20 feet wide, it has very high ceilings and exceptionally large windows which allows sunlight to flood into the building for ever-changing light as the day passes.

The main entrance is on the garden level, where a large, grand foyer welcomes you. From here, is the cozy eat-in kitchen.

This level opens to the magical rear garden, which has climbing vines on its brick walls, a tiled fountain, and incredible landscaping that even includes an orange tree.

On the parlor floor, a formal landing opens to the front-facing living room and rear dining room, the latter of which has a wood-burning fireplace, a butler’s pantry with a separate stairway from the kitchen, and a deck with a staircase that leads down to the garden. The living room has yet another wood-burning fireplace (there are six total throughout).

On the third floor, you’ll find a wood-paneled library (complete with a wet bar), as well as the primary bedroom that has his-and-her dressing rooms, both with adjacent en-suite bathrooms.

There are two more en-suite bedrooms on the fourth floor, one of which opens to a private terrace. Also on this floor is a laundry room. Two more en-suite bedrooms are on the fifth floor, along with a third smaller bedroom.
