A tipster told 6sqft back in December that Jonah Hill was seen taking photos outside The Schumacher, the then-newly unveiled Noho condo conversion at 36 Bleecker Street. As it turns out, just two months prior he bought a unit in the building for $9.16 million, according to the Post. The unit, which was originally listed at $9.5 million, is a 3,280-square-foot, four-bedroom spread. It features the signature elements of the residence, including exposed brick vaulted ceilings, massive arched windows, restored original columns and beams, and views down to the building’s vine-covered courtyard.
The home has 12-foot ceilings and boasts a 22′ x 34′ corner great room that opens to the kitchen. The listing notes that there’s “extensive wall space designed to showcase large-scale works of art, multiple galleries, and stunning natural light.”
The bedrooms are in their own wing and all overlook the courtyard garden designed by Ken Smith (famous for MoMA’s roof garden) and all feature en-suite baths.
As 6sqft previously reported:
The seven-story, red-brick building was completed in 1883 to the designs of Edward E. Raht to house the Schumacher and Ettinger Lithography Studio. In 2012, architect Morris Adjmi (who is well known for his ability to sensitively blend projects with their historic surroundings while still displaying subtle, modern touches) was tapped to restore the Queen Anne Victorian and Romanesque Revival-style facade. This followed Stillman Development paying $45 million for the building.
Building amenities include a landscaped roof, fitness center, library, children’s playroom, refrigeration and bicycle storage.
Hill is no stranger to the neighborhood. Three years ago, he bought a Soho loft at 27 Howard Street for $2.65 million, but put it on the market in August 2014 for a hefty $3.8 million, later chopping the price to $3.5 million. And this past December, his brother, talent manager Jordan Feldstein, picked up a loft co-op at 37B Crosby Street in Soho.
