What was once Hilary Swank’s picture-perfect townhouse, at 33 Charles in the West Village has found a new owner. Mansion Global reports that Harry A. Lawton III, the president of Macy’s department store, paid $10.5 million for the three-story home. The townhouse was built in 1899, designated a New York City landmark in 1969, and has more recently undergone a gorgeous renovation. Adding to the home’s cachet, Swank lived here with then-husband Chad Lowe from 2002, when she purchased it for $3.9 million, until 2006, when it was sold for $8.25 million. The townhouse was then listed this June by Corcoran for $11.995 million and went into contract early November. The sellers, according to property records, are Clyde and Summer Anderson, who run Books-a-Million, the second largest bookstore chain in the U.S.

The 3,736-square-foot home holds three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a library and home office. More historic touches like gas fireplaces and the original woodwork were joined by new finishes and systems, plus dramatic walls of glass that open to the backyard garden.

An upgraded kitchen, with limestone flooring, leads to tall steel casement doors that open up into the backyard. The space features a six-burner Wolf range with a double oven, an extra-wide SubZero fridge and two Bosch dishwashers.

A luxurious master suite occupies an entire floor of the townhouse. It’s complemented by a well-appointed bathroom and spacious dressing room that could double as a nursery or home office. The master bedroom and bathroom both have new gas fireplaces. Finally, on the top floor there are two more bedrooms and a family room/den, plus another family-sized bath.
