The carriage house at 23 Cornelia Street in the West Village that Taylor Swift called home while her sprawling Franklin Street property was being renovated has sold for $11.5 million after several years on the market and a price chop of half its original ask of $24.5M, the New York Post reports. The pop star’s hefty $39,500 monthly rent sounds a little more understandable when you’ve seen the private pool, garage and rooftop terrace with city views.

Built in 1912, the carriage house was renovated by owner and Soho House executive David Aldea, who purchased it for $5.3 million in 2005. Aldea outfitted the five-story home with two master bedrooms, a two-story patio, an indoor swimming pool, and a private garage.

Overall, the 21-foot wide townhouse features four bedrooms, five baths, and two half-baths. The property boasts unique design elements, including double-height ceilings, three original fireplaces, and hardwood floors. The living room comes with a dramatic glass chandelier, patio access, and tons of wall space to show off artwork.

The updated kitchen comes equipped with a Wolf oven and gas stove, a Subzero fridge and wine fridge, all surrounded by stunning granite countertops. Another interesting feature, walls made of brick (imported from Paris), separate the dining area and kitchen and another chandelier can be found.

The room with the indoor swimming pool has Basalt stone tile floor, double height ceilings, and a chandelier. The pool itself measures 30 feet by 15 feet.

The third floor includes both master suites, which feature floor-to-ceiling custom windows that overlook Cornelia Street. The larger of the two bedrooms has a dual sink bathroom with two entrances. A separate bath connects to a private terrace, which includes an outdoor gas fireplace.

And the rooftop terrace faces south, allowing for incredible city skyline and Washington Square Park views.
