Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have finally sold their New York townhouse for a cool $18.25 million.
According to Curbed, the pair took a loss on the Greenwich Village home, which they purchased for $19 million as an investment property in 2011. They renovated the townhouse and put it on the market for $25 million, then slashed the asking price several times over the next three years.
Annual property taxes on the five-floor, six-bedroom, 6,800-square-foot townhouse are about $92,695, the Times reports. But wait, there’s more:
The master suite, which encompasses the entire fourth floor, has a fireplace and an en-suite bath that features an oval hand-carved stone tub and its own fireplace, along with a nearly 25-by-10-foot private terrace overlooking the rear garden. One floor up is the spacious family room and media center, with two skylights.
Then there are the closets — capacious enough to tantalize even Carrie Bradshaw, Ms. Parker’s fashionista “Sex and the City” character. The floor plans show a wall of closets near the master bath and a nearly 17-by-7-foot dressing room, as well as a walk-in closet, which, judging from the photographs that were in the listing, looked as if it had stored some of Ms. Parker’s own shoes and designer outfits.
According to the New York Times, the “Sex and the City” star and her Broadway-star husband took a significant loss on the sale. They purchased the stately 1846 brick building at 20 East 10th Street, between Fifth Avenue and University Place, in March 2011 for $18,995,000, and undoubtedly invested more in updates and other changes in addition to the restoration done by the previous owners.
Buy according to according to PropertyShark, the house failed to attract buyers when it was listed in late 2012 for $24.99 million.
The couple and their children never lived in the house, reports USA Today.
