Hilary Swank’s Fashionable Former West Village Townhouse Hits the Market
What could be more swanky than living in a West Village townhouse formerly owned by actress Hilary Swank? Sitting on charming, tree-lined Charles Street, the fashion-forward beauty is four floors of fabulous listed at $10.995 million.
The P.S. I Love You star and her then-husband Chad Lowe picked the property up in 2002 for $3.9 million and made a sweet profit four years later when they sold it for $7 million. Continuing to rise in value ever since, the current owner is none other than Harry A. Lawton III, the former president of Macy’s. Unsurprisingly, the interiors are just as gorgeous as the iconic department store on 34th Street.
With black and white details weaved throughout the grand yet intimate spaces, there is subtle drama to the design without losing that classic West Village coziness. A fireplace even sits in the sleek kitchen for added warmth, balancing the modern clean lines infused during careful renovations. Built in 1869, there are plenty of original elements all around, including special moldings and restored woodwork.
Outdoor spaces like a garden and an expansive terrace create an urban oasis. Leave all city stress or hassles at the door and unwind. Plus, with four spacious bedrooms placed throughout the home’s stylish levels, there is plenty of room to host guests and show off this charming corner of NYC.
Christopher Kromer and Norhana Afrin of Halstead Real Estate have the listing, which Curbed first reported is for sale.
