Hugh Jackman’s West Village Triplex with a Modernist Design Lists for $38.9M
While Hugh Jackman thrived amidst the colors and costumes of The Greatest Showman a few years ago, the Australian actor’s NYC apartment is a stark contrast to the theatrical and peculiar Barnum & Bailey Circus. Characterized by crisp white interiors, clean lines, and constant Hudson River views, the triplex is bright and calming. Jackman and his wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness, purchased the home in 2008 for $21 million and raised their kids there. Now, they’d like to sell it for a hefty $38.9 million.
Jackman first rose to A-list fame in 2000 when he starred as Wolverine in X-Men. In the film, he scales the Statue of Liberty, which can actually be seen from this apartment. The building it sits within, 176 Perry Street, was designed by architect Richard Meier, known internationally for his modernist work. In a unique twist, Meier also designed this very home’s minimalist interiors for its previous owners.
More of a mansion, the triplex offers 11,000 square feet and five bedrooms across the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors. Light pours in through its floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating chic spaces everywhere you go.
Getting around the home is a wild ride. Be careful not to get dizzy going from the lower level to the top, as one continuous spiral staircase connects them all. Reaching the highest point earns you a sweet reward. The top floor truly puts on a show, solely holding the primary bedroom sanctuary with a spa-like bath and sauna, dressing rooms, and gym area. It also boasts a terrace, as does each level.
A vision of white, the triplex could give an interior designer “A Million Dreams.” Deborah Grubman and David Adler of The Corcoran Group hold the celebrity listing.
