Jimmy Fallon Trims Asking Price of Whimsical Gramercy Park Penthouse
In March of this year, late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon and film producer Nancy Juvonen listed their New York City penthouse, giving a colorful peek into their world that we didn’t even know we needed. At that time, it was asking $15 million, but now after months of waiting for a buyer on the market, they’ve brought the price down to $12.5 million.
While this is still no small sum, it’s also not your average Manhattan pad. At the hands of the sellers, an extensive renovation combined four units in the building to create this massive penthouse atop 34 Gramercy Park East. But, the job wasn’t finished there. The cozy, plaid-clad ‘Saloon Room’ has a custom-designed wet bar and vintage barback while the kitchen and living room are full of groovy shapes and eclectic décor. Whimsical quirks and surprises continue in the pantry, which used to be a working studio and is therefore sound-proof.
As one might expect from the notably fun-loving host, the penthouse also goes above and beyond in the kids’ areas. A hidden playroom tucked under the staircase has everything from monkey bars to secret hatch doors to an intercom that connects to the upstairs playroom.
In total, there are 6 bedrooms spread across the home’s three vibrant levels. While its personality is charming and refreshing on the market in a sea of white and bright listing photos, perhaps its distinct look has been intimidating to buyers. This new price might sway anyone on the fence with millions to spend in NYC to come by.
Jeremy V. Stein and Debbie Korb of Sotheby’s International Realty still hold the celebrity listing.
