Miranda Priestly’s Posh NYC Townhouse in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Lists for $27.5M
Nothing screams timeless New York City status and wealth like a townhouse on the Upper East Side. So, it’s no wonder that the creators of the 2000s cult classic The Devil Wears Prada chose the posh neighborhood for Miranda Priestly’s home. Now, the very townhouse filmed as the character’s residence is up for sale seeking $27.5 million.
Walking up to the 1907-built Manhattan mansion at 129 East 73rd Street— as Anne Hathaway, or Andrea, once did with ‘The Book’— would be a thrill for fans. The Neo-Italian Renaissance-style limestone and marble exterior is ornate and grand, giving the home an elegant yet fashionable face as one would expect.
Inside, the high style continues, which shouldn’t be a shock as all scenes unfolded within the interiors. From the entry gallery with a Murano chandelier to the arched doorways and signature curving staircase with vibrant blue carpeting, the listing showcases many of the signature design elements captured in the film.
Across six stories and roughly 12,000 square feet, an overall air of sophistication is palpable at every turn. On the floor you enter on, you’ll find a stunning white kitchen punctuated with pops of blue. With industrial lights hanging from the 1930s pressed tin ceiling, Carrara marble countertops, and full-size appliances from Viking and SubZero, the room is as beautiful as it is functional.
Scaling the iconic staircase, the next stop is the parlor floor, exactly where Andrea ran into a surprised Miranda Priestly. It still wears much of the same decor spotted in that scene, in fact, with blue sofas and geometric rugs giving it a playful twist. Traditional features such as the soaring French doors and two fireplaces ensure it feels stately at the same time. As you ascend further, graceful spaces continue to reveal themselves including six bedrooms. The lower level offers a final bedroom, as well as a laundry room and recreation room.
Adam D. Modlin at Modlin Group holds the listing, which was also a focal film location for the Gossip Girl finale.
