Nathan Lane Parts Ways with NYC Home of Over 20 Years

Nathan Lane, a household name and screen & stage legend, just sold his 2,757-square-foot Tribeca apartment. Purchased by the actor in 1999, the three-level space’s touches make it one-of-a-kind. DailyDEEDS covered the unit’s listing in July 2021 at a price of $4.65 million, and the sale closed in early February for $4.275 million.

As part of The Merchants House condominium, a circa-1891 building, the home provides pre-war details with updated finishes. Lane brought in esteemed designer William Sofield to design it, who created a dramatic yet inviting setting of Arts and Crafts style. The pièce de résistance has to be the custom, handcrafted fireplace, which will warm up the open living area during chilly Manhattan winters. The distinctive characteristics, and wall decor in the listing photos, pay homage to Lane’s artful career.

While the main floor is ideal for easy entertaining, head upstairs to find the primary suite or downstairs to see the second bedroom, which could be used as a creator’s studio or office instead.

To top off the perks, the building is just steps away from world-famous restaurants, shops, and parks. Downtown living with celeb prestige, the new owner has a lot to look forward to. Mary Ellen Cashman and Leslie Davidson of Compass represented Lane in the deal.
