‘Stranger Things’ Producer Wants $15M for Bold Tribeca Penthouse
A penthouse at 161 Hudson Street is back on the market. In the midst of filming the fourth season of Stranger Things, an executive producer and frequent director of the show, Shawn Levy, and his wife, Serena, have listed their newly-purchased NYC apartment due to committing to filming projects on the West Coast and in Europe. Once home to comedian Jon Stewart as well, the couple dropped an unknown amount for spread back in April. Now just two months later, it’s asking $15 million and we’ll see if the apartment stays in the industry. Stranger things have happened.
Situated in Tribeca, atop a brick and limestone condominium, the home enjoys some of Manhattan’s finest dining and nightlife. But one need not ride the elevator all the way down to find comfort or entertainment. The 6,280-square-foot duplex’s design is bold and stylish, done by Monique Gibson with the intent to maximize the dramatic spaciousness. Downstairs, an open floor plan utilizes dark wallpapers and bright paint colors without losing light thanks to northern and eastern exposures. An impressive 38-foot long great room overlooks St. John’s Park, ideal for giving party guests a true New York City experience.
Upstairs, outdoor spaces, as well as the majority of the bedroom suites, await. As one ascends, a northwestern terrace and a private roof deck with a planter garden beckon.
In another life, 161 Hudson Street operated as a dried fruit and nut business. Dating back to 1910, it has had many chapters and also held machinery and paper companies at various points before becoming a condominium in 2004. Danny Davis, Lisa Balbuena, and Lisa Resnick of The Corcoran Group hold the listing.
