Sarah Jessica Parker’s loss: Sarah Jessica Parker Matthew Broderick Loss
Published: July 5, 2015
Sarah Jessica Parker’s loss: Sarah Jessica Parker Matthew Broderick Loss, A 25-foot-wide Greek Revival-style townhouse on a prime tree-lined street in Greenwich Village that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick bought, refurbished and promptly returned to the market, sold for $18,250,000 and was the most expensive closed sale of the week, according to city records.
The “Sex and the City” star and her Broadway-star husband took a significant loss on the sale. They purchased the stately 1846 brick building at 20 East 10th Street, between Fifth Avenue and University Place, in March 2011 for $18,995,000, and undoubtedly invested more in updates and other changes in addition to the restoration done by the previous owners.
But the house failed to attract buyers when it was listed in late 2012 for $24.99 million, according to PropertyShark, or when it was lowered last summer to $22 million; it ultimately sold for $1.7 million below its most recent asking price of $19.95 million. The annual property taxes are about $92,695.
The sprawling townhouse has 6,800 square feet of space over five floors, including the ground level, which opens to a meticulously landscaped tiered garden in the back that can also be viewed from a Juliet balcony on the parlor floor; seven wood-burning fireplaces; and closets galore. There are six bedrooms and five full and three half baths. Three of the bedrooms are on the third floor, which includes a sitting area and library, according to the floor plans.
The master suite, which encompasses the entire fourth floor, has a fireplace and an en-suite bath that features an oval hand-carved stone tub and its own fireplace, along with a nearly 25-by-10-foot private terrace overlooking the rear garden. One floor up is the spacious family room and media center, with two skylights.
Then there are the closets – capacious enough to tantalize even Carrie Bradshaw, Ms. Parker’s fashionista “Sex and the City” character. The floor plans show a wall of closets near the master bath and a nearly 17-by-7-foot dressing room, as well as a walk-in closet, which, judging from the photographs that were in the listing, looked as if it had stored some of Ms. Parker’s own shoes and designer outfits.
The purchase and subsequent sale by Ms. Parker and Mr. Broderick were made through an entity called the Heirloom Trust, according to city records, with Frank Selvaggi, Ms. Parker’s longtime friend, who has served as her business manager, listed as the trustee.
The listing brokers, Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, were unavailable to comment on the transaction, according to a spokeswoman for Douglas Elliman. The buyer’s identity was shielded by the limited liability company Tenth Street Owner.
