Always wanted to be a Kardashian? Worship Jacques Bermon Webster II, aka Travis Scott? Love “The Stars and Stripes Forever”? Who doesn’t? Have we got a New York City listing for you.
Built in 1839, this Greenwich Village townhouse has seen a lot of occupants in almost two hundred years: most recently the “Highest in the Room” hitmaker and his pregnant cosmetics-mogul-reality-star girlfriend Kylie Jenner, but also John Phillips Sousa, the composer of our National March (“The Stars and Stripes Forever”), who purchased the house in 1919.
The property has been on and off the market for nearly ten years with several brokers at a variety of prices as high as $31.95 million and now, the six-story building, which includes a decked-out rooftop, is available through “Million Dollar Listing” star Ryan Serhant at $26.5 million. Architectural Digest first reported the story.
The 22-foot-wide, 8,700-square-foot building has been gutted by developer/owner William Rainero, and Clodagh Design was responsible for the interiors, while the outdoor kitchen was designed by Silvano Marchetto, namesake proprietor of the now shuttered but once beloved and celeb-favored West Village eatery Da Silvano.
The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom property is not far from Washington Square Park, which can be seen from the roof deck, along with the Freedom Tower. Inside, cozy fall nights are assured with the modern fireplace in the living room that spills out to the 700-square-foot rear garden. Ceilings soar to a stunning 18’3”, while throughout the building, exposed original stone and brick walls add warmth.
Other rooms, accessed via a glass staircase or glass elevator, include a mezzanine lounge and, in the basement, a secondary kitchen and a media room. There’s also a hot tub on a terrace and a wellness space with glass-walled sauna. Occupying the entire fourth floor, the main bedroom includes a fireplace, a huge dressing room, and a slim terrace.
Just 24 and wildly rich (though not a billionaire), Jenner has already amassed an impressive collection of homes across Los Angeles. In addition to a couple properties in Hidden Hills, including a five-acre lot she picked up in April 2020 for nearly $15 million, she owns a palatial, 15,000-square-foot showplace in the Holmby Hills that she bought last year for $36.5 million. Meanwhile, Travis is based in nearby Brentwood, where he’s spent $29.3 million on two properties in the past year or so, and together the pair owns a $13.5 million house in the mountains above Beverly Hills.
