Last year, Jonah Hill traded his charming Colonial-style Santa Monica home — it went for $7.2 million in a clandestine off-market deal — for a clean-lined contemporary villa inside the hallowed gates of Malibu’s Colony enclave, for which he paid Chrome Hearts jewelry and apparel owners Richard and Laurie Stark $9 million.
Now, the showbiz polymath is looking to shake up his property portfolio even more, hoisting a deluxe loft in lower Manhattan on the market at a sliver under $11 million.
Hill bought the 3,200-square-foot spread about 6.5 years ago for almost $9.2 million, and currently has it leased, according to listings held by Nick Gavin at Compass. Taxes and common charges tally up to more than $12,000 per month
The condo is tucked into a high floor of The Schumacher, a handsome seven-story Romanesque Revival structure designed by Edward E. Raht in 1883 to house the Schumacher and Ettinger Lithography studio, and revamped by Morris Adjmi Architects into a full-service boutique building with just 20 units and what promo materials describe as “well-practiced discretion.”
Easily converted back to its original four bedrooms, the three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath condo showcases 12-foot barrel-vaulted brick ceilings, oversized arched wood-frame windows, fumed 7.5”-wide white-oak floorboards, and cold-rolled blackened steel accents. The walls have been limewashed by exacting designer Axel Vervoodt’s preferred artisan, according to promo materials, and the place is bursting at the seams with high-tech accoutrements such as a smart home system controlled by tablet or phone, a state-of-the-art audio-visual system with invisible speakers, and automatic shades throughout.
Other highlights include: a custom-made projector and screen in the 800-plus-square-foot combination living and dining room; a gourmet kitchen with nearly veinless white marble counters that waterfall over the ends of a large island snack bar; a master suite that stretches more than 31 feet long with two closets, one of them a walk-in, and two bathrooms, one of them with heated floor and steam shower.
Signed on to portray Jerry Garcia in the upcoming Martin Scorsese-directed biopic about the Grateful Dead, which he’ll also produce, Hill’s slew of blockbuster films include “Knocked Up,” “21 Jump Street” and its sequel “22 Jump Street,” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” Altogether, films in which he’s held down a leading or supporting role have grossed nearly $5 billion in worldwide box office receipts.
