Sarah Jessica Parker's deal brings a win on home front; Karrueche Tran & Christina Milian hit the beach
Serial real estate hunter Sarah Jessica Parker has finally found a buyer for her Greenwich Village townhouse, after several price cuts and nearly three years on the market, Daily News real estate editor Katherine Clarke has learned. The property, a spectacular Greek Revival townhouse at 20 E. 10th St., between Fifth Ave. and University Place, has gone into contract, last priced at $22 million. It first came on the market for $25 million in 2012.
The fashionista and her hubbie, Broadway star Matthew Broderick, paid $19 million for the 6,800-square-foot townhouse in 2011 and renovated it from top to bottom. But the family reportedly never lived there. Instead, Parker used the home as a giant closet for her designer shoes and the couple remained in another townhouse in the West Village. The E. 10th St. property has five bedrooms, 12-foot ceilings, a high-tech security system, a walnut eat-in kitchen, a private terrace and a south-facing, split-level garden. Listing broker Fredrik Eklund, of “Million Dollar Listing New York” fame, didn’t respond to a request for comment on the final contract price.
