Hillary Swank and former husband Chad Lowe doubled the value of their New York townhouse in just four years, and the interiors of their marital home are gorgeous.
The Hollywood couple snapped up the traditional brownstone home for just £3 million in 2002, selling it four years later for £6.4 million. The property is now back on the market again, for £8.5 million.
Spread over four floors, the charming property features gorgeous living spaces, five fireplace, four bedrooms, a study, library, wine room and gym plus dressing room, double pantries in the kitchen, two full bathrooms and a powder room, a private terrace and a seriously lush rear garden.
Hilary Swank and her husband made sure to retain plenty of the property’s original features, including original architectural details, fireplaces, restored woodwork, tasteful mouldings, built-in cabinetry and hardwood floors.
Located on the historic tree-lined Charles Street in the West Village, the home offers a coveted location on the quintessential Village block, in close proximity to all the area’s best offerings.
Up the handsome brownstone’s front stoop, through double entry doors awaits the loft-like entrance hall graced by airy 11 foot tall ceilings. Through the entrance hall, there’s a formal living room with 11 foot ceilings and a gas fireplace, leading through to an inviting library with a gas fireplace that’s flanked by built-in bookshelves and cabinetry.
