Hal Prince's Colorful NYC Townhouse Finally Finds a Buyer
The West Side Story producer has sold his six-story Upper East Side home, which was last listed at $19.95 million.
We've been watching Broadway legend Hal Prince's Upper East Side townhouse ever since we first laid eyes on the listing photos earlier this year. The home has a lot of personality, which you have to admire, but we wondered if the eclectic decor might be a little too, well, theatrical for some buyers. Apparently it now has a buyer, according to the New York Observer.
The Georgian-style home was originally listed with Fox Residential Group back in November for $22 million. In March Prince relisted the townhouse with Brown Harris Stevens at $21 million. Though the closing price hasn't been revealed, the latest listing price was reduced to $19.95 — which would still yield a significant profit for Prince, who bought the home for $12.5 million in 2009.
The six-story, 7,300-square-foot home is filled with dramatic details: a four-story atrium, 20-foot ceilings, a master suite that takes up the entire fifth floor and a terrace on the sixth floor, right off the solarium. There are five "potential bedrooms," plus a staff suite in the basement; however, no description can do this house justice until you've seen the photos — especially the cherry-red carpeting and interior AstroTurf.
