Anne Hathaway Bids Her Posh NYC Penthouse Adieu

By Kathryn M.
Occupying the fifth floor of a Neo-Georgian mansion on the Upper West Side, the gracefully renovated property is currently listed for $3,495,000.

Anne Hathaway’s picturesque, two-bedroom penthouse, just steps away from Central Park, is looking for a new owner. The Academy Award–winning actor purchased the home in 2016 with her partner, Adam Shulman, for $2,550,000. Throughout the last few years, the couple have renovated the interior, revitalizing original details while infusing the space with their own taste and style.

Featuring a grand entrance with an original sweeping staircase, the Neo-Georgian mansion at 18 West 74th Street offers a chance to step back in time. Dating back to 1904, the five-level building was among the last private homes to be constructed on the Upper West Side. Today, it is arranged as a five-unit co-op.

The fifth-floor penthouse is accessed by a private, key-locked elevator, from which an elegant gallery leads into the open-concept living areas. The family/dining room and kitchen area are all capped with 18-foot ceilings while white oak herringbone floors runs throughout.

Bathed in natural light from a skylight, the home's cozy kitchen sits right off of the entrance gallery. Custom cabinetry spans across an entire wall, offering plentiful storage and hiding built-in appliances. Designer pendant lights and open shelving add to the modern look.

The kitchen boasts a minimalist style, featuring cleverly concealed cabinetry and Lumix quartzite countertops. Appliances from Miele, including a 30-inch electric range, cater to easy entertaining. The dining and living room flow out onto an adjacent rooftop terrace. This partially covered oasis offers an additional dining space, along with an outdoor kitchen and seating area for entertaining.

On the opposite side of the dining area is the living room, which features an ethanol-burning fireplace. Tall, 18-foot ceilings create a dramatic sense of space, while large, in-swing French doors extend the living area out onto a rooftop patio.

The south-facing terrace includes a dining space for up to eight, as well as several spots for lounging. Integrated lighting, audio, and irrigation were also installed as part of a recent renovation.

A spacious master suite awaits in the home’s private wings, featuring a large bath with freestanding tub. The second bedroom also includes a full bath, which is clad in Aurora Blue marble. Private storage is also available with the property.

A pergola covers the outdoor dining area while fencing and shrubbery provide some measure of privacy while still allowing for enjoyment of the sunshine.

18 West 74th Street Apt Ph is currently listed for $3,495,000 by Jeremy Stein of Sotheby’s International Realty, Downtown Manhattan Brokerage.
