It has been a long and winding road for the traditional four-story townhouse at 47 West 9th Street, and the saga isn’t over yet.
When the less-than-humble home first hit the market back in 2008, it was asking $16 million, but ultimately sold for just under $13 million (and not to Anne Hathaway’s scammer ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri). The new owners spent two years renovating the place, before putting it back on the market in 2011 … for a genuinely baffling $28.5 million.
In a twist one might have predicted, that didn’t work: the place got a $3 million price chop, then the hit the rental market, then got re-listed in 2015 for a marginally more modest $26 million, which later got chopped to $23.75 million.
But alas, it didn’t sell then either, and so the classic abode has once again been re-listed, this time with a few more dollars grazed off the asking price. The latest ask: an even $22 million.
As for the house itself, it is very nice. The troubled abode has six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and six half baths. Among its assorted charms: multiple terraces, an abundance of fireplaces, tons of original details, a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, and handy staff quarters. Sixth time’s the charm?
