Buyer Snaps Up Jude Law’s Former Greenwich Village Penthouse

New, 9 comments

The actor rented the space in 2009, and had fruit-flinging issues

A lovely penthouse with celebrity pedigree is now off the market: This 3,500-square foot duplex, located in the Novare, was last listed for $12.5 million, and according to the New York Observer, a buyer has snapped it up. Thanks to its past as a Methodist church, gorgeous stained glass windows still grace the impressive penthouse, which has three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a 500-square-foot terrace, a library and media room, 20-foot ceiling living room, Venetian plaster walls, and much more.

Despite all of that, the penthouse is probably best known for being adjacent to a NYU dorm (so, a party pad); when actor Jude Law rented the place, students who saw him hanging out on his terrace would yell out to him, forcing him to resort to orange-flinging. Hopefully the new owners won't have the same problem.
