As part of her new album, Lover, Taylor Swift released a song titled “Cornelia Street,” where she mentions the Greenwich Village place where she briefly lived. She says, “I rent a place on Cornelia Street,” likely referring to the 23 Cornelia Street townhouse she once rented—which was sold earlier this year for $11.5 million, according to city records.
Swift rented the three-story townhouse briefly back in 2016 for around $39,500/month, while her Tribeca penthouse was being renovated. She owns several Tribeca properties, both at 153 and 155 Franklin Street.
While Taylor Swift keeps the interiors of her Tribeca digs pretty private—though you can see the occasional glance on Instagram—there’s plenty of visuals of the the Cornelia Street townhouse owing to its recent listing. Curious about what it looks like? Read on.
The 5,500-square-foot house has four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, several terraces, a garden, three fireplaces, a fitness room, and a large indoor pool. Its master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows. Some interior details include hardwood and basalt stone tile floors, and a lush Murano glass chandelier in the lounge area.
Before Swift moved in, in 2016, David Aldea, the house’s previous owner, had renovated the house’s interiors adding double-height ceilings, a private garage, and the indoor pool.
Located between Bleecker and West 4th streets in Greenwich Village, the house is steps from Washington Square Park. Deborah Grubman, Laurence Carty, and Markus Buchmeier of Corcoran had the listing when it recently sold.
