Lower Manhattan Loft sought by Jonah Hill for $11 million
In a clandestine off-market deal last year, Jonah Hill sold his charming Santa Monica home for $7.2 million for a clean-lined contemporary villa in Malibu's Colony enclave, which he paid Chrome Hearts jewelry and apparel owners Richard and Laurie Stark $9 million for.
Now the showbiz polymath has listed a deluxe loft in lower Manhattan for under $11 million to shake up his portfolio even more. According to listings held by Compass, Hill bought the 3,200-square-foot spread almost 6.5 years ago for almost $9.2 million. Over $12,000 is spent each month on taxes and common charges.
A handsome seven-story Romanesque Revival building designed by Edward E. Schumacher houses the condo on a high floor of The Schumacher. Built in 1883 to house Schumacher and Ettinger Lithography, the building was remodeled by Morris Adjmi Architects into a boutique building with only 20 units and what promo materials describe as “well-practiced discretion” in promo materials.”
Its three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 7.5"-wide fumed white oak floorboards can easily be converted back to its original four bedrooms with its barrel-vaulted brick ceilings. Axel Vervoodt's preferred artisan limewashed the walls, according to promo materials, and the house is equipped with high-tech amenities like a smart home system that can be controlled via tablet or phone, an audio-visual system that has invisible speakers throughout, and automatic shades.
Among the other highlights of the home are: a custom projector and screen in the combined living and dining room; a gourmet kitchen with almost veinless white marble counters that fall over the ends of an island snack bar; a master suite that stretches over 31 feet long with two walk-in closets and two bathrooms, one of which has a heated floor and steam shower.
His slew of blockbuster films include “Knocked Up,” “21 Jump Street” and its sequel “22 Jump Street,” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”; Hill will also produce the upcoming Martin Scorsese biopic about the Grateful Dead. The box office receipts of all films in which he has played a leading or supporting role are nearly $5 billion worldwide.
