Sarah Jessica Parker’s former NYC home asks $5.5M for sale


In the 1990s, Ohio native Sarah Jessica Parker launched to fame for portraying the fictional writer Carrie Bradshaw, who lived in the West Village, on “Sex and the City.”

In real life, Parker — who briefly dated John F. Kennedy Jr. in the early 1990s — was living in the landmarked Collect Pond House, a 12-story Beaux-Arts building in Tribeca that dates to 1909.

Now, that former home — a top-floor pad, which has since been combined with a second unit below it — is offered as a sparkling duplex penthouse. It’s on the market for $5.5 million, down from its July ask of $5.85 million.

Fast forward to today, Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick own a double-wide mansion in the West Village. But this former Tribeca home, at 366 Broadway, is none too shabby.

It’s crowned by a dramatic 1,000-plus-square-foot landscaped roof terrace, featuring an outdoor kitchen, entertaining spaces and panoramic city views — from the Woolworth Building to the Empire State Building. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom spread — decked out with interiors by Cheryl Eisen’s Interior Marketing Group — is anchored by a staircase designed by architect Stephen Wanta. 

The residence also includes details such as ceilings more than 10 feet high, hardwood floors and striking arched windows. The residence boasts a 45-foot-long great room, as well as an eat-in chef’s kitchen, a home office and a dining area.

The main bedroom, on the lower level, comes with a Carrie Bradshaw-worthy custom walk-in closet and a spa-like bath. There’s also a guest suite with a private entrance, a third bedroom with lots of closets, a media room and a laundry room.

Parker sold her unit to the current owner in 1999, sources tell Gimme.

“She left behind an antique claw-foot tub in the bathroom, and unique dark wood and glass kitchen cabinets that we were told were made from cabinets salvaged from a cigar store downtown,” our source said, adding that the seller still has them in storage. Parker also installed “a staircase to the roof. It was a long staircase that ran against almost the whole width of the north wall, but this is not currently part of the apartment,” our source added.

IMG’s interiors focus on a neutral color palate, and abstract works by in-house artists to make the home pop.

The building, which was once the headquarters of the Royal Typewriter Company and home to textile manufacturers before it was converted to co-ops in 1979, recently underwent a seven-year restoration.

Amenities include a common rooftop and a bike room. The renovated lobby boasts double-height marble walls and a wrought-iron staircase. 

The listing brokers are Corcoran’s Claudia Saez-Fromm, her husband Mark David Fromm and Gianna Vigliotti.
