Swifties will apparently pay out just about anything for tickets to the Eras tour, but what about the West Village carriage house the place Taylor Swift spent a number of months in 2016? The 5,500-sq.-foot home at 23 Cornelia Road — where Swift lived briefly but, at the very least according to her lyrics, vividly, whilst her $50 million Tribeca loft was going through renovations — is now on the market place for $17.995 million with Corcoran’s Laurence Carty. Whether or not or not it will offer at that price is a subject of discussion amongst brokers.

The carriage dwelling previous marketed in 2019 for $11.5 million, in accordance to town documents. It’s been renovated in the years because Swift rented it and has 5 bedrooms, 4 comprehensive baths, two half-baths, and a quantity of terraces with gas fireplaces. There’s also an indoor lap pool and a garage — unconventional functions that some brokers say could win over a deep-pocketed purchaser. “I am the biggest fan of unique properties,” claims Sydney Blumstein, a Corcoran affiliate broker who grew up in Greenwich Village and has marketed a large amount of true estate there. “You cannot comp out a non-public swimming pool on a peaceful avenue like Cornelia.” For David Kornmeier, an associate broker at Brown Harris Stevens, the garage is the genuine draw for a certain tier of higher-profile consumers who never like remaining photographed receiving in and out of their vehicles: “Some folks like possessing a pool and some never, but all people likes a garage.”

But other brokers I spoke with pointed out that you could get a good deal a lot more square feet in the neighborhood for $18 million. And some homes with equivalent amenities have languished on the sector for substantially less: For example, 196 West Houston, a 7,200-square-ft dwelling with a two-vehicle garage that’s asking $12.95 million, has been on the market for 266 days. Or 33 Perry Avenue, which is now in contract, previous inquiring $16.9 million for 8,668 square toes. “You can buy something a great deal more substantial for that,” claims just one broker. “And I know Cornelia is dreamy, but there are also a ton of dining places on that block. It is sort of fast paced.”

Which also delivers us back again to the Swift connection. “It’s type of tangential,” as a person broker place it — likely not enough to inspire a buyer. But the singer’s short tenure at the deal with has turned it into a vacation spot for fans following her breakup with Joe Alwyn earlier this spring (for the non-stans, the tune “Cornelia Street” waxes nostalgic about the early times of their romance), which may be a deal breaker for the variety of buyer who would pay out virtually $18 million for a house with a non-public garage entrance. Walking out your door to the occasional horde of Swifties or sweeping up the bodega roses they leave guiding may possibly not attractiveness.
