One of the only hints this classic, light-filled West Village townhouse was owned by the late star best known as Tony Soprano might be in the office — where both the wall-to-wall carpet and the wingback armchair are covered in leopard print.
The New York Post reports the 3,200 square foot apartment at 99 Jane Street that beloved actor James Gandolfini shared with ex-wife Marcy Wudarski Gandolfini — actually two apartments that the couple bought and then combined before their split in 2002 — just hit the market for $7.5 million. (The property has listed for rent for $21,000 per month since 2015, according to 6sqft.)
Apartment 2GH is a four bedroom, four bathroom home that’s actually a “townhouse-size pad” created by combining two apartments — the first purchased for $850,000 in 1999; the second for $1 million some time later — where the Gandolfinis raised their son, Michael. The design and decor of the home are a seamless blend of classic American decorating and architectural styles — with warm woodwork that exudes craftsmanship and a calming, tastefully neutral palette. (Aside from that very-Sopranos office.)
The light-filled corner unit with 12-foot ceilings looks out over Jane Street on one side and Washington Street on the other, just steps from the Hudson River Park and the Whitney Museum of American Art and everything the West Village and the heart of Manhattan have to offer.
The Post reports that the building was once home to wild parties in the penthouse — thrown by residents such as a then newly divorced Goldman Sachs director Richard Kimball, Jr. who occupied the top floor in 2010, followed by basketball star Amar’e Stoudemire when he played for the New York Knicks — but listing agent Julie Rupprecht at Corcoran assures future owners that 99 Jane Street is now just another “quiet building in the heart of the West Village, not far from the Meatpacking District, on a quiet, tree-lined street.”
